Frankie is pleasantly surprised when Axl asks if she would accompany him to the mall to help find a Valentine's Day gift for new girlfriend Vanessa. It's not going to be easy. Vanessa is a little older (19) and a little different (she has tattoos, pink hair and a slightly shaved head). Frankie is about to go ballistic until Axl asks if she'd like to grab a bite at the food court. Her son actually invited her to lunch. It's a Valentine's Day miracle!
Frankie pushes the envelope. She tricks Axl into having dinner with her under the guise that it's a scouting mission for his date with Vanessa. She's totally hooked. Frankie asks her firstborn baby boy if he'd like go out again the next night. Of course, Axl already has plans with scary biker chick Vanessa. Frankie is bummed that she won't be going on any more dates with her son. Hey, she still has Mike, so she cuddles up on the couch with him to watch the always-romantic Reservoir Dogs.
