Reverend Tim-Tom makes a triumphant return to dispense his special brand of musical advice. He suggests Frankie and Mike look at things through Axl's eyes. After all, high school is a social minefield. Sue agrees. It's a lot like the lunchroom. As for Brick, he's bummed to hear his folks think his shows are endless and boring. Theater critics can be brutal.
Mike tells Brick that his first show was actually quite good because he worked at it. After that, he was just phoning it in. Brick understands. He also makes Mike understand that sometimes you make allowances for family. The kid's smart. Maybe too smart. Speaking of wise men...
Reverend Tim-Tom strums out a song that lets Frankie and Mike know that it's hard being a parent. We believe it's called "It's Hard Being a Parent." Before the Rev hits the road, he tells Sue that she should never think any table is too good for her. This inspires her to make her incredible journey over to the B Table. Too bad everyone there moves over to the A Table shortly after Sue arrives.
As for the prom situation, Axl opts to suck it up for one night to do the right thing. His date, Weird Ashley, certainly lives up to her name. She's really into wizards though she has no idea who Harry Potter is. Looks like Axl's in for a long night. So are Frankie and Mike. They sink in to enjoy the latest production from Brick Pictures: Alien Robot, The Prequel. Think he got Reverend Tim-Tom to do the soundtrack?
