It's a pomp-and-circumstancy
on Wednesday (June 18). Reed Robertson, Jase and Missy's son, is a graduating high school senior.
Sure, Reed is graduating, but his dad doesn't think the actual ceremony is necessary. He didn't go to his own graduation ceremony, and as he says, he still graduated. He went frog hunting instead. And he wants to pass that tradition down to his son.
Of course, Jase's wife Missy doesn't precisely agree with that idea. So Jase figures he'll do the next best thing and take Reed frog hunting the night before graduation. By force. Frog hunting kidnapping, specifically, if Si had his way.
But Reed heads out into the deep dark night with Uncle Willie, Great-uncle Si, and Dad, who are all a veritable fountains of bad, rambling advice as to college, and life, all while catching frogs. Willie's big advice? Get the hot dogs that have cheese already in them. Eww.
Miss Kay, Korie, Jep and Jessica are putting together a photo album for Reed as a gift to take to college. While looking through old family photos, they get to discussing Robertson family pranks throughout the years, and Jessica admits she's never "rolled a house." As in, toliet-papered anyone's home. They decide to attack Jase and Missy's house that night. Miss Kay is more of a tp-ing decorator, determined to make the shrubs look nice. Korie, who is supposed to be a pro, keeps missing the mark.
Of course, they get caught. Miss Kay, instead of running, "makes like a stump" and hides in the bushes. They were the loudest pranksters ever.
In the end, Reed and the frog catchers make a run for some hot donuts, and Willie tries to get Jase to open up about his pain over Reed leaving the nest. Jase's response? "Phhlllppppbbbt." But he does say he's going to get in as many frog hunts before Reed leaves home as he can.
And just for the record, Reed's middle name is Silas. Awww.
