‘The Other Man’

Season 9, Episode 12 -  Aired January 9, 2018

After Axl starts his new job, Frankie feels left out as Axl and Mike bond as working men. Meanwhile, Brad asks Sue not to break up with Aidan just yet when he's introduced to Aidan's bandmate, Luke (Corbin Bleu).

Quote from Sue

Sue: Uch. Brad, my stomach is all fluttery... and not the good kind like when you realize you're the only one on the ballot for Youth Group Treasurer.


Quote from Frankie

Frankie: Oh, there you guys are. I was starting to get worried.
Mike: Yeah, well, Axl texted and said that he had a sales call on Route 42, and I was right there.
Axl: Yeah, and then Dad texted me back and said, "Meet me at Goobers. It's fried fish night." Who's saying no to that?
Frankie: Well, I guess you have to get a chance to say no. Anyway, I'm glad you guys are getting each other's texts. I guess you missed mine where I said, "Mike, where are you? Are we getting dinner? Do you know where Axl is?" And, Axl, I texted you. "Axl, where are you? Are we getting dinner? Do you know where your dad is?" Uh, though you probably didn't hear your phones. Goobers is loud. But I'm glad you guys had fun.

Quote from Axl

Frankie: Oh, what happened in the parking lot?
Mike: Um...
Axl: Nothing. It'd take too long to explain.
Frankie: I got time.
Mike: Uh, no, he's right. You had to be there.
Frankie: Yeah, but I wasn't there. That's why I need you to tell me.
Axl: Eh, it's an inside joke. [Frankie sighs]
Brick: They're all inside jokes to me.

Quote from Axl

Mike: Hey. Look who just got home.
Axl: Let's go! I'm starving!
Frankie: But, Axl, you're in my seat.
Axl: Mom, don't make a big deal. The seat belt works better up here, and I'm young. Let's just go.
Frankie: [sighs] Fine. Fine. [clears throat] I'm starving, too. Just get a burger in my mouth, and I will be happy.
Axl: No! I had a burger for lunch. I want Chinese.
Mike: He had a burger for lunch.
Frankie: Wait a minute. Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. I thought we agreed on burgers?
Axl: You lost the popular vote, Mom, two to one. Get over it.

Quote from Brad

Brad: Oh, my God. Sue, how are you? Or more importantly, how am I? Thanks for asking. I'm great.
Sue: Oh, really?
Brad: Oh, better than great. After we carried you to the car, the crisis had sort of bonded us. So I asked Luke if he wanted to grab a drink, and he said yes.
Sue: Ooh! Ha!
Brad: So we went down the street to Eskimo Joe's, and we talked for hours.
Sue: [gasps] Oh, my God! Brad! Oh, that is so great. Oh, I'm so happy for you. Luke seems like a really nice guy.
Brad: Oh, he is. And I was able to be myself and everything.

Quote from Sue

Brad: So, anyway, you are finally free to cut Aidan loose.
Sue: Actually, I'm not so sure about that.
Brad: Wait. What?
Sue: Yeah, I don't know. He kissed me tonight, and I have to say, it wasn't so much "eh." It was more like "ahh."
Brad: And that's not the head injury talking?
Sue: No, no, the thing is, I realized Aidan is just like me. He tries really hard like me. He's klutzy like me.
Brad: Mm.
Sue: Maybe this is like one of those romantic-comedy movies when I am pining away after the unobtainable guy when the perfect guy is right under my nose the whole time. [sighs] I-I feel like I should give Aidan a chance.

Quote from Brad

Brad: Wow. [chuckles] I'm dating Luke, you're dating Aidan. This is the beginning of "Bruke" and "Saidan." Ooh.
[gasps] That's too much like Satan. I'll work on it.
Sue: "Aidue."
Brad: Oh. Ooh. That's good.
