Now that Frankie knows Axl was offered a job in Denver, she makes it her mission to sway him from taking it and moving away. Meanwhile, the usually overly optimistic Sue is depressed over Sean leaving for Ghana, without ever expressing her feelings for him; and Brick drives everyone crazy when he buys a huge amount of lawn chairs to replace the one he’s been using for nine years.

Determined to end the family tradition of giving Frankie a lame gift for Mother's Day, Sue and Brick try to win a trivia contest in which the top prize is a trip to London to view the Royal Wedding. When their effort falls short, they come up with a gift idea that's almost as good. Meanwhile, Axl tells Mike about a job opportunity at a national sporting goods chain that has more advancement potential than his current position, but the job is in Denver. To keep Frankie from finding out, Mike has to make up one lie after another to cover for Axl's absence when he travels to Denver for the interview. MORE -LESS

Frankie insists that Brick ask Cindy to the prom, but her suggested "promposal" doesn't work. Brick's original idea to ask Cindy does work, and she accepts. Worried that Brick and Cindy will have no one to hang with at prom, Frankie organizes a pre-prom party with Brick's old friends from the socially-challenged group, including Arlo and Zack. This backfires when it becomes apparent that those kids have outgrown their quirks while Brick still hasn't. Brick and Cindy enjoy a private prom at the Orson Public Library, while Mike tells Frankie he is happy to have a child who doesn't think like everyone else. Elsewhere, Lexie scolds Axl for not getting Sue a 21st birthday gift. He gets Sue excited by telling her he is planning something special, but when the day comes, Axl is completely stumped. Sue is angry, but Frankie later tells her about how Axl doted on her when they were toddlers, lifting Sue's spirits again. MORE -LESS
