Sue Heck: We have to do something to help. I gave up my trip, so they don't have to pay for it. And you guys better start thinking of ways we can save money, too.
Axl Heck: No way! It's their fault. They don't know how to budget. They should've stopped having kids after me. You guys are the real money drain with your braces and your special school.
Brick Heck: I don't go to a special school.
Axl Heck: You don't?

The Middle The Hose
17 October 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Frankie losing her job decide to go on a walk but when she's get home life is just normal. Sue has to buy something so she has to raise half the money herself. Brick does not want to go to school the next day because of a video they are showing them. When Mike brings Sue to work his co-workers wonder why he is allowed while they are not. While Frankie is on her walk she walks by her neighbour Rita (Brooke Shields) who is a trashy person so she runs away. Frankie's neighbor Rita comes to her house looking for a hose which she does not have. When the Heck's front yard is destroyed they set up protection to safe the house. Sue comes to talk to the others surprised they are poor even though everyone else knows. The guard keeps going into the night as the guys sit outside. While waiting outside Axl explains being with girls to him. When Frankie try's to put a new hose on Rita's lawn but she does not want it. While in a fight with Frankie she falls on the ground and loses a part of her tooth. Sue tells Mike that she looked at his paycheck and that she did not want them to spend such money on her. Frankie then follows the hose that Rita said was stolen and it turns out that it was Brick. Just as Frankie is about to escape Rita comes back saying that her hose is back and she wants them to go to a barbecue. Boring episode and Brooke Shieldswas not good in any of her scenes bringing the episode down a few points.

EPISODE GRADE: C- (MVP: Atticus Shaffer)
