Frankie Heck ([[Series/EverybodyLovesRaymond Patricia Heaton]]) and her husband Mike ([[Series/{{Scrubs}} Neil Flynn]]) live in the Midwestern town of Orson, Indiana. Frankie was a saleswoman at "Ehlert Motors" (where she had the lowest sale record) and Mike is the manager at the local quarry. Their three children are: Axl (Charlie McDermott), perpetually lazy and unmotivated, even to wear a shirt or pants; Sue (Eden Sher), the braces-wearing middle child who tries out for a number of extracurricular activities...and fails spectacularly at them all; and Brick (Atticus Shaffer), the gifted, but socially awkward smallest child, who reads a lot and has a tendency to [[VerbalTic repeat the last words he said]][[note]]last words he said[[/note]].

** "Orlando"/"The Wonderful World of Hecks" is another of a long line of ABC sitcoms promoting the Ride/DisneyThemeParks. A prize of what is assumed to be tickets to Walt Disney World turns out to be tickets to Disneyland, 2,500 miles in the other direction. WDW is magnanimous enough to accept the Hecks' tickets anyway.

Added DiffLines:

** Not exactly a considerable height difference, but Axl is noticeably taller than Lexie as well.


Added DiffLines:

* RomanticFalseLead: April is this to Axl in Season 8. After the previous season ended with the tease of Axl meeting "the love of his life", the rest of the family thought April was the absolute wrong choice for him. Despite how nice she was, a lot of the bad that happened with Axl that season was rooted in dating her and things turned around for him once they split up and he got together with [[spoiler:Lexie]].
