After receiving multiple warnings about leaving his dirty, smelly socks lying around the house, Mike has finally had enough and punishes Axl by forbidding him to play in the final school basketball game of the season. But everyone assumes that Mike is being petty when they discover that Axl could end up beating his father's record for most free throws landed in a season if he does play in the game. Meanwhile, Sue is ecstatic - but Frankie and Mike are suspicious -- when she wins an MVP trophy for cross-country, and Brick is humiliated when he's forced to wear hand-me-down clothes from his rebellious cousin.

Did You Know?
You know, Axl, I once had this big fight with my dad. Two of us didn't talk for weeks. I felt bad about it. And I knew he was wanting his car washed, so I went out and did it. And when he saw that gesture, he knew that was my way of saying sorry, and so he was able to turn around and give me something I wanted.
God, Dad, after all you've done to me, what makes you think I want to hear one of your boring stories?
