Frankie lets Brick hang home solo for 24 minutes while she runs her errands. What could possibly happen in 24 minutes? Well, in addition to roaming around the house while wrapped in tin foil, Brick gets hungry for pizza rolls. So he preheats the oven. Unfortunately, that’s where Frankie keeps Aunt Pearl’s quilt. She says, “Microwave is for pizza rolls. The oven is for bulky storage.” It’s just common sense.
The near-miss kitchen fire means Brick has been reinstated as Frankie’s favorite errand boy. It’s a huge source of tension between mother and son. The two of them are so busy arguing that they don’t notice the windows are open as they roll through a car wash. It’s a soapy, sudsy mess. It’s also turns into tons of fun for both Frankie and Brick. Maybe it’s not so bad doing errands together after all.
