Correct me if I'm wrong here, Johnny. But it kinda seems like [Patrick's parents] didn't know their son is in a relationship with David.
Roland Schitt to Johnny Rose, regarding Patrick's parents not knowing of his relationship with David.[src]

"Meet the Parents" is the eleventh episode in the fifth season of Schitt's Creek. It is the sixty-third episode overall.

Plot Summary

It's Patrick's birthday. Despite hating them himself, David is throwing Patrick a surprise party as Patrick has always wanted but has never had one. One bigger surprise is that David has invited Patrick's parents. The day of the party, David learns some associated pieces of information which may not only affect how the party comes off, but his and Patrick's relationship altogether. Without ruining the surprise, David has to figure out how to deal with the information. Meanwhile, Alexis, without previously telling her, has arranged for Moira to appear at Soap Expo, a soap opera fan convention. Moira balks at the idea, having previously resisted appearing at any such event feeling it beneath her. And beyond the need to raise some money to overcome the debt associated with putting on Cabaret, Moira may have a change of heart when she meets an old soap opera colleague, Gloria Gregson, and learns about her recent life.
