Andy Botwin. He is a man of many things. He first appears on episode 4 Called "Fashion Of The Christ", where he is first seen in the kitchen doing one of his favorite things-cooking. Aparently he had broken in one of the windows which shows his classsic, do whatever he wants attitude. The reason the family first sees him is because the fire alarm went off from smoke in the kitchen. Soon after, he brings silas, shane, and even nancy gifts from his life on the road. You see, andy is a traveler, and a nomad who has the most crazy stories by anyone. He has been through many things in his life, even though he is only in his mid 30's.
Andy prepares food for porn stars when they shoot near Agrestic. He gets a part in a new movie called Foot Fuckers as a Package deliever, a waiter in vegas and a mexican gardener. He continued to meet strange women and go about his life normally. He is shocked when the house in Agrestic burns down and decides to go to Ren Mar with the rest of the family.
Andy tags along with the family when they go to Ren Mar. He had trouble making ammends with his father who seemed to never love Andy the way he did Judah. He helped the family earn money and continued to find himself in some sort of trouble.
He discovered that he had feelings for Nancy, who did not reciprocate. When she moved in with Esteban, he sank into depression, grew a beard, and spent over $180,000 on video games and dive bar-style decorating, including a car that he claims is The General Lee, but the veracity of this is disputable. In this season, his date Dr. Audra Kitson confirms he is "closer to forty than thirty" in his age. He decides that after Audra discovers his feelings over Nancy, he would join the Botwins on their "road trip."
Andy Joins the Botwins after accidently breaking up with Audra as he claims to not understand women.So he makes the plan of moving to Canada. But cant complete as they dont have any identifacation for the baby Stevie.This requires them to get fake Identifaction in which Andy becomes "Randy Newman". Randy Newman ends up working in a hotel as a dishwasher although he keeps egging the head chef on to make him a sous chef by placing dishes that he made around the kitchen. After events at the hotel turn sour they come across a hick "Off the Map" trailer park. Here Randy Newman the chef becomes Randy the Preacher with Doug(whom they saved episode prior)as his "saving" assisstant and they make a buisness out of blessing/saveing the locals namely an insane cyrstal meth addict.After they are ran out of the trailer park they head to Nancy's old neighbourhood which leads them to staying at an old teacher of hers. This is where Andy really forces the idea of going to Copenhagen in a now or never moment which in the result is now as they scavenge money for plane tickets and passports. As the Botwins arrive at the airport they are forced to give up Nancy and Stevie and Andy takes Silas and Shane while Mr. Schiff is arrested for stealing money from the post office.
