American Dad!: Spelling Bee My Baby

Francine discovers Steve’s special talent that will help him get into a great school: spelling. But when she fears that Steve is being distracted by Hiko’s sister, Akiko, she takes drastic measures to ensure victory at the Pearl Bailey High School Spelling Bee.

Meanwhile, Stan and Roger want Hayley to line-judge their badminton game, but she’s still devastated over Jeff, so they decide to push her through the five stages of grief as quickly as possible.
