'The Middle' Season 5 premiere: Axl learns what a scholarship really meansAdd to Favorites | The Middle
The season premiere of "The Middle" will reveal that Axl ( Charlie McDermott) has not managed to mess up his college scholarship over the summer. Possibly because he doesn't quite understand the concept of what a scholarship is.
In this clip from Wednesday's (Sept. 25) premiere -- which you can watch exclusively on Zap2it -- Frankie ( Patricia Heaton) takes her eldest shopping for a few dorm-room essentials. Per usual, Axl is less than thrilled to be A) spending time with his mom and B) doing something that feels even remotely like a chore.
"I can just buy stuff when I get to school," Axl protests.
"With what?" Frankie wants to know.
"Uh, my scholarship money -- duh. Don't they give it to me in like an envelope or something when I get there?"
Chalk this up as the first thing Axl learns at college. "The Middle" premieres at 8 p.m. ET Wednesday on ABC.
