In the Season 7 episode, “Birds of a Feather,” it’s Axl’s (Charlie McDermott) first day as an intern at Little Betty, but he gets a taste of the real world when things don’t go as planned. Meanwhile, Sue’s (Eden Sher) new professor challenges her to strengthen her critical thinking and put away her rose-colored glasses for a writing assignment. And Frankie (Patricia Heaton) can’t seem to gel with her new work environment
Stressed at work, Frankie deals with her boss - the joyful dentist Dr. Goodwin (guest star Jack McBrayer) - as frustrated patients pile up. Will an impromptu dance party lift her spirits?
Sue is struggling to think deeper and more critically, so the sunshiny Heck daughter asks her professor to see things from her perspective. But it doesn’t take long for her to see what he’s been talking about all along.
Axl's new job isn't shaping up to be the best experience. His boss ignores him, he's running pointless errands, and he's convinced his childhood dreams will never come true. Mike and Frankie try to cheer him up.
