Mother S Day
Season 1 | Episode 122 | Aired 05/04/2010
Frankie wants to grab a shower before opening the rest of her presents. CUE THE PANICKED DAD! Mike says, “Grab the coupon drawer. We got 20 minutes to hit the drugstore and get your mom something she’ll treasure forever.” All non-mom Hecks spread out to find the perfect gift. Sue suggests a motivational refrigerator magnet she loves. Mike puts the kibosh on the magnet and buys something Frankie will really enjoy: an inflatable foot bath, complete with sloughing bumps to remove dead skin.
Frankie loves her gift. And by “love,” we mean she hates it. She can’t help but compare this Mother’s Day gift to Mike’s last Father’s Day present. Frankie drove for hours in a blizzard to get him a board from the floor of the old Indiana Hoosiers’ basketball court. She also helped Brick build a remote control caddy and let Mike watch sports all day, kind of like he’s doing now.
