The Summer of Sue and Dad is a project created by Sue Heck to grasp the moments of her and her father, Mike Heck, spending time together. The reason of this was when Sue's older brother, Axl Heck, claimed every parent has a favorite child, their mother Frankie Heck denied it and Mike implied it was true. Mike claimed, he and Axl have a lot in common, such as football and sports. Sue was upset. Sue took out a scrapbook and labeled it The Summer of Sue and Dad, and alerted her father about the project. Mike then started giving Axl negative attention and Sue none at all. Going to a fair, Axl had his school paper in his truck when he wreck it and got towed. Frankie got upset and no one would listen to poor Sue. At the fair, Sue went to the lost and found for children wanting her family to wish to find her. After a while, the family came there to ask if they'd found the paper and left without Sue. At night, watching the fireworks, Axl stated he liked Mike better then Frankie. Sue got all worked up about how mom does everything for them. Brick then lesser stated he liked dad better. Sue slipped out accidently she liked dad better. They all agreed to forget about it and have no favorites. Back at the house, Sue completed the scrapbook with fun pictures.
