Everyone else totally nailed it. They have a mother's day gift that will touch her heart. Mine will touch her butt.
— Harley

Stuck in the Mother's Day Gift is the seventh episode in season 1 of Stuck in the Middle. It aired on April 29, 2016 to 1.5 million viewers.[1]


Harley decides to go solo on a Mother's Day Gift, rather than include the rest of her siblings, because with her siblings things don't go as planned.


It's Mother's Day; and every year the Diaz kids always wait on Harley to come up with the best gift for their mom so that they can just sign their names. Well, this year Harley won't let it happen again. She tells them that everyone should come up with her own gift.

Rachel and Daphne partner up to sell cookies in order to buy their mom a cool purse. Rachel uses her hotness while Daphne uses her cuteness to convince people to buy their cookies and leave tips. Tom offers to repair the pothole in the driveway. Lewie and Beast want to make her a gravy boat. And Ethan is making her a strawberry pie with berries stolen from Bethany Peters's garden.

Georgie wants to partner with Harley because she can't think of any good idea by herself. Harley tells her that her mom gift idea is to make a toilet paper dispenser for throwing toilet paper rolls into the bathroom. After realizing how her idea sounds compared to everyone else's, Harley and Georgie decide to partner up for a different gift. They use a car-washing ad from their dad's store to get their mom's car washed.

Unfortunately, they can't find the car the next door. After realizing that the person they hired to wash their mom's car may have stolen it, Georgie and Harley panic and involve the rest of the kids to help look for the car. The Diaz kids agree because all of their gift ideas failed too. They search all over without success. When Suzy comes in asking what happened to her car, the kids think she's noticed it's missing. It turns out that the car was there the whole time. They just didn't notice it because it's so clean now.

Suzy admits to Harley that she knows Harley is the one who puts all the effort for all the kids' gifts. But this time, Harley notes that the other kids actually helped.

Toilet paper changer? Awesome! That's personal and memorable! Mom will think of us every time she... oh!
