‘Valentine's Day III’

Season 3, Episode 15 -  Aired February 8, 2012

Despite their inclination to stay home and watch TV, Frankie and Mike go out for Valentine's Day with their friends. Meanwhile, Axl struggles to think of a life-changing event to write about, Brick has to write a report on love, and Sue is disturbed by Matt's new kissing technique.

Quote from Brick

Brick: Oh, good. You're here. You can sit over there next to mom. Dad! Axl!
Sue: Why am I doing this?
Frankie: We have to listen to your brother's paper.
Brick: You listened to Axl's. In the interest of not showing favoritism, you could be a little more enthusiastic.
Mike: Is this a new thing? We have to listen to papers now?


Quote from Axl

Frankie: Oh, Brick. That was really amazing.
Mike: Really good job, buddy.
Axl: What? You guys liked that snooze fest, but you didn't like my paper about not being hot enough? Oh. I see what's going on here. His paper's all about you, so it's good. Whatever.

Quote from Axl

Frankie: [v.o.] It turned out Brick's paper affected all of us. Even Axl found an appreciation for his brother's work.
Axl: "Sure, it's easy to get trapped under ice. That's obvious. But when I think about what's really life-changing, I think about the little things, like when my mom rubs my dad's neck when he's driving, or the way my dad scrapes ice off my mom's windshield on frosty mornings or their own secret language. Yeah, we don't have a lot of money, but even if we did..."
Frankie: [v.o.] Point is, we'd all survived another Valentine's Day. 'Cause let's face it, it's a high-pressure holiday. Lucky when you plan on loving someone for the rest of your life, you got a lot of other days to get it right.
