Did You Know?


When Frances and Brick are discussing The Bachelor, Brick mentions that in one episode a contestant is embarrassed because she could not bait her hook when she was taken fly fishing. Fly fishing does not use bait, only fly hooks. See more »


Mike Heck: Sue, sports isn't about being nice. Sports is about being competitive. It's about wanting to beat the other person.
Sue Heck: Oh, I think I remember my coach saying something about that.
Mike Heck: Okay. So, if you really want to win, you gotta dig down deep. You gotta get in touch with that anger.
Sue Heck: What anger?
Mike Heck: The anger that's inside you.
Sue Heck: I don't have any anger inside me.
Sue Heck: Dad, do you have anger inside you?
Mike Heck: A little bit.

The Middle The Bachelor
4 April 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

With The Middle being a show on ABC they do another advertisement for the channel going from the Oscars to Frankie now being a massive fan of the ABC show The Bachelor which was her main point in the episode as went into depression over the decision made. Her scenes where fine and did feel like something real women did but it was something I did not care for. Sue actually doing sport and winning in her own way (Killing them with Kindness) was the funniest part of the episode because Eden and Neil are always funny together. Axl and Cassidy being so in love is nice but nothing I really care for and Atticus Shaffer was barely used and lately has not been used.
