Brick’s science class is hatching eggs for a school project and his is the only one that hasn’t hatched. He vows to care for the egg until the chick inside comes out. Brick’s hoping for a boy, so he names the little guy Scout. When the egg finally does hatch, Brick realizes parenthood can be very demanding. He says, “I’m wiped. He always wants to eat, play. I’m constantly cleaning up after him.” Frankie replies, “Throw in a carpool and we’ll talk.”
To prove that she’s willing to accept Morgan, Frankie invites her over for dinner. They’ll be having chicken—regular, extra crispy and extra chirpy. Actually, the extra chirpy refers to Brick’s chick Scout, who joins them at the table. Hopefully Scout doesn’t have any relatives in any of those takeout boxes.
Morgan has quite the influence over Axl. She rattles off a laundry list of things she’s ordered him to do. Frankie manages to make it through dinner without fulfilling her fantasy of jumping across the table to strangle Morgan. But she is concerned that the girl has way too much power over her son. It’s keeping her up at night. As we know, she’s a worrier.
