Episode Summary

While buying diapers for Sue, who is baby-sitting, Frankie gets humiliated when the sales clerk assumes she's shopping for adult diapers. At home, Frankie pressures Mike into getting a physical because she believes men fall apart faster than women; however, when Mike receives a clean bill of health from the doctor, Frankie proceeds to throw her back out and hide it from Mike. Meanwhile, Sue falls in love with Axl's friend Sean, who pays no attention to her and Brick begins to test some of the "urban legends" that parents tell their kids.moreless

  • The President Outlawed Kids Under 10 From Buying Candy

    10
    Brick tests urban legends. When Axl's friend offers him a candy bar, he didn't want it becasue he be breaking the law. Then he realizes his mother tricked him. Then he told her that he's been writing letters to the President & probably thinks he's crazy (*crazy*).



    Frankie was insulted when the drug store employee took her over to the adult diapers, instead of the baby diapers! She felt very depressed that she hurt her back in that episode.



    This episode featured three secret word whispers from Brick!moreless

    This is a pretty good family show, and there's no denying that when you watch this entertaining episode. The Middle is definitely better than Modern Family, and I really don't understand why Modern Family won an Emmy. For their original mockumentary idea? Yeah The Office got the same award for that same "original" idea.



    Anyways, this is a really great family show. From Sue throwing out her back to Brick trying to lie, we got a lot of hilarious moments. Even though Sue's story line wasn't that interesting and heavily cliched, I still liked that unexpected move from Axel in attempts to save his sister's reputation. It's those kinds of family moments that make this show so great, and entertaining. Picking this show up for a second season was definitely not a mistake.moreless
