Season 9, Episode 8 -  Aired November 21, 2017

When Axl spends the weekend in Chicago with Hutch, he's surprised how responsible his friend is now he has a job and his own apartment. Brick tries to woo a new girl at school before she has a chance to meet anyone else. Meanwhile, Sue has the apartment for herself for a weekend and struggles to sleep after watching a scary movie.

Quote from Axl

Axl: Yeah, you see, the power all comes from your core when you lift off. Unless you're doing one of those handstand-y dives, which is called an "upside-downer." There's a little bit more of, like... [water bottle spills]
Hutch: Hey, man! Watch it!
Axl: Whoa. Oh, it's just water.
Hutch: Which leaves water marks.
Axl: Dude, we lived in a 'Bago without a roof. I mean, we once left a sofa in the woods for like two weeks.
Hutch: I know, but my stuff's nicer now.
Axl: Oh, right, I'm sorry. I forgot... the table is a hand-me-down from Beyoncé.
Hutch: Well, I'm just saying that, for an Olympic diver, you seem kinda clumsy.
Axl: Well, I'm just saying that, for Beyoncé's cousin, it seems a little weird the coolest club you could get us into last night was the dueling-pianos bar.
Hutch: Mm-hmm. You know, I was wondering... Now that you're done with the whole Olympic-diving thing, what are you up to? 'Cause I was at this baked-potato place, and I swear, the guy working the counter looked just like you.


Quote from Mike

Mike: Can you open this for me? My arm's still a little numb from Sue sleeping on it all night.
Frankie: Oh. So, the swaddling still worked, huh?
Mike: Like a charm.
Frankie: Hmm. I never could do that.
Mike: I know. I should teach a class.

Quote from Mike

Frankie: Well, good for you, Axl. Sounds great.
Axl: Yeah. [puts glass in the dishwasher]
Frankie: Oh, my God, Mike, our 23-year-old is growing up.
Mike: Yep.
Frankie: Really? You have nothing more to say?
Mike: Nope. [they clink their beer bottles]
