Frankie and Mike chat about Axl and Sue as they push that D.O.A. automobile down the road. No matter what they do as parents, it only seems to enrage their kids. They agree that the teenage years are nature’s way of putting parents through hell so they won’t miss their children when they’re gone. They also agree that they have some pretty good kids and they’re lucky. They further agree that they could be a whole lot luckier.
When Aunt Edie and Aunt Ginny hop a smoking bus to Vegas, Brick volunteers to watch their diaper-wearing dog, Doris. Unfortunately, our boy Brick has a history of killing pets due to his short attention span. Nevertheless, Frankie and Mike decide to give him one more shot. After all, Doris is super old. If she dies on Brick’s watch, there’s no way the Vegas-bound aunts can pin it on them.
Sue eventually forgives her mom and opts to continue to wear her new jeans as Bermudas. But that’s not going to work. Doris the dog, who has been missing for awhile unbeknownst to Brick, shows up in the laundry room. As it turns out, Doris was pregnant and she delivered a full litter of puppies right on top of Sue’s magic jeans. But judging by the mess Doris left behind, it’s safe to say that the magic is gone. Think Brick will get to keep one of those puppies?
