Storyline

Mike freezes Frankie out because he can't fathom how she inadvertently paid $200 for a small bottle of eye cream that she thought was priced at $20. Meanwhile, Axl's fathering techniques are put to the test when he has to take care of a mechanical infant doll for health class, and Sue and Brick desperately search for a way to fix a hole that they caused in Sue's bedroom wall.

Quotes

Frankie Heck: I am selling cars, I'm dyeing wool. Obadiah wants me to take a job as a schoolteacher because there's a drought and the corn isn't gonna save us this year. Even at my second job I have to get another job. I have two lives in two centuries and they both suck.

Love the line where Frankie has to get "a second job even in her second job!". "Four of whom lived!"

And the character of Sarah Moody Cochran (is there a better name for a 1816 Hoosier?) is a ringer for all those pioneer villages! In fact, there's several of those places right here in Indiana. And The Middle "gets" Indiana so accurately, I look around my town almost every episode looking for hidden writers!
