The Heck kids are bummed when a brand new box of hand-me-down clothes arrives from their cousins. Brick is the hardest hit by this fashion catastrophe. His new leather jacket with chains gets him labeled as one of the Village People at school. And the outfit that has him looking like Liberace doesn't exactly have Brick feeling like a Macho Man.
Speaking of clothing issues, Mike is upset because Axl keeps leaving his smelly socks all over the house. Things escalate to the point where he has no choice but to punish his number one son. It's gotta be something big, so Mike benches his boy for the final basketball game of the season. Ouch!
Axl is stunned. He begs Frankie to intervene, but she fully supports Mike's decision. At least, that's what she tells Axl. Truth be told, yanking the kid out of his last hoops game is a punishment that doesn't fit this particular crime. Mike can't cave though. What to do? What to do?
