Storyline

Frankie tries to do a good deed for Thanksgiving by inviting a couple of Marines to celebrate the holiday with her family. But with Frankie's parents, Pat and Tag, constantly bickering, the good deed may not go unpunished. Meanwhile, while Axl grapples with his growing feelings for tutor Cassidy, he receives the good news that his foot is healed and he can play in the big game; Sue tries to track down the thief who has stolen the chicken head off of her school mascot uniform; and Brick becomes mesmerized by a book on the making of the film "Love Story".

The Middle Thanksgiving IV
15 November 2012 | by See all my reviews

Thanksgiving once again and Frankie must prepare the dinner once again. Frankie wants to bring Marines to her house for Thansgiving. She tells him she signed the family up to bring these two new guests. Brick got a new book about the making of the movie Love Story. Axl's foot is now better while the chicken head disappears. Frankie's parents come to the house and they are fighting again. When Axl goes to his tutor to celebrate she does not seem impressed compared to everyone else. Axl seems interested in his book and his grandmother wants to see the movie with him. Sue opens her locker and a note says her chicken head has been stolen. Mike has to talk to Axl which makes him tell his tutor that he really likes her. She says no because she is spending thanksgiving with her boyfriend. To find her chicken head Sue has to go to the football team who have stole her chicken head. The marines finally come to the house and Frankie sees how her house may embarrass her. Everyone sits down to dinner and Frankie starts thankful speeches. Of course fighting happens and Frankie is the one to scream at everyone. The marines leave as fast as they can. The next day at the game no one is happy and Sue has to talk to Axl to make him play better in the game. Axl then plays better once Sue tells him to. Someone from a college school says Axl cam go to their school. After his game Cassidy is there watching him. The two finally kiss for real which is weird how much he likes her for being different for him. OK episode but less comedy which is what I always like to watch on the show.
