'The Middle': Teenage Bad Ideas, Making Out, and Throwing UpOh, to be a teenager again! After all, adolescence is the best time to come up with really bad plans that never work. Generally, these plans involve "hottie" girls. And yeah, these plans always fail. But at least they're entertaining.

[Warning: Spoiler alert.]

On 'The Middle' (Wed., 8PM ET on ABC), it's Halloween time! Which equals girls in skimpy costumes. Teen son Axl Heck (Charlie McDermott) has an idea. He and his pals will take some "hottie" girls to a local haunted house. Once they're inside, the ladies will be so overcome with terror that they'll fall gratefully into the boys arms. Then, kissing will happen.

Of course, there are flaws with this plan. One of them: Even the boys are scared of the haunted house, and no one has made it through "without barfing." And barf doesn't generally lead to romance. But Axl shrugs away his friends' objections: "Think about it! [The girls] throw up all over the place, look to us for comfort. Boom! We're making out with them!" Brilliant! The guys high five, overcome by their own genius.

It falls to younger son Brick Heck (Atticus Shaffer) to make a sensible objection. "Kissing's gross enough -- but wouldn't it be worse after the girl just threw up?" Good point, Brick. You are wise. But don't worry: In a few years, you'll be overcome with teenage hormones too. And then you'll come up with really bad ideas about girls, just like your older brother. Thus, the circle of life will continue.
