 ‘TV or Not TV’ Quotes

Quote from Frankie

Mike: How in the world do you justify spending the money on cable?
Frankie: Because I thought we agreed to spin the wheel. You know, go for what we want and take the risk that it'll all work out. I thought we were both spinners, Mike.
Mike: Oh, that's just great. Sue's gonna be a model, and Axl's gonna be a rock star, and some miracle is going to fall into our lap and solve all our financial problems, so let's just get TV. You're delusional.
Frankie: Well, you're un-American.
Mike: What?
Frankie: That's right. Because real Americans are raised on instant gratification, and the optimism that if they mess up, things will somehow all work out. That's what makes America great. How sad to be you. In your dark, little no-TV world.

Quote from Frankie

Steve: All right, long story short, you're spending more than you earn. So we need to find places you can cut back. So we're looking for unnecessary expenses.
Frankie: Okay, okay. Category is unnecessary expenses. Insurance, phone. Mike, help me.
Mike: Gas.
Frankie: Heat, cleaning products...
Mike: Gas.
Frankie: Said that already.
Mike: Orthodontist.
Frankie: Nice.
Steve: No, those are necessary expenses.

Quote from Mommapalooza

Sue: Okay, so, what do we do? Dad didn't give us enough drywall to fix a hole this big. He's gonna freak out.
Brick: I'm not gonna lie. It's gonna be really rough for you.
Sue: Me? You're the one who did this.
Brick: Well, you're the older sister who left her little brother to do major home repair on his own. Besides, if Dad flips out, I can just play the quirk card. I shrug, I look confused, throw in a few whoops and whispers, lick something if I have to... I'm off scot-free.
Sue: Oh, my God. You're diabolical.
Brick: I am not diabolical. [whispers] Diabolical. [normal voice] It's so easy. [whispers] It's so easy. [normal voice] Okay, that one wasn't planned.
