The Carpool is the twelfth episode of Season 5. It aired on January 22, 2014.
With the bus drivers on strike, Principal Barker asks the parents to form carpools to get the kids to and from school. But with time management not being one of Frankie's strong suits, her carpool kids (including Brick) find themselves facing the possibility of being on the receiving end of some tardy slips - which could ruin their chances of being invited to the "No Tardy Party." Meanwhile, Axl hits the books and becomes an expert in Astronomy in order to attract a female student whom he has fallen for, and Sue desperately wants to go to an Indiana Hoosiers basketball game with Mike.
