Jim Egan, Portrayed by James Garner (2003–2005), Jim was in the Korean War and looks out for his family. He often sneaks away and "takes care" of his smoking habit. He is now divorced and used to live in Florida but now lives in his daughter's basement and often used to try to beat C.J. with his cane. He once sent C.J. to Canada to buy acetylsalicylic acid for him. When C.J. discovers this is just Aspirin, Jim explains, "C.J., the pain in my hip is still here. But now the pain in my ass is in Canada!" He is now proud of C.J.'s success as a teacher. When C.J.'s biological father comes to visit his son, Jim feels out of place and angry because he prepared a car for C.J. after he becomes a full-fledged teacher but then Mr. Barnes gives C.J. a sports car.
