Back To School
Season 2 | Episode 201 | Aired 09/21/2010
The kids think grandma has come for a visit when they smell breakfast food cooking the next morning. But it’s the new Frankie Heck who’s makin’ that bacon. And that strange noise emanating from Axl’s bedroom clock is something called an alarm. It totally freaks him out. Brick is also freaked by the fact that Frankie got him a new backpack. His old one was such a trusted friend which has now been tossed into the trash.
Frankie makes sure Sue has all that she needs to get her new cross country sweatshirt. She also freezes enough brownies to cover an entire year of bake sales. Frankie tries to do a preemptive strike with Brick’s new teacher, Mrs. Rinsky (guest star Doris Roberts), by briefing her on his “quirky” qualities. This doesn’t go well, as the teach has some strong opinions about Frankie’s parenting. Anyone else feeling a little sitcom déjà vu?
