Frankie wants Mike to force their slacker son Axl to, well, stop being such a slacker. When Axl doesn’t fall in line, Mike says the boy needs to be punished. Axl storms out of the house slamming the front door behind him.
Thank goodness the Heck family living room doesn’t have hardwood floors. Otherwise, the sound of the front door falling completely off its hinges and crashing inward could have been a lot worse. Mike says the door will stay right where it is until Axl fixes it.
The problem with not having a front door is that Jehovah’s Witnesses can now walk right into your house. This is just one of the reasons Frankie desperately wants Mike to cave. Nevertheless, she supports him in his stubborn attempt to teach Axl a lesson as she rakes away the leaves that drift into the living room overnight. Hey, it gets pretty windy over there in Orson.
