The Hecks gain an all-you-can-eat buffet gift card for a favorite restaurant, but they must go to church before using it!

Axl arrives home from college, and the Hecks' are set for a all you can eat buffet dinner, but they must go to church first. Mike tells the Heck family that reverend Haver, the usual priest is away, and reverend Green is taking his place this week. While, Sue looks at colleges, and, to the anger of Axl, focuses on East Indiana, his university.

Once at church, Axl, Sue, and Brick begin stirring trouble, attracting the attention of Reverend Green. After church has ended, reverend green calls out for the Hecks; this cuts to the family, and the Reverend sits in his office. The Reverend explains to them how families come together for a long period.

The heck family, waiting patiently in the reverend office.

Once this session is finished, the Hecks' are anxious to go and eat, but Brick then stalls and gets a private session, followed by Sue. She confesses she twerked at a party and bores the reverend. Once Sue is finished, the Hecks are ready to leave. But the reverend then tells them their family has troubles, but they just need another group huddle. During his speech, Axl cuts him off, stating that he will have to change his identity if Sue goes to his college; Brick is weird; they have arguments and live on fast food. He tops this off, saying that his family has no troubles. Later at the restaurant, as the Hecks' dinner, they applaud Axl for lying to get them out. Axl then confesses he was being true, that he loves his family. After he tells them this, Frankie bursts into tears.
