Frankie wants a new bed. She longs to turn their bedroom into a sanctuary. This leads to some strife with Mike, who doesn't take kindly to change even though people in crack houses are living on nicer mattresses than theirs. He also doesn't like the way his wife shares personal into with others. Eventually, Mike agrees to buy a new bed. He'll assemble it himself. Well, he'll "try" to assemble it.
Mike refuses to call the handy 800-number where friendly representatives are standing by to assist him. So, Frankie does it for him. Once the bed is together, they both realize the headboard doesn't allow for maximum comfort. This leads to a big brouhaha where Mike likens his wife to her mother. Moments later, World War III erupts right there in Orson. Frankie and Mike eventually make nice after switching beds with Axl.
Brick is looking for ways to get out of the humiliation of the annual Presidential Fitness Challenge at school. He makes a call to the White House, but gets transferred to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. Axl's attempt to teach his little brother how to do a pull-up doesn't go well. All signs indicate that Brick is going to, once again, be embarrassed during exercise. But he ends up getting some intentional laughs from the gym class once they see he's not taking things all that seriously. Way to go Brick!
