The Block Party
Season 1 | Episode 105 | Aired 10/27/2009
Mike regales the neighbors with the story of how Brick helped him repair the lawn mower. Brick impresses everyone by quoting the instructions word for word whenever anyone yells out a page number. In the final laps of the Birchwood 500, Mike leads all other lawn mower riders until Brick steps into the middle of the street to remind him that it’s time to go to that book signing.
Mike doesn’t want to lose the race. Brick dejectedly walks over to the curb and Mike catches him pulling out a handful of comfort condiments. With that, Mike pops the mower in reverse and plops Brick on his lap. Father and son head off to the bookstore in style, taking a shortcut across their neighbor’s from lawn. After all, Mike’s going to have to mow it now anyway.
