Mike Heck remains imperturbable, whether another Orson, Indiana quarry employee is hurt in an explosion or his family goes trough even more drama.

She's most like mother Frankie, who despite utterly neglecting the household is near dismissal for never selling a single car at the dealership, and nearly succeeding proves even worse. Written by
