Storyline

When the Heck family goes into a cleaning frenzy in order to get the trash out to a passing garbage truck, Frankie accidentally hits Brick with a beer bottle as she attempts to toss it into a bag - causing a small scratch. But when Brick innocently informs his school that his scratch was caused by his mother throwing a beer bottle at him, a social worker is called to look into the matter - sending Frankie into a panic to give off the image that the Hecks are a picture-perfect family. Meanwhile, Bob must help an uncooperative Mr. Ehlert shoot a new commercial advertising the car lot. Written by ABC Publicity

Sue Heck: I'm just so scared.
Mike Heck: Honey, I'm gonna give you a piece of advice that my dad gave me once. He said, 'Son, stuff those feelings down. Stuff'em down and eventually they'll go away.' And I have not cried since.
