Everyone loves the weekend. Everyone except Frankie Heck. For her, the weekend is a time to do all the things she didn’t finish during the week. Brick is tired of being his mom’s wingman during her errand runs. He wants to channel his inner Macaulay Culkin and stay home alone. Yeah, that’s not gonna happen. It’s not that Frankie doesn’t trust him… Wait a minute. Yes, it is.
In lieu of being Frankie’s errand buddy, Brick agrees to spend the day with his aunts. Big mistake. If the secondhand smoke doesn’t kill him, the sheer torture of watching Spanish-language soap operas will. Brick does a little digging to discover that both Axl and Sue were allowed to stay home alone when they were his age. Eventually, Frankie caves.
