Greg Universe / Historia | Wiki Steven Universe | Fandom
Greg Universe es un hombre humano, la pareja romántica de Rose Quartz y el padre de su hijo Steven.
Greg fue una vez un músico viajero que abandonó la universidad y dejó a su familia para convertirse en una banda unipersonal conocida como "Mr. Universe", acompañado por su manager, Marty. Cuando tocó en un concierto en Beach City a la edad de 22 años, la única persona que asistió fue Rose Quartz. Interesándose en Rose, pronto conoció a las Crystal Gems, antes de salir a la carretera de nuevo. Sin embargo, Greg no pudo olvidar a Rose y, como tal, decidió quedarse con ella en Beach City para comenzar una relación con ella.
Después de unos meses juntos, Pearl, que estaba celosa de su relación, le dijo a Greg que era "solo una fase" para Rose, debido a las diferencias entre sus especies. Después de que Greg intentó (en vano) acercarse a Rose fusionándose con ella, la pareja romántica habló entre sí sobre sus sentimientos y se acercó más que nunca.
Rose finalmente renunció a su forma física para dar a luz a Steven. En los años más jóvenes de Steven, Greg se encargó de criar a Steven hasta que pudiera mudarse con las Gemas de Cristal y aprender a usar sus poderes. Desde entonces, Greg se estableció en Beach City, donde vive en su camioneta y es dueño de un lavado de autos local,  apoyando a Steven con sus ingresos. 
Poco se sabe sobre la vida de Greg antes de conocer a Rose Quartz. Nació en West Keystone con el nombre de Gregory DeMayo y creció en la ciudad de Showne. Al parecer, fue criado rodeado de mucha familia, incluido Andy DeMayo. Sin embargo, eventualmente se alejó de la mayor parte de su familia cuando creció. En algún momento durante su adultez temprana, Greg abandonó la universidad comunitaria para convertirse en una estrella de rock.
Cuando Greg tenía veintidós años, había tomado posesión de una camioneta que le servía de hogar. Viajó con su manager con la esperanza de convertirse en una estrella de rock. En algún momento, actuó en un concierto en Beach City, pero la única persona que apareció fue Rose Quartz. Greg y Rose se conectaron instantáneamente entre sí, y el primero decidió abandonar un concierto en Empire City para poder entablar una relación con ella, para disgusto de Pearl.
Rose y Greg estuvieron en una relación romántica durante varios meses, y las cosas aparentemente iban bien. Sin embargo, Greg se enfadó después de que Pearl hizo varios comentarios sarcásticos sobre cómo a Rose solo le agradaba Greg porque era humano, y él nunca pudo conectarse realmente con ella ya que los dos no podían fusionarse. Esto hizo que Greg estuviera decidido a intentar fusionarse con Rose. Sin embargo, su intento de un baile de fusión con ella finalmente fracasó, y Rose se divirtió con la idea de que él pensara que la fusión entre un humano y una gema era posible. En este punto, Greg exigió saber si Rose lo respetaba, dándose cuenta de que en realidad no la conocía muy bien. Después de tener una conversación genuina por primera vez en su relación, Rose y Greg decidieron continuar como iguales.
Después de haber estado juntos durante aproximadamente un año, la amiga de Greg, Vidalia, lo acusó de cuidar a su hijo pequeño durante unas horas mientras ella estaba en el trabajo. Llevó al bebé a la playa, donde fue recibido por Rose. Mientras observaba al joven Sour Cream, Rose confesó que inicialmente había dicho que él y Greg eran especies diferentes, lo que la llevó a explicar que lo que más amaba de los humanos era su capacidad para crecer y cambiar, al contrario de cómo las gemas permanecían iguales para siempre después de emerger. Greg pensó que esta declaración era muy poética y corrió a escribirla, pero cuando regresó se encontró con que Sour Cream y Rose se habían ido. Los encontró junto a una noria, después de haber subido Sour Cream. Su intento de bajar al bebé resultó en que ambos tuvieran que ser rescatados por Rose Quartz. Poco después de esto, Greg se dio cuenta de que dependía demasiado de quienes lo rodeaban y solicitó un trabajo en un lavado de autos, que finalmente llegó a poseer.
Greg y Rose continuaron su relación armoniosa durante varios años más después de esto. Finalmente, Rose decidió que quería tener un hijo humano con Greg, a pesar de saber que para hacerlo tendría que sacrificar su forma física. Rose quedó embarazada de Steven. Durante el embarazo de Rose, ella y Greg seleccionaron dos nombres para su hijo, Steven para un niño y Nora para una niña. Los dos también prepararon dos cintas de video para que su hijo las viera cuando fueran mayores.
Llegó el momento de que naciera Steven, y Rose abandonó su forma para dar a luz a él. Cuando Steven tenía unos meses de edad, él y Greg vivían en la casa de Vidalia por un corto período mientras ella estaba visitando a la familia. Greg, a pesar de amar a su hijo, todavía estaba de luto profundo por Rose en este momento. Un día, fue visitado por Garnet, Amethyst y Pearl, quienes habían venido trayendo regalos para Steven. Sin embargo, todos los regalos estaban destinados a personas mayores que el bebé, y las tres gemas no lograron comprender que Steven era una entidad separada de Rose. Después de que la gema de Steven comenzó a brillar, se lo robaron lejos de Greg en su camioneta, con Greg corriendo detrás de ellos tratando de recuperarse. Cuando finalmente alcanzó la camioneta estacionada, encontró a las tres Gemas en duelo por Rose, aún sin entender qué era Steven, y el propio Greg no estaba realmente seguro. Aún así, los cuatro acordaron que sería mejor para el niño mitad humano mitad gema si todos lo criaran juntos.
Steven vivió con Greg durante varios años después de esto, hasta que Greg se puso a trabajar en la construcción de una casa alrededor del Templo de Cristal. Después de la finalización, Steven se mudó al templo con las gemas, aunque Greg continuó siendo una presencia constante en su vida.
Steven busca a Greg y se sube a su camioneta, estacionada frente a su lavado de autos, para despertarlo. Sale con una plancha para gofres, pero Steven le asegura que no es un ladrón. Steven le dice a Greg que necesita el cañón ligero de Rose para hacer estallar el Red Eye.
Empiezan a buscar el cañón de luz láser de Rose en el cobertizo de almacenamiento de Greg. Mientras Steven busca dentro del cobertizo, encuentra una caja con los viejos CD de Greg. Posteriormente, Greg comienza a contarle a Steven la historia de cómo conoció a su madre. Mientras Steven continúa buscando, accidentalmente rompe el marco de una foto de sus padres. Cuando Greg lo tranquiliza y le dice: "Si cada chuleta de cerdo fuera perfecta, no tendríamos perros calientes", aparece una luz tenue en la parte de atrás del rebusque de Greg. Steven se da cuenta de que la luz emana del cañón. Colocan el cañón en un carro atado a la camioneta antes de conducir hasta la playa mientras escuchan una de las canciones de Greg. Llegan donde esperaban las gemas de cristal.
Steven lucha por activar el cañón, sin saber la frase de activación. Greg intenta consolarlo, repitiendo su dicho, lo que activa el cañón. Después de que Red Eye es derrotado, Greg se conmueve al darse cuenta de que la frase de activación fue inspirada por él. La marea sube, arrastrando la camioneta de Greg hacia el mar. Él y Steven lo persiguen.
Greg y Steven se rocían mutuamente con mangueras de agua mientras lavan la camioneta del alcalde Dewey. Greg le dice al alcalde que el lavado es gratis después de que Steven lo rocía con la manguera. De repente, un gato morado rocía a Greg con una manguera. Luego, el gato cambia de forma a Amethyst y lleva a Steven de regreso al templo para aprender a cambiar de forma.
Steven regresa para mostrarle a Greg que había transformado su dedo en un gato. Greg, sorprendido, deja caer su botella de agua y derrama agua sobre el gato, haciendo que se estremezca. Steven luego se va para mostrárselo a Lars y Sadie.
Vencido por los gatos, Steven regresa al túnel de lavado en busca de ayuda. Greg rocía a Steven con una manguera, asustando a los gatos y haciendo que Steven salte a la parte superior del lavado de autos. Steven expresa su pesar por el hecho de que nunca más podrá tener una pelea de agua con su padre, ya que los gatos odian el agua. Steven luego le pide a Greg que le rocíe más para deshacerse de los gatos. Greg lo hace, pero no es suficiente agua para detener a los gatos, por lo que Steven le pide que encienda el túnel de lavado. Greg se niega, diciendo que es demasiado peligroso dejar que Steven pase por el lavado de autos. Steven insiste, y Greg finalmente enciende el lavado, lo que elimina a todos los gatos, excepto uno en su dedo. Greg rocía rápidamente al último gato, curando a Steven.
Greg se ve en un flashback conduciendo su camioneta en un desfile.
Steven menciona que Greg hizo su traje de cumpleaños. También afirma que su padre solía conseguirle kazoos y un automóvil pequeño para conducir en su cumpleaños.
Steven se acerca a Greg, quien rocía a Steven con una manguera. Steven luego le dice a Greg que perdió algo importante: su figura de acción de Ranger Guy que Greg le regaló un día que pasaron juntos el año anterior. Greg no recuerda la muñeca en sí, pero recuerda haber pasado tiempo con Steven. Le da a Steven una bolsa de monedas de veinticinco centavos para conseguir un nuevo Ranger Guy.
Mientras Greg camina por Beach City para comprar un helado, queda enterrado bajo la enorme pila de GUYS Onion creada con el replicador de Pearl. Al final del episodio, Greg se acerca a Steven y le pregunta por qué tendría tantos problemas por un juguete. Steven le dice a Greg que solo quería el juguete por los recuerdos que había asociado con él.
Dentro de la habitación de Rose en el Templo de Cristal, Steven hace una réplica de Greg y el resto de Beach City. Steven habla con el falso Greg sobre lo extrañas que parecen las cosas en la falsa Ciudad Playa, sin darse cuenta de su condición de copia. El falso Greg le da a Steven una sabiduría sin sentido, terminando todas sus declaraciones con un riff de guitarra vocal. Cuando Steven se da cuenta de que todavía está en la habitación, el falso Greg desaparece.
Greg construye un gimnasio para que Steven, Lars, Sadie y él mismo hagan ejercicio. Dice que ha estado aflojando un poco su rutina de ejercicios y, como tal, necesita hacer ejercicio. Greg luego le pregunta a Pearl si quiere ver algunos sementales aficionados, lo que hace que se moleste y se vaya a la casa de la playa. Después de "Strong in the Real Way", Greg defiende el canto de Steven, diciendo que hizo un excelente trabajo al animarlos. Cuando Sugilite ataca la playa, Greg se puso ansioso por Steven, quien es arrojado por Pearl y rechazado por algunos de los ataques de Sugilite.
Steven va a It's a Wash para encontrarse con su Greg para el ensayo de Beach-a-Palooza, pero no puede ensayar con él, ya que el barco de Yellowtail está atascado en el túnel de lavado. Steven se va, decepcionado, diciendo que desea que el barco no se haya quedado atascado allí en primer lugar. De repente se teletransporta al pasado, confundido al principio, pero pronto se alegra de darse cuenta de que puede evitar que el barco se atasque. Corre hacia su padre y le grita: "¡Es gordo! ¡Es gordo!" Greg evita que Yellowtail lo invierta en el lavado de autos. Steven se da cuenta de que The Hourglass lo llevó atrás en el tiempo con alegría.
Sin embargo, mientras Greg intenta explicarle a Yellowtail que el bote es "gordo", el camión que tira del bote se mueve hacia atrás y golpea un poste, que se rompe y choca contra el camión, prendiéndole fuego. El fuego se extiende rápidamente al cable telefónico y prende fuego al túnel de lavado.
Greg aparece y les dice que salgan donde las Gemas ven que falta el océano. Steven, mientras está dentro de la Casa de la Playa, se prepara para encontrar a Lapis, ya que reconoce que toda la situación fue su culpa. No queriendo que esté solo, Connie, Greg y Lion quieren unirse a él en su búsqueda, y las Gemas agregan que obviamente tienen que irse.
Mientras conduce, Greg toca algo de música que le gustó a Rose, y Garnet, que no le gusta mucho, salta de la camioneta. Cuando llegan, ven una gran torre de agua que conduce al cielo. Lapis, sintiéndolos, grita que no deberían estar allí y que deberían dejarla en paz, y Steven responde que no se irán a menos que recuperen el océano. Lapis luego hace clones de agua de las gemas de cristal, y las gemas luchan contra ellas.
Durante la batalla, Greg se rompe la pierna por el clon de agua de Steven cuando hace que la camioneta caiga boca abajo desde una altura. Steven, diciéndole a Lapis que no quiere pelear más, activa su escudo debido a su enojo hacia Lapis por atacar a Greg y Connie, y su feroz sentimiento de amor para protegerlos. La vibración resultante del asalto que se desvía del escudo de Steven fuerza a los clones de agua a disiparse. Cuando las Gemas, Steven, Connie y Greg regresan, los residentes de Beach City lo felicitan como su héroe cuando el océano regresa.
Mientras Pearl arregla la camioneta de Greg, Greg le dice a su vieja cinta adhesiva que puede arreglarlo. Luego ofrece una mano y lucha por levantarse, pero falla. Steven le dice que se lo tome con calma. Entonces Steven sugiere que se quede con ellos hasta que mejore, una idea que a Pearl no le gusta mucho. Steven intenta curar la pierna rota de Greg después de que Amethyst le recuerda sus poderes curativos. Greg todavía lucha por ponerse de pie y le asegura a Steven que solo necesita más práctica y animarse. Las gemas permiten que Greg se quede con ellos, lo que hace que Steven y Greg pasen más tiempo juntos.
Garnet les dice a las gemas que la geoda está rota y que deben irse de inmediato, incluido Steven. De repente, Greg se siente solo, y Pearl le da el Warp Whistle, que alerta a las gemas cuando las necesitan en el templo. Steven se apresura hacia su padre, después de que se escucha el Warp Whistle, y Greg dice que solo se estaba asegurando de que funcionara. Después de dos veces más, Steven regresa y Garnet le dice que necesitan sus poderes curativos para arreglar la grieta. No funciona, y Steven duda de sí mismo, cuando su padre usa el silbato, quiere mostrarle un comercial a Steven y luego le pide a Steven que le consiga unas donas del Gran Donut.
Cuando Steven se vuelve para preguntar qué tipo de donas quiere, lo ve de pie y bailando en la cocina. Greg admite que la saliva curativa de Steven curó su pierna en It's A Wash y que mantuvo la fachada de que estaba rota ya que "sólo quería vivir con [su] hijo de nuevo". Steven afirma que Greg es la razón por la que sus poderes curativos no funcionan. Greg intenta asumir la responsabilidad del problema, afirmando que todo es culpa suya. Steven acepta que todo es culpa de Greg y se aleja enojado.
Steven regresa para disculparse y ve que su padre está usando el Warp Whistle para ir a la Geode. Salta a la viga con Greg. La grieta en la Geoda ahora se está ensanchando aún más. Steven se lame ambas manos e intenta arreglar la grieta, una vez más sin hacerlo. Greg le dice que no se preocupe y que tiene otra idea, sacando su cinta adhesiva para tapar la grieta. Ahora completamente sellado con cinta adhesiva, la tormenta se detiene y el cielo se despeja.
Más tarde ese día, Greg se sorprende al ver su camioneta completamente reparada por Pearl. Para mostrar su gratitud, le da a Pearl un gran abrazo para su horror. Antes de irse, le entrega a Steven el rollo de cinta adhesiva "por si acaso" vuelve a necesitar su ayuda. Esa noche, mientras Steven se acuesta en su cama, le da las buenas noches a su padre, quien casualmente estacionó la camioneta en la playa justo afuera.
Steven convence a su padre para que le ayude a construir una nave espacial para Pearl. Para ayudarlo, Greg le muestra a Steven el granero de su tía y su tío, ya que la pareja estaba bastante interesada en la huida y el hecho de que guardaban todas y cada una de sus pertenencias en el cobertizo. Usando las cosas en el cobertizo, Greg y Steven construyen una pequeña, miserable, "nave espacial" que parece un automóvil. Llevan a Pearl al granero para mostrarle su nave espacial. Antes de probarlo, Greg le dice a Steven que siempre puede salir bajo fianza y que no hay vergüenza en hacerlo. El barco se rompe durante el lanzamiento. Pearl sugiere que sus cálculos pueden haber fallado, a lo que Greg responde que no pueden fallar ya que no hicieron nada.
A través de varios montajes, el trío usa partes sobrantes del cobertizo para construir un prototipo con un motor mejorado y un ala delta. Una vez que Steven lo prueba y lo aterriza, Greg descubre que Pearl se toma en serio la idea de llevar a Steven al espacio. Negándose a dejarlo ir, Greg afirma que está "conectando a tierra" a Steven, "conectando a tierra" ya que no es capaz de dejar la Tierra. Pearl construye la nave espacial por su cuenta y, durante la noche, despega con Steven.
Greg se despierta debido al sonido y el retumbar del motor de arranque. Cuando sale de su camioneta, es derribado por la explosión de la nave espacial mientras despega. Contacta a Pearl a través de su walkie-talkie y le pregunta a dónde va. Pearl le dice a Greg que no se preocupe, ya que solo llevará a Steven al sistema estelar más cercano y lo devolverá en 50 años, sorprendiendo tanto a Greg como a Steven.
Greg exige que bajen a Steven de inmediato, pero se interrumpe cuando Pearl finaliza la transmisión. Steven intenta convencer a Pearl de que abandone la nave, pero Pearl, emocionada ante la perspectiva de estar de vuelta en el espacio, no escucha. El barco comienza a desmoronarse a medida que asciende más alto en el aire. Con la destrucción de la nave inminente, Steven trata de convencer a Pearl con urgencia; él le agarra la cabeza y le dice: "A veces, solo tienes que saber cuándo pagar la fianza".
Finalmente escuchando, Pearl los expulsa de la nave justo antes de que explote. Greg se sorprende al ver la nave explotar, pensando que murieron en la explosión. Escanea el cielo con sus binoculares y se siente aliviado cuando los ve. Se acuesta y se acurruca en posición fetal.
Para impresionar a los padres de Connie, Steven convence a las Gemas de fusionarse en Alejandrita para hacerse pasar por su madre. Steven aparece 20 minutos tarde con Greg y Alexandrite, una enorme fusión de seis brazos de Garnet, Amethyst y Pearl. Greg se presenta a sí mismo y luego a Alejandrita como su esposa. Steven inventa mentiras sobre cómo se conocieron y lo que hicieron, para gran desaprobación de Connie.
Después del comportamiento mucho menos que impecable de Alejandrita en la cena. Alejandrita comienza a desestabilizarse por comer camarones después de un tiempo más. La discordia hace que ella se vuelva a dividir en Garnet, Amethyst y Pearl. Garnet, molesto con Amethyst y Pearl por poner sus necesidades antes que las de Steven, los regaña y los golpea en la cabeza.
Connie y Steven deciden huir para poder ser amigos sin tener que preocuparse por la desaprobación de los padres de Connie. Las Gemas castigan airadamente a Steven frente a los Maheswarans. Garnet castiga duramente a Steven sin cenar durante 1,000 años, pero Pearl insiste en que nunca lo matarían de hambre y, en cambio, le quita sus privilegios de televisión durante 1,000 años. Greg luego dice que lo hicieron porque lo aman.
Greg y Steven están comiendo sandías cerca del lavado de autos por la tarde. Luego tienen una competencia para ver quién escupe las semillas de la manera más 'genial', terminando con Steven ganando con su "Hurricane Spin Spit". Este último movimiento da como resultado que Steven reciba la corona convirtiéndose en "Watermelogisty".
Cuando Steven se despierta al día siguiente, todavía fuera del lavado de autos, ve que está rodeado de sandías. Sorprendido al ver que las sandías tienen la forma de él, inmediatamente llama a las Gemas de Cristal, a lo que Pearl explica que la madre de Steven tenía la capacidad de cultivar plantas sensibles que la protegían y que él pudo haber heredado esto. Greg luego pregunta qué hacer con las sandías después de pisar una. Esto le da a Steven la idea de comenzar un negocio con ellos.
Dentro de la Dimensión Rosa, Steven encuentra la copia de Rose de la imagen de ella y Greg. En la cinta de video de Rose Quartz, filmó a Greg jugando en la playa. Ella muestra a Greg haciendo un baile extraño, él durmiendo con una gaviota en su estómago y ella pidiéndole que hable de sí mismo. En otro clip, se ve a Greg diciéndole a un Steven nonato que iba a tener el padre más genial de la galaxia. Toca su guitarra a distancia mientras Rose deja su mensaje para Steven.
Steven y Connie están jugando en la nieve en It's a Wash cuando Greg viene a decirles que tienen que ir y llevarse a Connie a casa debido a la inminente tormenta de nieve. Steven no quiere y, en un esfuerzo por detenerse, le informa a Greg que su camisa no lo hace parecer un padre responsable. Queriendo mantener su imagen de padre responsable de los Maheswarans, Greg se prueba con otro, pero Steven dice que ese tampoco se ve bien. Mientras Steven está ganando tiempo para que él y Connie puedan jugar más, Greg se prueba más atuendos. Finalmente se deciden por una camisa de rayas blancas y azules con zapatos planos altos y anillos de estrellas en la espalda.
Greg comienza a conducir a los niños, pero se salen de control en el hielo. Deciden caminar a partir de ese momento. Cuando llegan a la residencia Maheswaran, los padres de Connie están indignados por lo tarde que es y se enfurecen aún más cuando Connie estornuda. Greg luego menciona que chocaron la camioneta, lo que enfureció al padre de Connie mientras preparaba el sofá cama para que pudieran pasar la noche. Steven se acuesta en el sofá angustiado cuando el patrón de estrellas en la camisa de Greg comienza a brillar y cambiar de color.
Steven se despierta para descubrir que acaban de estrellar la camioneta y está confundido por qué está aquí, en este momento. Greg luego sugiere que caminen a la casa de Connie para llevarla a casa, pero Steven sugiere que simplemente se queden en la camioneta por la noche, tratando de evitar el incidente que había sucedido anteriormente. Están de acuerdo y comienzan a comer unos sándwiches de huevo y gofres cuando el Sr. Maheswaran los llama para decirles que vendrá por Connie y que se queden donde están. Steven luego ve los faros y observa cómo el Sr. Maheswaran se sale de control en la nieve y luego choca accidentalmente su auto contra la camioneta.
Steven luego aparece cuando Garnet lo besó y le preguntó qué sucedió. Garnet dijo que le había pasado su visión de futuro a Steven por un momento, dejándole ver lo que sucedería si no se iban en este instante. Steven luego toma la "decisión correcta" y se dirigen a la casa de Connie de inmediato, y llegan a salvo y a tiempo. Los padres de Connie están felices de que esté en casa y sugieren que Steven y Greg se queden a pasar la noche, en lugar de tener que conducir a casa con el mal tiempo.
Steven y Greg van de camino a guardar un letrero en el U-Stor de Greg. Cuando lo abren, muchas de las pertenencias de Greg se caen. Se le pide a Greg que haga una resolución de Año Nuevo para organizar la unidad de almacenamiento. Steven luego trae a Amethyst para ayudarlos a limpiar. Ella sugiere que se crea un sistema para separar la basura de la basura, por lo que Steven crea cajas para artículos para guardar, vender y quemar. Greg se da cuenta de que el marco y el cristal de una imagen con él y Rose Quartz están rotos.
Amethyst parece preocupada y se adentra más en el U-Stor, encontrando a Lil 'Butler, una de sus comedias favoritas. Steven pregunta qué es, por lo que Greg comienza ansiosamente a configurar el televisor para mostrárselo. Amethyst insiste en ver "solo uno, por los viejos tiempos". Greg está de acuerdo, pone la cinta y comienza la introducción de Lil 'Butler. Steven quiere volver a limpiar, pero Greg no. Steven se va, mientras Greg y Amethyst siguen mirando.
El día siguiente es Año Nuevo, y los residentes de Beach City esperan con ansias los fuegos artificiales que se celebrarán esa noche. Steven se detiene en Beach Citywalk Fries para preparar el desayuno para él y su padre y le dice a Peedee sobre "comenzar bien el Año Nuevo" limpiando el U-Stor. Cuando Pearl pregunta si Greg y Amethyst están saliendo de nuevo, ella revela que solían desaparecer durante días viendo a Lil 'Butler, hasta que de repente se detuvieron. A la medianoche, cuando comienzan los fuegos artificiales, Steven se da cuenta de que Greg se está perdiendo el espectáculo y va a buscarlo.
Steven encuentra a Amethyst y Greg, todavía mirando a Lil 'Butler. Greg se da cuenta de que le faltan los fuegos artificiales y trata de irse, pero Amethyst cambia de forma a Steven mientras trata de convencerlo de que se quede. Greg se enoja con su cambio de forma. Amethyst intenta animarlo transformándose en Greg. Empiezan a discutir. Greg se enoja con ella y le grita, diciendo que no puede quedarse y complacerla y que quiere ver los fuegos artificiales con Steven. Amethyst se enoja, vuelve a cambiar y menciona cómo tenía a alguien que solía estar allí para ella hasta que comenzó a salir con Greg. Amethyst le apuesta a Greg que se quedaría con ella y cambia de forma a Rose, lo que lo hace darse la vuelta con desesperación. Steven interviene y les dice que se detengan y suelten el pasado. De repente, la pantalla del televisor se vuelve estática y Steven comienza a interrogar a Greg y Amethyst. Sintiéndose culpable, Amethyst sale corriendo.
Al día siguiente, Greg y Steven regresan a la unidad de almacenamiento, jurando terminar el trabajo. Para su sorpresa, encuentran a las gemas, que han limpiado la unidad y han empaquetado todo. Cuando se le pregunta, Garnet dice que fue idea de Amethyst limpiar todo, y luego Amethyst dice apresuradamente que pueden llevar todo al templo y guardarlo en su habitación. Ella se sonroja y le da a Greg una caja que dice "MANTENER", que contiene la foto de él y Rose. Greg le agradece y las gemas regresan con las cajas al templo, mientras él y Steven cierran la unidad de almacenamiento vacía.
Steven les explica a las gemas que nunca sabe nada, pero los tiene a ellos, Greg y Connie para que le cuenten cosas. En la sala de control de Prime Kindergarten, Steven cita a Greg como un ejemplo de humano.
Steven dibuja volantes para las lecciones de guitarra de Greg. Después de vender camisetas con Buck Dewey con el mismo diseño, Steven va a ver a Greg y se da cuenta de que nadie se ha sentado todavía para una lección con él. Enojado, Steven regresa al Almacén Abandonado para encontrar a Buck haciendo más camisetas, donde le dice a Steven que su diseño es realmente terrible y que encuentra que lo mucho que ama a su padre es "hilarante". Discuten, y Buck menciona cómo continuará haciendo las camisetas mientras persista la tendencia antes de irse para unirse a su padre en una conmemoración en el banco.
Después de interrumpir la conmemoración, Steven le da a Greg la última camiseta de Guitar Dad diciendo que es una edición súper limitada. Buck aparece para disculparse y Steven acepta. Greg pregunta si Buck va a tomar una foto, pero Buck responde que quiere tomar una lección mientras abre su chaqueta para mostrar su camisa de Guitar Dad.
Steven está pasando el rato con Greg en su camioneta, tocando música. Greg toma una lata de refresco y bebe de ella, ya que una imagen está pegada al fondo de la lata. Luego se cae, Steven lo atrapa. La imagen muestra una imagen de un Greg más joven con su manager, Marty. Greg explica que Marty era su manager, luego afirma alegremente que Marty está muerto para él. Steven luego pregunta cuál es el trato. Greg explica que Marty fue en realidad parte de cómo se unió a Rose, y Steven pregunta por la historia completa, y Greg cumple con la historia de cómo conoció a Rose "ahora incluyendo a Marty". Greg comienza a tocar una melodía de una canción que interpretó cuando conoció a Rose.
Se produce un flashback en el que Greg canta "Comet" en su concierto. Cuando Greg deja de tocar, mira a una audiencia vacía, a excepción de Rose. Ella aplaude y se acerca a su mesa llena de sus álbumes, donde él va y le ofrece una camiseta gratis junto con un álbum. Abre las puertas traseras de la camioneta solo para que Marty y Vidalia salgan. Marty le prohíbe a Greg regalar algo, mencionando dinero y cómo obtiene el 75% de las ganancias, y cómo el 75% de 0 sigue siendo 0. Greg luego se da vuelta y ve que Rose se ha ido. Más tarde, buscando a la "Extraña Dama Rosada", se aleja en una dirección aleatoria y se encuentra en la cerca de alambre del Templo de Cristal. Ve un búho morado posado en la cerca y le pregunta en voz alta si sabía sobre Rose. Para su sorpresa, la lechuza responde que si le contaba sobre ella, tendría que matarlo antes de volar de regreso al templo (en este momento, la Casa de la Playa aún no se ha construido). Greg, ansioso por saber más, sube la cerca de alambre y va directamente al templo.
En el Warp Pad del templo, Amethyst le informa a Pearl sobre Greg, diciendo que un humano acaba de hablar con ella. Amethyst luego lo ve y lo señala a Pearl. Pearl no está segura de qué hacer hasta que Garnet se deforma y amenaza con arrojar a Greg sobre la cerca. Sin embargo, aparece Rose y le dice a Garnet que se detenga. Garnet, avergonzado, lo deja caer rápidamente. Rose luego le preguntó si estaba bien antes de que Greg le diera la camiseta a Rose. Mientras Rose se lo muestra a las Crystal Gems, Amethyst le pide a Greg que cante; Garnet convoca un guante de forma amenazadora mientras le advierte que es mejor que su canción sea buena. Greg luego se da cuenta de que es tarde y se apresura a regresar a su camioneta.
Más tarde, Greg está acostado en la parte trasera de su camioneta mientras Marty lo lleva a Empire City para un gran espectáculo para ganar mucho dinero. Sin embargo, Greg no puede dejar de pensar en Rose. Greg se defiende y saca a Marty de su camioneta, dejándolo a un lado de la carretera. Greg regresa a Beach City y va al Templo. Después de llegar al templo, pisa el Warp Pad, cantando su canción para Rose. Después de la canción, Rose sale de su habitación para decirle a Greg que, aunque lo encuentra "terriblemente lindo", debe irse para poder perseguir sus sueños. Sin embargo, Greg se niega y dice que lo único que quería perseguir era Rose. Aturdida, Rose se sorprende y comienza a reír, mientras cae una lágrima. Cuando Greg termina la historia, Steven responde que Greg amaba a Rose, a lo que Greg comienza a hacerle cosquillas a Steven. Steven luego comenta lo malo que era Marty y Greg está de acuerdo, pero admite que si no fuera por Marty, no habría podido perseguir a Rose. El episodio termina con Greg colocando su foto con Marty junto a su foto con Rose y una foto de Steven con dedos de gato.
Steven escucha la nueva canción de Greg para su nuevo álbum, "Water Witch", que se basa en los eventos de "Ocean Gem". En la canción, Greg retrata a Lapis Lazuli como un villano, y Steven lo corrige, diciendo que Lapis solo quería irse a casa. Luego escuchan la Piedra de los Lamentos. Después de varios intentos de apagar la piedra y, finalmente, amortiguarla, las gemas creen que alguien está enviando un mensaje. Con todas las otras piedras previamente reunidas, concluyen que otra de las suyas les está enviando un mensaje desde el espacio. Sin embargo, el audio está distorsionado, lo que hace que el mensaje avanzado no sea claro. Al escuchar esto, Steven les dice que su padre podría ayudar con esto.
Greg intenta recibir el mensaje con su equipo de audio, pero la tecnología es demasiado avanzada para el equipo y sobrecarga la camioneta. Las gemas deciden frustrantemente regresar a la casa. Esto deja a Greg angustiado ya que solo quiere que las gemas tengan algo de fe en él, por lo que canta una canción sobre sus sentimientos. Luego, él y Steven teorizan que el mensaje de la piedra no es de audio, sino de video, y convencen a las gemas de que le den a Greg otra oportunidad.
Con la ayuda de las Gems, que reinician la camioneta, Steven conecta la piedra de los lamentos a un televisor. El mensaje finalmente es claro, y se revela que el remitente no es otro que Lapis. Amethyst y Pearl entran en pánico, creyendo que Peridot va a atacar la Tierra, pero Garnet permanece aparentemente tranquilo, solo afirmando que lograron recibir el mensaje. Garnet estrecha la mano de Greg y, para su deleite, le agradece su ayuda para decodificar el mensaje.
Greg está entre la multitud de residentes de Beach City que van y preguntan si la energía volverá pronto y no sabe que Steven ayudó al alcalde Dewey.
Steven habla con Greg sobre las gemas de cristal que se oponen a los robonoides de Peridot. De repente, ellos, al igual que el resto de Beach City, ven un objeto extraño en el cielo: una mano verde gigante apuntando directamente a ellos. Las Gemas de Cristal creen que Peridot finalmente ha llegado y, con Steven, usan el Quartizine Trio a lo largo. con otro cañón ligero que forma el Cuarteto Quartizine contra el barco pero no tiene ningún efecto sobre él. Anticipating an all-out battle, Steven calls Bill Dewey to help evacuate the town. To his surprise, he is told by the Gems to join his dad and the rest of the people, being the voice for them and protect them, just as his mother did.
Leaving the town, Steven hopes that Peridot will leave them alone once she sees what the Earthlings are like, but Greg has doubts. He then accidentally blurts out that he knew other Gems had invaded Earth before. Unable to hold in the truth any longer, he tells Steven that his mother, Rose Quartz, rebelled because of "something awful" her kind was doing to the planet. He goes on to say that many lives were lost in the battle, Gems and people alike, and, because of her shield, she was only able to save a handful of her closest friends and drive the rest of the invaders from Earth. Steven begs his dad to turn around so he can help the others and accidentally triggers the air bag system in the van, launching himself out with his bubble shield. Steven explains that the Gems need him because he has his mom's shield. Greg allows him to go, but tells him to be careful.
After making it back to the beach, Steven tells Lion to leave, as he'll have to be a son to Greg if something happens to him.
Greg drives over to the wreckage and hugs Steven in relief that he's okay. Steven tells Greg everything, also including the fact that Jasper thought Steven was his own mother, Rose Quartz. Greg begins to panic rushing back to his van, he tries to find some music to calm his nerves, but while trying to find his calming music CD accidentally ends up playing heavy metal music and panicking further. At the end of the episode, Greg, calmed down, arrives as Connie tells Steven that she still wants to be with him (being a part of his "universe"). They drive through Beach City, where the people are coming back, before taking Connie home.
As she approaches the Beach House to deliver mail, Barbara Miller recognizes Steven as Greg's son.
Steven takes a "Crying Breakfast Friends!" personality quiz and looks for Pearl and Greg, who are working on Greg's Van, so he can ask them to take the quiz too. Steven tries to convince them by describing the quiz, and giving examples; which just so happen to match up with Greg and Pearl's personalities. However, they both decline and continue working on the van.
Steven and Connie had been helping Greg organize his old albums in the back of his van. Glad at the chance to play some music, Greg puts Nietzche's Breakdown on. While listening to the song, Steven and Connie start dancing, resulting in them fusing into Stevonnie. Greg is surprised to learn they can fuse, so Steven and Connie become suspicious. Greg then launches into a story about his experience with fusion.
After the two sit down in the van, he puts in an old VCR which shows him singing a duet with Rose Quartz. Greg and Rose continue singing until Pearl suddenly walks up and whispers something in Rose's ear. They start dancing and Pearl fuses with Rose, in an effort to one-up Greg, into Rainbow Quartz who dances for the remainder of the song and unfuses. Rose tells an amazed Greg that Pearl told her to fuse so his video featured "a little something extra".After Rose warps off, Pearl spitefully tells Greg that he is just a phase and that Rose only likes him for his novelty as a human being. When Greg objects to this, she explains the concept of fusion; because he is not a Gem, he is not able to fuse. Pearl boasts that fusion is the ultimate connection between Gems, and emphasizes that Greg is nothing but a human. Greg asks how she knows humans cannot fuse, and when she cannot reply, he vows to fuse with Rose.
Greg practices dancing like Pearl did, using the video he took, but Garnet and Amethyst interrupt. He asks them for help. Garnet explains to him that in order to really fuse, he would have to have a gem at the center of his being, a body made of light, and a partner he's willing to trust with that light. Garnet tells him that she thinks he can do it, but he has to dance his way, not like Pearl.Greg waits for Rose by his van,nervous. When she arrives, they start dancing. They continue dancing until Greg steps up to her height using various boxes and kisses her. He then exclaims dejectedly that they did not fuse and Rose starts laughing, telling him that he cannot fuse because he is human. He replies that that is the problem, and he has enjoyed the past few months, but he is worried about the future. He then asks if she respects him, which she laughs off. Greg gets angry and asks her to talk to him like a real person. Rose is at a loss for words, and explains how she is not a real person, thinking that he already understood that. Greg realizes that Rose is an alien, proceeding to laugh and cry.
Rose then asks why he is laughing, and then why he is crying. Greg replies that he has concerns about how their relationship will work due to their vast number of differences. Rose asks what they should do, and Greg says he just wants to talk; they begin a conversation about humans and their feelings. Greg asks Rose if she's ever loved other humans, which she confirms. He then asks if she has ever been in love, and she asks Greg how she would know. He tells her that love feels like torture. Rose asks if their relationship is torture to him. He tells her that it is, and she apologizes. Greg says she should not apologize, which confuses Rose. She laughs and says that at least they have one thing in common: they're both confused. They continue dancing.
Back in the van, Connie asks Greg if they were ever able to fuse, and he says no, but that it was more important that they talk to each other. He then says interaction between humans and Gems is still new, and that Steven and Connie will have to work with it. He also tells Connie that if she needs another human to talk to, he's there.
In Pearl's dream, she tells Rose to forget about Greg and travel the galaxy with her. Rose turns into Greg, and he thanks her for fixing his van.
Greg asks the Crystal Gems if they want to go on a road trip. He informs them he had met a guy on the internet who's selling cheap car wash brushes and that he needs to travel to the Keystone state to pick them up. Steven gets excited at the prospect of staying in a hotel and getting room service. Greg corrects him, stating that the motel they're going to will instead have free ice, a pool, and be right next to the best diner in the world. Garnet decides to come along.
After a few hours of driving, they reach the Keystone Motel. They check into their room before Greg leaves to pick up the car wash brushes. He asks if Garnet could hold down the fort and to call the police if he's not back in an hour. Later, Greg returns to the motel with his brushes and pizza. He discovers that Garnet has unfused. As Greg and Steven prepare to eat dinner, Steven asks why Ruby and Sapphire cannot make up. Greg reassures Steven that everything will be better in the morning when they go to the best diner in the world.
The next morning, Greg, Steven, Ruby, and Sapphire are sitting inside The Best Diner in the World. A waitress brings them their breakfast. While Greg and Steven are eating, Ruby and Sapphire begin to argue. Eventually Ruby flips over the table ruining their breakfast. Greg starts to reassure Steven who then angrily walks out the diner. Ruby and Sapphire quickly follow him. As they reconcile outside, Greg pays for breakfast and the damage to the booth. They head back to the Beach House after picking up some free ice. Once home, Steven asks if they could go back. Greg replies that they might one day, but not to the same diner.
Amethyst explains to Steven that she and Vidalia used to hang out with Greg, but they eventually started hanging out together without him. Vidalia also states that Steven looks just like Greg, which is good because he used to be hot.
Steven tells Peridot that he learned about rain and clouds from Greg. He also described his status as a half-Gem as "The Ballad of Rose and Greg".
Greg and the Crystal Gems are holding a birthday party for Steven. Greg shows Steven and Connie an album of photos taken on Steven's previous birthdays. He notes that Steven has not physically changed since his eighth birthday. Connie becomes concerned with this and asks Greg to let her show him how to use a defibrillator as an excuse to talk to him in private. Greg tells Connie that he and the Gems really are not sure about whether or not Steven will age normally, as there has never been anything like Steven, and that they'll have to wait and see. Greg gives Steven his birthday suit and closes Steven in the barn to prepare a surprise for him.
That evening, Greg and Amethyst witness Steven unshifting from his older form and becomes concerned with what Steven is doing. Steven rebuts Greg and Amethyst's concern over the amount of time Steven has spent shapeshifted by saying that they do not know for sure because he is half human, revealing to Greg that he overheard the conversation with Connie earlier. This upsets Greg, as he did not mean to hurt Steven. After Steven turns into an infant due to the strain on his body, Greg takes Steven from the Gems, stating that this is his job as a father. He then takes Steven on a ride in his van with Connie in order to help Steven calm down. When Steven recovers, Greg is surprised to see that Steven has now grown a facial hair.
Greg appears in a flashback, working on repairing a hole in the roof of the barn. Peridot pushes him off of the roof of the barn in order to see if all earth creatures are able to fly, and he is caught by Garnet. He forgives Peridot for pushing him off of the roof after Garnet tells him that Peridot is still learning about the earth and did not know any better.
Greg helps pack up the van with various items for the Gems, before leaving with them to return to Beach City.
Greg chats with Steven about business at the carwash being slow, despite offering free waxing. Steven assures him that business will pick up eventually, when a large bus drives up, driven by Marty. Marty tells Greg that the music business has been a lot nicer to him than it had been to Greg, noticing that Greg now works at a carwash. He takes out an envelope to give Greg, but is interrupted by Sour Cream.
After Marty has ruined Sour Cream's show with Guacola, Greg tells Yellowtail that he should stick around, as Sour Cream needs him. Marty then walks over to Greg and hands him the envelope, before leaving. Greg then tells Steven that Sour Cream does not need Marty in order to do well in the music business, and that the money is not what is important about music. He then opens the envelope, which contains a check for 10 million dollars.
Greg shows Steven and Pearl the Pepe's Burgers commercial in which Marty sings to the tune of "Comet". He explains that Marty had sold his song as a burger jingle and that he's now rich. Greg and Steven sing "Don't Cost Nothing", wondering what to do with the money. They begin to sing another "Empire City", where Greg gets the idea to take a trip to Empire City. While they sing, they run into the Beach House to pack Steven's belongings for the trip. Steven ends the song by suggesting they bring Pearl too. Greg and Pearl express their concerns but Steven assures them that it'll be great.
In Empire City, Greg, Steven, and Pearl enter a hotel called Le Hotel. With the employees of the hotel, they sing "Mr. Greg", which is about Greg's wealth and the great time they're having. When Greg asks Pearl to dance with him, she abruptly pulls away, ending the song. Later on, Greg and Steven are sleeping in their hotel room. Pearl enters their room and begins to sing "It's Over Isn't It" in which she expresses her struggle over the absence of Rose and the fact that Greg had been chosen over her. During the song Greg and Steven wake up, which Pearl discovers as she finishes. Greg dejectedly leaves the room, believing that nothing will improve his relationship with Pearl. Steven brings Pearl and Greg together and through "Both of You", gets them to talk about their feelings, Rose, and to eventually reconcile. They dance together as Steven continues singing. When they finish, a hotel employee gives Greg the bill. Pearl, Greg, and Steven sing a reprise of the first song, as they leave the hotel and Empire City.
Steven pretends to start a car at It's a Wash, pretending to drive it when Connie knocks on the car window to get his attention. Steven rolls down the window, and greets Connie, and thanks his dad for letting him practice his driving in the car, but thinks that it might be too small to live in. Greg says that the idea of the car was not to live in, but get a new car now that he is rich. Greg tells the kids details about the old car before, and before they were born. The kids then pick up sponges and help Greg clean his car.
Suddenly, a large, yellow car races toward It's A Wash, and brakes near them. The driver rolls down the window, revealing himself to be Kevin, who tells Greg to “give him a wash” before calling him an old man. Greg, however, listens to his request, running over to his tires and cleaning them. Kevin, who is on the phone, telling someone that he wants his socks pressed, tells Greg to go easy on the tires because his car has to look as beautiful as him.
Steven runs over and tells Kevin to back off, defending his dad from the name “grandpa.” Kevin eventually drives off, and Greg notices that he has “forgotten” to pay, but excuses this, considering that he is rich. Steven says that he hates Kevin, and Greg tells him to watch the word “hate,” it being a strong word. Steven says that it is a strong feeling too, Greg asks if the two know Kevin, and Connie explains the events of what happened when they formed Stevonnie the first time, and how he tried to get them to dance, and Steven calls him a creep. Greg gets mad at the word, but Steven points out that it has five letter, instead of four like the word “hate”. Greg says that if he is causing this much trouble, then there's no point to even think about him.
Steven takes Lapis, who is trying to cover her eyes with her water wings so she cannot see, to a boat as a surprise. Lapis is unsure of what she sees at first. Steven exclaims that they have a boat, but Greg corrects him by saying they rented a boat, so as to not go "overboard". Lapis asks who Greg is, and Greg introduces himself, though awkwardly mentioning that he is the guy whose leg she broke when trying to go back to Homeworld by using the Earth's oceans. Since Lapis is not familiar with handshaking, Greg just goes on to start the boat. Steven asks her what she thinks, but she does not know what to say. Steven persists with her coming on the boat with him. Lapis does not think she deserves it, to which Steven points out the small banner taped to the boat which reads "Lil' Lappy". The banner peels off to reveal the name "SS Misery". Lapis laughs and says she'll give it a try, just this once. Greg asks if everybody is ready and takes off, but rips off a piece of the dock as it is still tied to the boat. Greg says he's starting to think twice about sailing and offers for Lapis to take over. Lapis does not want to despite Steven's encouragement. Greg asks if she still wants to wear the hat but Lapis rejects again.
Steven, Greg, and Lapis do different activities, such as drinking orange juice and sunbathing on the deck, and they later see Greg fishing. Lapis offers to help and uses her powers to make a big water bubble filled with fish and Greg's rod still sticking in it. Steven says she is "super strong!" but Greg looks a little nervous and asks if they could just do it the old fashion way. Lapis gets a little embarrassed and drops the bubble, causing a strong wave that rocks the boat. Lapis asks how to do it the old fashioned way, and Greg explains it to her. Lapis asks why a fish would want to be on a hook and Greg explains that you have to bait it with something.
Greg demonstrates how to fish, however, a lot of time seems to pass as Lapis and Steven start to get visibly bored. Lapis asks when the fish part happens, and Greg just tells her that sometimes it is not just about the fish but the company you keep, to which his lure starts reeling. Greg gives Lapis the rod so she can try to reel it in. As she is reeling the fish in, it starts to pull her towards the edge, so Steven grabs her while Greg grabs Steven. Lapis goes to the edge and tries to see what got away while Greg mentions the rod will have to be paid for now. Greg compliments her on trying to get the "beast" and Steven reassures her about the lost fish.
Greg calls Steven back up to port and asks if he hears something. Greg states that something is throwing off the rutter and that the manual is not helping, to which Greg makes a pun about 'water crackers'. They hear something again along with the oncoming storm, and the engine explodes within the boat keeping the boat stranded. After Jasper is chased away, Steven is happy that she did it, but Greg comes out on the deck and is horrified to see the damage to the boat. Lapis carries him off of the boat, with Steven on her back. Greg says that it turned out that he "would be buying a boat after all".
Steven and Greg are working at the car wash and he is surprised they already had two customers at that day and says that it has not done that great since 15 years ago, when a 'mud-nado' struck. Steven is surprised that Greg had this job longer than he has been alive, and asks how Greg got the job in the first place. Greg starts to tell him but Steven interrupts him, gets the ukulele and tells Greg to sing him the story. Greg makes a remark about how all his flashbacks have always begun with a song, but begins to sing anyway.
A flashback compilation of Greg and Rose having fun is seen, until Greg realizes that he needs money. The song ends with him sitting on a road, singing for money. Seeing that he did not get much money, he goes to Vidalia's house. She lets him in and we see her trying to feed her baby, Sour Cream, with mushed-up carrots. Greg comes in and eats cereal. After some small talk with Vidalia, he goes into the living room and starts watching TV He watches a commercial for Li'l Butler on TV which makes him laugh so hard that he spills all the milk on his clothes and Vidalia's couch. The scene cuts to Vidalia and Greg in the washing room and Vidalia offering Greg to wash his shirt. Greg notices the shirt she is wearing, to which Vidalia responds that it is her uniform for her new job at the T-shirt shop, which starts today. Shortly after that, the telephone rings and Vidalia answers it. After the phone call is over she tells Greg that the babysitter who is supposed to look after Sour Cream canceled and asks him if he could do it to which he agrees. Later, Vidalia goes to work and tells Greg that she will destroy him if something happens to Sour Cream.
Greg takes baby Sour Cream to the beach and puts sunscreen and sunglasses on him. Suddenly, Rose comes floating by and is pleasantly surprised by the baby. She asks where the "mini-human" came from and if Greg made it. Greg introduces Sour Cream to Rose and the two show him how to have fun at the beach. The three lie at the beach and Rose tells Greg that she admires humans for the ability to grow up and inventing their own personality while Gems stay the way they are forever, having a reason to exist and knowing who they are going to be. Greg, inspired by her words, wants to write them down for a new song and asks Rose if she could watch over Sour Cream for a while.
When he comes back, he notices that they were both gone and begins to panic. Eventually, he runs into Beach City Funland and finds Rose. He then notices that Sour Cream is not there and says to Rose that he thought she was going to watch him. She then replies to him that she watched Sour Cream climb to the top of a Ferris Wheel. Greg panics and hurries himself to climb the wheel as fast as he can. He then notices how high he is, starts getting dizzy, and asks Rose if she could set the wheel in motion in-order for the two to get down. She pulls a lever which sets the wheel in motion but Greg says it's too fast for him. Rose tries slowing it down the Ferris wheel but breaks the lever which makes the wheel spin even faster. She then angrily smashes the control booth which makes the wheel spin incredibly fast. Rose then tries to hold on the wheel manually, thereby sending Greg and Sour Cream flying into the air. Rose rips off one of the gondolas, jumps into the sky, and catches them.
Rose makes sure Greg is alright just to relieve him about Sour Cream's safety. Greg tells Rose that she should not let Sour Cream do anything he wants. Rose then asks why it is okay for Greg to do everything he wants and he's fine, Greg replies that he is not a baby and does not need someone to help him. He then notices that he does need someone to help him and states that he is a "baby".
In the evening, Greg returns Sour Cream to Vidalia and thanks her for her support. He then strolls through Beach City, humming the melody of Let Me Drive My Van (into Your Heart). He eventually notices that It's a Wash is searching for new employees. The next day, Greg is seen at his first day of his job, singing a slightly modified version of Let Me Drive My Van (into Your Heart). The flashback ends and Gregs tells Steven that growing up is something important and something you have to decide to do.
While wearing a bald cap, Steven says that his dad told him he should expect this someday.
Greg invites Amethyst to a rock concert, much to her excitement. However, when he arrives, he tells Amethyst that he will not be able to go with her due to a previous request from Barb to play cards with her and Vidalia. Barb threatened to hold his mail if he did not, and according to him, she is not a "woman of empty threats". After Pearl offers to go with her and Steven, Greg offers them his Dondai Supremo, which Pearl thanks him for.
Greg arrives at the barn with the Gems, after Steven calls them over to deal with aa stranger at the Barn, who claimed that Peridot and Lapis hijacked their barn. Greg recognizes the man, and explains that he let them into the barn which outrages the man further. Steven asks who the man is, and Greg tells the group that he is his cousin, Andy. Andy, shocked to hear Steven is Greg's son, is baffled by these changes and gives Steven a big hug. He also asks Greg how he was never told about this, which Greg responds he couldn't tell him because he has not seen Andy in years. Andy mentions that it was Greg's fault for that since two decades ago, Greg drove away in his van. Andy tries to guess which one of the Gems were the wife, but Greg reveals that Rose is "no longer with us". Greg mentions how the Gems with him are like her family, which is what led to Greg offering the barn to them.
Andy argues that the barn is for the DeMayos instead, which led to Steven questioning what a "DeMayo" is. Greg reveals he and Steven are the "Universes" now, which infuriates Andy even more. Steven asks if Universe is not a real last name, but is told it is since Greg decided to have it changed. Steven mentions the longevity of their stay on the barn and how much it means to them as they spend time together here. Andy argues that his family did the same as well via tradition for many years. Steven proposes a traditional meal to eat together and have a good time so Andy will have to admit to the family. Steven hopes the proposal will go well, but Greg lets Steven know how Andy tends to be consistent with his traditions and does not change his mind often.
After the Gems harvest the crops and head to the store, Andy, Greg, Steven, and Amethyst are left to keep each other company as they work on the food for the feast. Greg asks how aunt Deb has been, which sparks annoyance in Andy since he cannot compress 20 years into one sentence. After the Gems return with their "gifts", Andy becomes so conscious of the situation, he gives up being angry and decides to sit down and eat. The feast begins, and since all tradition Andy is familiar with is thrown out the window, he decides to eat dessert before dinner by taking a slice of the wedding cake. He shows some manners, however, and passes it to Peridot, which causes the rest of the group to mimic Andy until it is handed back to him. Andy asks if they do not like cake, which Steven replies they do not need to eat, but notes Amethyst loves to. As their conversation goes on, Andy grows uncomfortable and leaves abruptly, renouncing his ownership of the barn, and Steven gives chase. Greg and Andy resolve themselves, glad to be back together again, after Steven manages to catch up with him and talk it out.
In the middle of a snowstorm, Steven tells his dad that he is glad that he is staying with them. Greg agrees, commenting that it is too cold to stay in his van during this blizzard. Steven says that he's never seen snow like this, and Garnet says that's not entirely true. When Steven asks what she's talking about, Pearl laughs about it, and says that it was fourteen years ago. Steven says that he's fourteen years, and Greg mentions that when it was snowing, Vidalia had gone out of town and let the two crash at her place.
As he is about to tell the story, Greg says that he already has a song for this one and begins to sing "I Could Never Be (Ready)" as a flashback montage of Greg with Steven plays. While settling down, he sees a photo of young Sour Cream, Vidalia, and Yellowtail and looks on sadly, noticeably missing Rose. The Gems knock on Vidalia's door, and Greg finds out they brought presents. When Greg says that it was nice for them to stop by, Pearl says that they're only stopping by to drop off the presents. Garnet hands her gift to Steven and When it's opened, there's a razor inside. Greg snatches it quickly, saying that he does not think he'll need it yet. Garnet replies that he will need it in the future. Amethyst hands her box to Steven, and when it is opened, there is a box of adult diapers. She says that he can just grow to fit them. She says that Steven can grow, but Greg does not think he can. Pearl says that maybe Steven can learn some things using her gift and hands Greg the gift, which is a dictionary. Greg mentions that maybe they could use it to look up the definition of a baby and that Steven cannot use any of this stuff.
Greg then pulls out his keys to the van, letting the Gems know that the only thing Baby Steven is interested in is jangling keys. Once the Gems realize that, Amethyst playfully shakes the keys above Steven's head, Pearl notes how captivated he is by them, and Garnet says that next time, they should give him a big box of keys to play with, and everyone laughs in agreement. As they laugh, Steven's gem starts to glow, surprising both Greg and the Gems. Amethyst believes that Rose is trying to shapeshift back into her old self, Pearl tries to communicate with Rose through her gem, and Garnet believes that Rose is trapped in a fusion and is trying to unfuse.
With no idea what to do, Greg heads into Vidalia's kitchen and grabs a parenting book to help them figure something out. When he returns to the living room, Greg notices that the Gems have taken off with Baby Steven. The Gems start up the van and drive off, with Greg chasing after them on foot. Greg, not far behind the Gems in the freezing cold, continues to follow the trail of tire tracks the van left in the snow, where he realizes that he'll never catch up with them on foot. He then notices two kids playing and sledding in the snow with a dog sitting next to them. Greg tries to put two and two together and believes he can ride through the snow on their sled pulled by the dog.
Later, Greg, being chased by the dog he tied to the sled, finally catches up with the Gems. Garnet lets him in the van, and Greg thanks them, but then remembers that the Gems took off in his van and stole Steven, and questions why. Garnet apologizes to him and tells him that they only did it because they thought they knew what Steven was, but they did not. Greg forgives them and tells them that he does not know what Steven is either, and he never glowed when he was a kid, to which Pearl informs that they never were kids. Steven starts to giggle again and Greg tells the Gems that he is not sure how they are going to figure it out, but they have a better chance if they do it together.
Back in the present, Steven claims that they were wrong about everything. Pearl reminds him that it was a really long time ago, Amethyst asks him to cut them some slack, Garnet informs him that they could not have known what to do, even her, and Greg tells him that he especially did not know. Steven informs them that they were wrong about growing and changing and that it does not come naturally to them, and to look where they are now. Steven knows that they will never stop missing Rose but believes she would have loved how they all turned out because he does, to which they all agree. Pearl then remembers the time a teenage girl tried to kidnap Steven, and Greg informs her that it was Steven's babysitter and that she was taking him to the park, and lets them know they really scared her when they threw a jungle gym at her, at which they all laugh.
Greg and Steven are in the van, watching a movie. Greg wakes up Steven from a brief dream, in which he remarks he was gonna let him sleep, until Steven started crying, which was "less cute." Steven mentions he did not know why he was crying, because his dream was not sad and Greg decides to take him home. Greg summarizes the movie's ending to Steven as they walk up the steps, and before he leaves, Steven asks Greg if Rose had ever talked to him about Pink Diamond. Greg mentions that there were some things that Rose did not like talking about, and he never pressed her about details. Steven asks why, and Greg tells him that they talked about a lot of important stuff, such as feelings. He says they both made a bunch of mistakes when they were young, and she felt that she had to tell him everything, but he told her the past was the past. Greg also told her who she was in the past did not matter, but what mattered was who she was in the present: an incredible, loving, being. Steven feels better and tells him goodnight.
After Steven's argument with Garnet and the Gems, he wakes Greg up from the van and tells him about the palanquin in his dream and book. Greg takes the book, and says he knows someone who could take them to where he wanted. Later, they ride in Andy's plane, who they thank for taking them to Korea, where the palanquin was. Steven mentions that this was a serious mission and there was no time for fun, but Greg asks if there was a little time for fun, which Steven considers. In Korea, the two explore the surroundings of the city, eating some cuisine, and shopping for a bit around the country.
Eventually, they get on a bus that takes them to the Korean Peninsula, and Greg mentions its beauty. Steven insists they continue going and they appear in front of a fenced area. Steven convinces Greg to help him jump over, despite his protests, and they head over to a field. They come across a blue palanquin, but Steven mentions the one he saw was pink and broken down. Suddenly, behind some bushes they can hear a voice express her sorrow and apologize to Pink Diamond, kneeling by her former palanquin with her Pearl. She wonders what she would think now, as this was "her planet."
Steven realizes it is Blue Diamond, and they duck when Blue Pearl heads over, thinking she heard someone. Greg assures he can handle this, and makes himself known to Blue Pearl, and introduces himself to Blue Diamond, calling her "Your Highness." Blue Diamond tells him to come over, who says that Earth is a strange planet, as she assumes Greg and all other humans live in the wild. She also mentions that the location they are at is where Pink Diamond was broken. Greg asks if they were close, and sympathizes, apologizing. He says he knows how hard it is to move on when you lose someone to her surprise. He says he lost someone important to him too; he misses her and thinks about her every day, but she is never coming back, and that feeling was so hard to be okay with.
Blue Diamond is surprised a human being is capable of understanding how she feels, and it is a shame because there is a geo-weapon ready to emerge soon and destroy the Earth, but she realizes Greg does not deserve it. She says she is not supposed to be here, but she is glad she is one last time because she can save one last piece of her legacy. She grabs Greg and summons her ship. Steven watches in shock as Greg struggles in her grip and pleads to let him go. Blue Diamond goes into her palanquin and it floats up, entering the palm of her ship. The ship blasts off, leaving Steven behind as it heads into space.
Steven and Garnet return to the Beach House, revealing the Amethyst and Pearl that Greg has been kidnapped. While confused, Pearl deduces that Blue Diamond must have taken him to Pink Diamond's Zoo, where humans used to be held captive. They decide to head out to bring him back.
In the Roaming Eye, Pearl calculates that they'll be able to make it to the 70 years, in time for Greg's 110th birthday. Steven counters that Greg isn't healthy enough to live that long. Throughout their journey, Steven constantly pushes the Gems and the Roaming Eye to speed up. Accidentally disabling the ship's calibration, Steven cries as the Gems' forms lag behind the ship, wanting his dad there for him. After the calibration is fixed, Garnet stops Steven from blaming himself by saying Blue Diamond was the one to kidnap Greg. Seeing the zoo, Steven says that he hopes he'll be able to see his dad soon.
The Crystal Gems continue their rescue mission for Greg. Inside the facility, Steven eventually reaches the containment area and finds Greg among its inhabitants.
Steven is reunited with his dad inside Pink Diamond's Zoo. He informs Greg of the Crystal Gems' mission to rescue him and expresses concern over his dad's well-being since his abduction by Blue Diamond. Greg reassures his son, stating that the human inhabitants of the zoo have treated him well since his arrival. They are promptly joined by said people, whom Greg explains are the descendants of humans brought to the zoo by Gems thousands of years ago. After being introduced to the Zoomans, Steven suggests to Greg they locate the containment area's entrance door and escape. Greg agrees, but advises they do so after the Zoomans' routine, a daily schedule directed by a voice emitted from the earrings worn by all Zoomans. Steven reluctantly joins Greg and the Zoomans in their activities such as eating, playing around, and bathing. Over the course of the routine, Steven grows perturbed by the Zoomans' happiness despite being held captive by Gems. He expresses this to Greg, who reasons that the Zoomans are not aware of their captivity, their utopian society keeping them in a constant state of ignorance and bliss.
During the designated sleeping period, Steven and Greg begin searching for the exit. They eventually find the door, and Steven attempts to break it down. The noise draws the attention of two Zoomans, Wy-Six and Jay-Ten. Steven explains to them their intentions, prompting Jay-Ten to reveal that a Gem once came into the zoo to help someone who was hurt. Steven determines someone needs to get hurt for the door to open; he tells Greg to punch him. Not wanting to hurt his son, Greg suggests Steven strike him instead. Steven punches Greg, but the door does not open. Before they can try something else, the voice announces the commencement of the "choosening". Wy-Six and Jay-Ten lead Greg and Steven to a clearing where a group of Zoomans are standing in a circle. Steven is asked to wait aside while Greg is brought into the circle alongside Wy-Six and Jay-Ten.
As the voice selects two of the Zoomans to step into the center of the circle, Greg realizes with a start that the choosening is a matchmaking ritual and begins to panic. Against Steven's reassurance that he probably will not be "choosened", Greg is selected to step into the center with Jay-Ten. Greg refuses and explains to the confused Zoomans that people make their own decisions about their relationships back on Earth. This prompts all the Zoomans to choose Greg as their romantic partner. Greg politely declines them, causing all the Zoomans to begin crying. Unfamiliar with the feeling of sorrow, the Zoomans begin chasing Greg and Steven, asking for their pain to be taken away. The two manage to hide in a bush when the entrance door opens and amethyst guards enter. As the guards attempt to calm down the Zoomans, Greg and Steven run for the door but are caught by a guard.
An Amethyst guard brings Steven and Greg into the guards' quarters where they are alarmed to discover that Amethyst has also been captured. Their apprehension turns to surprise as an amused Amethyst reveals that it was a prank, explaining to them that the quartz guards are all from Earth. Holly Blue Agate suddenly enters the quarters, informing the guards that Blue Diamond has returned and ordering them to their stations. As the guards file out, Greg and Steven slip out with them. They flee the area and find themselves in a massive room filled with bubbled gemstones. The two quickly hide as they are joined by Blue and Yellow Diamond and their Pearls. As the Homeworld Gems converse, Steven and Greg sneak around the room, making their way to the exit.
Just before they reach the door, Holly Blue, Sapphire, and Ruby enter. After a conversation with the Diamonds, the group leaves and Steven and Greg follow them. Outside in the hallway, Steven, Greg, and the Crystal Gems are reunited. They proceed to follow Holly Blue to the hangar while ensuring the quartz Gem does not see Steven and Greg. As they begin boarding their Roaming Eye however, Holly Blue spots the two humans. She attempts to capture them but is quickly defeated by the Crystal Gems. With everyone safely aboard the Roaming Eye, the Crystal Gems fly out of the zoo and begin their journey home.
Greg and the Crystal Gems arrive back on Earth where they are greeted by Connie. She explains to them that during her supervision of Beach City with Peridot and Lapis, there were some mishaps at the car wash. The group heads over and finds the building in impeccable condition, save for the missing sign. They are then presented with a new sign by Peridot and Lapis, which Greg finds better than the previous one.
Greg and the Gems arrive at the Beach House with pizza for Steven.
Greg is playing music on a hill near Beach City when Steven finds him. After briefly explaining his new "jamming hill", he asks if Steven is okay, noticing that his son appears disappointed. To his surprise, Steven shows him a VHS tape he had put together with Rose. They watch the video on Greg's TV and Steven discovers that it is similar to the one he had found inside Lion, except Rose addresses someone named "Nora" instead of Steven. Steven eventually stops the video and asks his dad about "Nora", which Greg reveals as the name he and Rose had chosen if Steven had been a girl. This makes Steven upset, disappointed the video tape did not help him determine what Rose had wanted him to be in life.
Greg comforts his son, explaining that Rose was excited about the many possibilities her child would explore in life, and thus had wanted Steven to be himself. After they finish watching the video, Steven embraces his dad, content that his parents had simply wanted him to be their child.
Steven wants to help Aquamarine, as he believes she's looking for her dad. He mentions that he knows how hard it is to have your dad taken away, referencing the events of "Steven's Dream".
Aquamarine reveals the reason she's been looking for "My Dad" is because she's working off a list Peridot made after "Marble Madness", which referenced Steven's list of humans. In this list, he used Greg as an example of a human, referring to him as his dad.
The Crystal Gems, Greg, and Connie warp into the Beach House and are surprised to find Steven returned from Homeworld. The group shares a joyful reunion.
Greg is seen watching Steven nervously out the window along with the other Crystal Gems (Whom are also worried about letting him out of their sight again) as he walks Connie home.
Greg accidentally tangles himself in some hoses, and it takes Greg several attempts to get Steven's attention and he eventually does get free, attempting to calm his son down to on avail. Later, Greg, alongside the Gems, takes Steven out on a vacation to help him relax. During the vacation, Greg barbecues up some dinner, and when he notices Steven obsessing over his phone, he urges Amethyst and Garnet separately to talk to him.
The next day, Greg talks to the Gems, saying that he doesn't know anything about Homeworld or its society so they have to put it into context. After Steven breaks down into tears and runs away, Greg promptly pursues Steven with renewed confidence; unlike the Gems, he knows how to deal with problems of the mundane Earth variety.
Greg finds Steven hiding away, and proceeds to talk with him, playing the fool in order to lower Steven's emotional barriers. Greg assures Steven that he's not angry; he does, however, admit that Steven's rash decision to turn himself in to Homeworld authorities was a rather harrowing experience for him, and he suspects that Connie is in the same boat. Greg admits that he dragged Steven to the Cool Ranch for the weekend because that was his way of emotionally dealing with the aftermath; he suspects that Connie's way of dealing with it is to keep her distance from Steven for the time being. Now Steven feels foolish because he had been sending a series of texts that made him seem overly clingy, and that Connie has been reading them all. Then Greg points out that the Cool Ranch has no cell service.
Greg and the Gems come together to drive Steven somewhere where there is cell service. However, Steven becomes depressed once again, realizing that Connie had not reached out to him. Greg comforts Steven alongside the Gems.
Steven shows Greg a recording of Sadie Killer and the Suspects performing a song, which causes him to ask to see them in person. Greg loves their show and begins giving them tips on how to launch their career as a band. Steven suggests that Greg be their manager, and he decides to take the job.
Greg reaches out to an old friend of his, Sunshine Justice, who books Sadie Killer and the Suspects a show in Empire City. He discusses options for the show with the band, assuring them that he'll cover the cost of whatever they want to do. At the car wash, Greg tries to tell Sadie to allow her mother to support her interests. He states that his parents weren't supportive of his own passion for music, and it's nice for him to see Barb do just the opposite.
Greg drives Steven, Sadie, Buck, Jenny, and Sour Cream to the venue in Empire City, where he and Steven stay backstage as the band performed for the audience. After the show, Greg greets Sunshine Justice, who tells him the band has talent. After Sadie asks him if they can play a show in Beach City, Greg tells her he can get it done.
Steven recounts events in Beach City in a letter he writes to Lars. He mentions that, in a town meeting at Fish Stew Pizza, Greg offered to buy a telescope that a lookout could use to see incoming Homeworld Gems ahead of time. Ronaldo is later seen looking through this telescope.
Steven states that, since Greg is rich, he's decided to learn tennis. He's seen playing with Garnet, who's using her shapeshifting to make her volley easier. At the end of the episode, Greg is seen waiting in line at the Big Donut.
Steven claims that Ronaldo has found something weird everyday since Greg bought the telescope.
Jenny mentions that Greg gave her a big tip, as she delivered pizza to him and Ruby at Brooding Hill, outside of Fish Stew Pizza's delivery range. She saw him comforting Ruby.
Greg tells Steven and Amethyst that Ruby told him about Rose being Pink Diamond and that he's fine with it, joking that he, similarly, never told Rose that "Mr. Universe" used to be Gregory DeMayo. After Ruby decides to be her own Gem, Greg tells Steven that being separate from Sapphire might be what Ruby needs and that if Ruby and Sapphire being together is not what Ruby wants, then it is not what Garnet wants. Going on the road, Greg drives them to an outdoor area. Greg goes to sleep with Amethyst and Steven that night.
Greg helps Steven make a Together Breakfast wedding cake for the wedding. He is the guitar player for the wedding, playing "Here Comes the Bride" as Ruby walks down the aisle. At the reception, Greg is seen chatting with Andy, Mr. Fryman, Kofi, and Yellowtail.
When Yellow and Blue Diamond arrive, Steven becomes fearful that the Cluster will be broken out of its bubble. As he struggles to sleep to psychically communicate with it, Greg is able to calm Steven enough for him to sleep by playing a few notes of his guitar. Seeing Blue Diamond on the beach, Greg joked about trying "the Old Universe Charm". After being told not to, he stays inside the house. When the fight nearly destroys the Beach House, Greg emerges unharmed with Cat Steven. He is there when Steven wakes up after he gets through the Diamonds.
Greg says his goodbye to Steven as he and the Gems (aside from Bismuth, Lapis and Peridot) head to Homeworld. He asks Garnet if things will be fine. He then cheers Steven on as he takes off in Pink's ship.
Greg is sitting, tuning his guitar when Lion shows up with Steven (who's controlling a Watermelon Steven) and Greg takes him to Bismuth (who's busy repairing the house). Steven tries acting out what has happened on Homeworld, then attempts to draw a picture, but his friends only understand him when he writes a message asking for help. As Steven goes back to sleep to leave his watermelon body behind, Greg gives him a thumbs-up, indicating that he, Bismuth, and Lion have received the message.
Greg is attending a Sadie Killer and the Suspects concert when the Diamond Mech arrives back on Earth, with Greg calling out Steven's name as he embraces his son. He is later seen on the beach with the rest of the Gems, leaning against Lion.
Steven finds Greg on the beach, teaching Pearl how to play the bass out of the back of his van. Greg and Pearl argue over the pronunciation of "bass", but neither of them have any malice towards the other. Steven assures Greg that he'll see him at the concert later that night.
Greg is seen while Amethyst sings "Happily Ever After", where he is represented as a part of her family.
After Spinel poofs the Crystal Gems, Steven calls Greg to the Beach House. Greg comforts his son, saying the Gems will be back soon and they'll figure out his powers. As Pearl begins to reform, her Gemstone asks him to identify himself. He states, "Um, Greg Universe", which causes the rejuvenated Pearl to believe him to be her master, addressing him as her Um Greg Universe. Greg and Steven panic as the rest of the Gems reform, confused as to why they seem to be unable to remember their lives before Spinel's attack.
Steven leaves Pearl and Amethyst with Greg while he goes to Little Homeworld to get help from Bismuth, Lapis, and Peridot. During this time, Greg loses track of Amethyst while he was wrestling his laundry away from Pearl. He drives to Little Homeworld with Pearl, hoping Steven may have seen Amethyst. He also has to stop Pearl from washing his van, as he owns a car wash.
Steven catches up with Greg, Pearl, and Garnet at the U-Stor, where they're gathering supplies for the Sadie Killer and the Suspects show that night. Pearl cites her employment as Greg's servant for being unable to help Amethyst and Steven. Meanwhile, Greg is on the phone with Mayor Nanefua, who has told him that citizens are being evacuated to the abandoned warehouse. Since this is where the concert is being held, Greg decides to drop the cover charge and offer 30% off merch in an effort to draw people to the warehouse.
Steven, Amethyst, and Greg decide to use the rock show as a way to inspire rebellion in Pearl, which may cause her to remember her former self. Greg tries to get her to engage with the show, but Pearl keeps focusing on him rather than the lyrics to "Disobedient". Greg gives Amethyst permission to shapeshift into Rose Quartz during the song, causing him great pain but once again failing to grab Pearl's attention. Frustrated, Greg asks Pearl what it will take for her to stop serving him, to which she states she will serve him as long as he exists.
This inspires Steven, who suggests that Pearl's missing piece may be that Rose Quartz disappeared. Greg and Steven get on stage together, dancing and fusing into Steg. With Steg's help, Pearl is able to remember her independence and reverts to her formal self. With new information from Pearl, Steven decides to go find Spinel to fix the injector. Greg tries to stop him, as Steven is weakened from the fusion, but Lion takes him away.
At the Beach House, Greg exits the bathroom to find the Crystal Gems (minus Garnet) all pointing their weapons at Spinel, who has been restored to her former self. Startled, they all turn around to threaten him instead. Greg, fearful, says that he'll wash his hands.
Greg helps the Crystal Gems evacuate Beach City. He's able to load Barb, Sadie, and another citizen into his van before his arm is hit by the bio-poison. Though he's injured, Greg drives off towards Little Homeworld, stopping for a moment to stare at Steven scaling the injector.
Greg is driven by Pearl back into town to find Steven, eventually encountering him among the rubble. With his restored powers, Steven is able to heal Greg's arm. He and the Gems watch as Steven begins to heal the ground, and Garnet wraps one of her arms around him after the Diamonds leave with Spinel. They return to Little Homeworld to reunite with the rest of the Crystal Gems.
Greg is seen helping repair Beach City, cutting boards as Pearl directs construction. He participates in the ending number "Finale", handing Steven a bouquet.
Greg and Amethyst enter the Beach House to find Steven struggling with the placement of Rose Quartz's portrait. Noticing the sudden change in lighting, the three exit to find that Pink Diamond's zoo has suddenly appeared in the sky. While Greg is initially there as Steven begins communication through his control panel, he leaves as the Zoomans react coldly to his presence. They state that anyone is welcome in the zoo as long as they aren't Greg.
Concerned by the zoo's extended presence, Greg returns to the Beach House to ask Steven how long the Zoomans will be around. He begins to recount a story of several of his exes showing up at once, but it cut off when he notices three Rose Quartz guests. Greg states that he can feel the rest of his hair falling out. Steven asks if Greg wants to join them for dinner, to which he shouts "Nope!" and quickly exits the Beach House.
Greg is brushing his hair in the bathroom as Steven and the Gems enter. As Steven expresses discomfort over having Bluebird Azurite around, Greg assures him that it's okay if he doesn't want to be near her.
Later, Steven becomes fearful as he hears his father screaming. However, it turns out Greg is just watching horror movies in his van with Bluebird, who enjoys them. Steven decides to start trusting Bluebird more, leaving the two to watch movies together.
The next morning, Steven exits the bathroom to find that Greg's van has been warped into the Beach House. He hears his father screaming outside, and at first assumes that Greg and Bluebird are watching movies again. Hearing Greg beg for help, though, causes Steven to exit the Beach House, finding Bluebird on the roof dangling Greg by his leg. She throws him onto the roof, defusing back into her components: Aquamarine and "Eyeball". Aquamarine holds Greg by the hair and "Eyeball" threatens him with her knife.
Taking matters into his own hands, Greg grabs the knife from "Eyeball" and uses it to cut his hair off. Steven catches his father, who crawls away to grab his cut locks. After Steven and the Gems fight Aquamarine and "Eyeball" off, Steven joins Greg at the shore. He places his hair in the water, watching as it drifts away.
After Steven states he doesn't know how to interact with humans, Bismuth counters with the fact that he gets along well with Connie and Greg. Steven says that Greg doesn't count because he's his dad.
Feeling depressed, Steven calls his father, who is on tour with Sadie and Shep as their manager. Steven tells Greg he's happy he's coming home soon, as he wants to talk to him about recent events. Distracted by something Sadie and Shep do, Greg doesn't hear him, revealing that the tour has been extended. He thanks Steven for suggesting he be a manager, as he's found he loves the job. As they're about to go into a tunnel, Greg says he has to hang up. He asks Steven if he wants to call back later, but Steven assures him that he's fine.
After getting Steven's appointment set up with her mother, Connie calls Greg to tell him that Steven is at the hospital due to strange swelling. When Greg makes it to the hospital, he finds that Steven has grown to the size of the room. Connie and Dr. Maheswaran leave Greg and Steven to talk.
Greg listens to his son talk about what's been bothering him. He's sympathetic as he hears that Steven proposed to Connie and was rejected and scared to hear about the trauma that he's gone through in the past. Greg hugs Steven's finger, assuring him that he'll be there for him. Steven reverts to his regular size, saying he wants to go home.
Back at the Beach House, Greg hands Steven a cup of tea as he listens to him explain the proposal. He tells Steven that it's okay to make mistakes while figuring yourself out, and that he'll support him no matter what he ends up doing. When Steven becomes worried that Greg abandoned the tour, Greg assures him that he doesn't need to worry.
To comfort Steven, Greg prepares him a bowl of ice cream with a piece of pie. He assures his son that it's okay he doesn't himself figured out yet. Greg shares that he didn't get to listen to good music until he was sixteen and that his most formative moments were eating sandwiches outside Delmarva house. Inspired by his own past, Greg decides to take Steven out on the road to discover himself.
The two set out in the van, stopping at various rest stops on their journey. As they drive through Greg's old neighborhood, Steven is excited to hear about where his dad first played music. After Steven asks how he became Mr. Universe, he decides to show him.
Greg pulls up to a certain house, refusing to answer Steven's questions as he hops the fence. He's concerned as Greg climbs in through the second story window, attempting to dissuade him the whole time. Greg begins rummaging though the boxes in the room. Searching for paper to write an apology note for the homeowners, Steven discovers the unopened letters Greg sent to the residents, Mr. and Mrs. DeMayo.
Shocked, Steven runs back upstairs to confront his father. Greg confirms that this was his childhood home, prompting Steven to start looking through the boxes with him. He finds Greg's handprint, his baby shoes, and a wrestling trophy, at which Greg reveals he was forced into it. Steven takes a picture of Greg with braces from on of his yearbooks. He finds Greg's graduation photo, Greg stating he was forced to cut his hair before it.
Remembering he hid his interest in music from his parents, Greg looks inside the vents, finding an old box. He allows Steven to drive as he looks through the box, as it's his journey of discovery. From the box, Greg pulls out an album by Kerry Moonbeam. He inserts the disc and plays the song "Mr. Universe".
As Greg sings along to the song, Steven becomes worried. He confronts his father, and Greg confirms that this song was the inspiration for their last name. He explains how "Mr. Universe" freed him and helped him learn how to dream. Greg claims that he left his family and never looked back, and a couple years later he met Rose Quartz.
He starts to play the song again, but Steven stops him. He tells his dad that he wanted a life like what Greg had, but Greg rebukes him, saying he was never able to do anything he liked growing up. Steven begins to yell, saying he wanted a more normal life with school and visits to the doctor. Greg counters that Steven's a Gem and is therefore different than other kids. Steven shouts that his problem is that he's a Universe, yanking the steering wheel from the van and accidentally crashing it.
Greg wakes Steven up on the side of the road. He tells Steven that he's proud of him, since he wasn't able to say anything like that to his father. As Greg talks about getting the van fixed and ice cream, Steven deletes the photo he took of Greg's yearbook picture.
Greg is seen with Bismuth on the beach as they assess the damage done to the van.
Greg, Connie, and the Gems all confront Steven over what's bothering him. Greg explains that they'll support Steven in whatever makes him happy, but he can tell them if something is wrong. Steven continues to dismiss them, eventually beginning to rant about all the recent things he's done wrong. Steven mentions his argument with Greg, causing everyone to look at him. Greg shrugs in response. He's shocked to hear that Steven shattered Jasper, which leads to him witnessing Steven's transformation.
Bismuth, Peridot, and Lapis arrive at the Beach House to find everyone attempting to talk to Steven, who's transformed into a huge monster. Greg tries to tell Steven to take deep breaths, but he doesn't seem to hear him.
After Steven is contained in the ocean, Greg is caught off guard by the arrival of Spinel and the Diamonds. He is knocked over when Steven's roar pushes everyone back. As everyone regains their footing, Amethyst tries to convince Greg to leave in case he gets hurt. Greg refuses, stating that he's run away whenever Gem stuff happened in the past, and that Steven's right to be angry because he couldn't protect him. Blue Diamond claims that Greg wasn't able to protect him from them.
Connie and Lion arrive back on the beach, chastising everyone for making Steven's hurt about themselves. She says that they all need to be there for him. This inspires Garnet, who's able to come up with a plan to help Steven. Blue Diamond makes a cloud for Greg, Pearl, and Amethyst to ride on towards Steven, everyone joining together to hug him. Greg tells Steven that he'll be there for him and make sure he gets whatever he needs.
Steven, after reverting to his regular form, wakes up on the Cluster's hand to find all of his family smiling at him.
Greg helps Steven clear out his room at the Beach House in preparation for his trip. Steven explains to Greg that he's bothered that the Gems don't seem upset that he's leaving, and Greg posits that they may just be trying to be strong for him. He tells Steven that he's allowed to feel petty about it.
Steven reveals his gift for Greg: his room. He hangs up a Kerry Moonbeam poster and tells Greg that he wants him to move in. Though Greg is unsure, Steven tells him to lay down on the bed, and the comfort is enough to convince him. Greg states that Steven leaving and him settling down makes karmic sense.
Greg, Connie, and the Gems gather on the beach to see Steven off. Greg hugs his son, telling him he'll miss him but that he's proud. After Steven confronts the Gems, Greg cries as he gets in the Dondai to leave again.
