FRANKIE FINDS IT HARD TO RELAX ON HER NEW BACKYARD LANAI WHEN NEW NEIGHBORS WITH SCREAMING KIDS MOVE IN NEXT DOOR, AND AXL AND HUTCH OPEN A GRILLED CHEESE FOOD TRUCK OUT OF THEIR WINNEBAGO,
ON ABC'S 'THE MIDDLE'
"The Lanai" - Frankie is excited to lay out and relax on her new backyard lanai - aka patio - that Mike and his workmates built for her. But peace and serenity become hard to come by when new neighbors, with three screaming kids, move in next door and make it next to impossible for Frankie to find some quiet time. Meanwhile, Brick questions Mike as to whether his workmates helped build the lanai because they are his friends, or because he's their boss; Sue and Lexie draw a winning number in the dorm lottery and score the perfect room but find it difficult to kick out its current occupants; and Axl and Hutch open up a grilled cheese food truck out of their Winnebago, with a reluctant Kenny as their chef, on "The Middle," WEDNESDAY, APRIL 27 (8:00-8:30 p.m. EDT), on the ABC Television Network.
