AS FRANKIE AND MIKE’S 25TH WEDDING ANNIVERSARY APPROACHES, SUE PUTS HER FOOT DOWN ON BEING THE FAMILY MEMBER WHOSE ROLE IS TO DO EVERYTHING THEY ASK OF HER WITHOUT COMPLAINT, AND THE REST OF THE HECKS BEGIN TO REBEL AGAINST WHAT THEIR SUPPOSED FAMILIAL ROLES HAVE BEEN

While Axl tries to invent a new beverage that mixes wine with beer and Brick decides to join the school orchestra in an attempt to play the field and find himself a new girlfriend, Mike asks Sue to take the reins in putting together a romantic evening for him and Frankie to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary – which both of them totally forgot. Frustrated with being the family member whose role is to do everything they ask of her without complaint, Sue puts her foot down and declares she will no longer be that person, which causes the rest of the Hecks to rethink and rebel against what their supposed familial roles have been.
