Frankie tries to soothe her aching back in a warm bubble bath. She asks Brick add a little hot water to the tub. But Brick was always told he isn’t old enough to use the hot water by himself. Guess that was just another one of his incapacitated mom’s lies. When the water reaches a boiling point, Frankie screams for a panicked Brick to turn it off. Clearly he wasn’t ready for any of this.
Things eventually cool down and Frankie asks Brick to keep her back issues a secret from Mike. She says lying is bad but sometimes necessary to protect people, as well as make life a little easier. So when Mike wonders why the bathroom floor is so soaked, Brick rattles of an impressive, elaborate lie that makes mom proud. She’s also kind of horrified.
Frankie finally admits to Mike that she’s falling apart. Much to her surprise, Mike admits that he’s not a healthy as he may have led her to believe. A recent physical revealed that his cholesterol is through the roof. The news that they are falling apart together makes this the best anniversary ever!
