Taking Back The House
Season 2 | Episode 211 | Aired 01/04/2011
Speaking of the Little River Band, they’re playing this Wednesday night at T.J. Schnauzer’s. Actually, it’s the Little River Band cover band. Still not bad, right? Frankie convinces a few neighbors to join her and Mike for a weeknight out. Taking back the house isn’t good enough anymore. Frankie wants them all to take back their lives. What better way to do this than rockin’ out to a little Lonesome Loser in downtown Orson?
As much as Frankie and Mike enjoy their night out, they realize it’s not the kind of thing they can do on a regular basis. They need to be at home to stop Brick from doing things like place an online bid for a speedboat or meeting a chat room pal at the park.
Frankie also knows she needs to get Sue that polka dot umbrella for the Lunchroom Follies. Mike does, too. Of course, neither parent wants the other to know that he/she caved, so they both show up at the school with the polka dot prop. Why’d they do it? Simple. They love their kids. Besides, you can never have too many polka dot umbrellas.
