Quote from Frankie in The Carpool

Frankie: [v.o.] Axl was lucky. He only had one person mad at him. I had three.
[Bill honks his car horn outside]
Frankie: Damn it! I let you stay up late to watch the finale of Shark Tank after you promised me you would wake up early! What are you doing?
Brick: I'm jazzing up breakfast with a banana.
Frankie: Oh, no. Breakfast is over. Here. You can have it for lunch.
Mike: Axl says he can't go to the game 'cause he's boning up for some big astronomy test. Did you know he was taking astronomy?
Frankie: Of course I know he's taking astronomy. I'm his mother.

Quote from Sue in Forced Family Fun (Part 1)

Sue: I actually wanted to talk to you about something else. You may not be aware, because I've been playing it pretty cool, but I'm sort of nervous about starting high school.
Frankie: Oh, honey. Everybody's nervous. But you have Carly, so...
Sue: But that's just it. See, Carly got this boyfriend, so she's going into high school practically an adult, and the only adult experience I have was the time I filled out the Cosmo sex quiz. I didn't know any of the answers. I didn't even understand the questions. I just filled in all B's and C's.

Quote from Frankie in Year of the Hecks

Police Officer: Going a little fast there.
Axl: T-h-e-r-e! [the officer shines the light in Axl's eyes] Ow.
Frankie: I-I'm really sorry, but I'm trying to get to my son. The thing is, I don't spend any time with him, and then I did, and then I left him, and now he's alone, and he could be lost or freezing, and it's all because we were trying to get him to stop reading.
Police Officer: Do I need to call social services here?
Frankie: No, that's okay. We're already in the system. No, I mean, it wasn't anything big, just me hitting him with a beer bottle. But I didn't really, see? It was trash day.
Mike: Excuse me. Officer? Maybe I can clear things up. [smiles]

Quote from Brick in The Legacy

Quote from Axl in Sorry Not Sorry

Frankie: Okay, I don't know where this is coming from. Your dad and I are very much in love.
Axl: Hmm, how do I put this? Um, Brick is a plant, and the terrarium of your anger is poisoning the soil with which he needs to grow.
Sue: Mm-hmm. Look, I know this is a lot to process, but the important thing is that you've heard it and, moving forward, you'll try to do better.
Axl: It's not all on you. I feel partly responsible for not being home on a daily basis to point out your flaws.
Sue: [sighs] Is that everything, Brick? Is there anything else you would like to add?
Brick: No. Thank you. I think this was really productive.
Axl: Oh, yeah. [the kids hug]

Quote from Mike in Change in the Air

Brick: I couldn't sleep anyway, it was so hot. When are we getting the air conditioner fixed? I tried packing myself in popsicles, but I woke up covered in ants.
Mike: I told you, you don't fix the air conditioner when it's hot. You wait till winter when the AC guys are desperate, and then you get a discount. That's why I'm going tomorrow to look at snowblowers.
Brick: Is that why you guys didn't buy us any school supplies?
Frankie: No. That we just forgot.
Mike: Look, you can get them in a couple weeks when they're cheap. Meantime, you can just borrow from friends.
Brick: Um, that'll be probably be more of a two-step process.
