The search for the missing jacket leads the kids to the home of Sue's friend Weird Ashley. She's the girl Axl reluctantly took to the prom. Weird Ashley still has a big crush on the Ax-Man. Somehow she tricks him into asking to prom again. She'll let him know what color cape she'll be wearing later.
Sue's coat was at home all along under a pile of Axl's dirty clothes. A moth flies out from all the filthy laundry to make its way into Brick's ear. Not good. In other news, Frankie and Mike are chugging beers, bowling strikes and loving life. Another couple wants to know their secret. That's simple. Give the kids their independence. This works brilliantly right up until you get a phone call saying your youngest son is in the emergency room.
The doctor at the hospital removes the moth from Brick's ear. He also finds a Monopoly piece that's probably been in there for a few months. This turn of events leads to another big argument. It forces the ER doctor to have a sit down chat with the entire family because those things always work, right?
