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.
