American Housewife Wiki

"Under Pressure" is the seventh episode of the fifth season of American Housewife and the ninety-seventh episode overall. Written by Michael Hobert and directed by Chris Koch, it aired on January 27, 2021.


After repeatedly declining Maria's request for a couples dinner, Katie eventually caves when Greg says that Maria's husband, Principal Ablin, can greatly help his city council campaign by endorsing him on the school's message board. However, the dinner only inspires Ablin to run for city council himself. Anna-Kat unwittingly becomes the "queen bee" of her friend group, which greatly pleases Katie but causes Anna-Kat stress when her friends begin to copy her every move. Meanwhile, Oliver's stress over his SAT test has him reluctantly trying the relaxation techniques that Taylor is learning in her psychology class, but nothing seems to work. Oliver then gets a call on teen helpline from a girl who is worried about a big tennis match, and he gives her sound advice. Taylor then presents Oliver with his own advice, admitting she called teen helpline using an app to disguise her voice.
