For Frankie Heck, the best part of Thanksgiving is the day after. Black Friday. She devises a battle plan for the family so they can take full advantage of the sales when the stores open at midnight. Sue is to cover housewares and Axl is on sporting goods. Brick is small and can weave through the crowd, so he’s on electronics. You gotta love a woman with a plan.
Sue has a boyfriend named Brad. Mike is worried that Sue is too young to date until he meets the boy. Brad’s overly-effeminate ways alleviate Mike’s fears that he’ll try anything inappropriate with his little girl. “Think we should say something to Sue?” Frankie asks. Mike says, “No, she’ll figure it out eventually…or he will.”
