Quote from Frankie in Valentine's Day II

Frankie: [v.o.] I got to tell you, being banned wasn't all that bad. I had the day off of work, the house to myself, and a backlog of Oprahs waiting for me.
Axl: Hey, Mom.
Frankie: Axl. What are you doing here? I was just cleaning the cupboards.
Axl: It's a teacher in-service day.
Frankie: Well, if you don't have school, what are you doing out of bed?
Axl: Well, I was thinking maybe you could take me to the mall.
Frankie: You mean, like, drop you off?
Axl: Like... go inside.
Frankie: But our standard deal of not coming within 50 feet of you?
Axl: I'm allowing a one-time exception.
Frankie: Oh, really? What's the occasion?
Axl: Well, I started dating this chick Vanessa a week before Valentine's day, and now I'm on the hook to get her a present. Rookie mistake. And I was totally cracking under the pressure, but then I thought, "Hey, mom used to be a girl once. Maybe she could help me pick something out."
Frankie: So you're... asking me to do something with you? [Axl nods] Like, for real? Oh, Axl. Of course I'll go with you.
Axl: Mom? Do you want to put some clothes on?
Frankie: Oh, right. [laughs] Usually, I'm telling you that!


 ‘Valentine's Day II’ Quotes

Quote from Mike

Mike: Hey, hey, hey, hey! Hey! All right! That's it! That's it! We're shutting it down! Party's over! Here we go. You guys shouldn't be celebrating Valentine's Day anyway, because it's a scam cooked up by the greeting card companies. You know what you should be doing? You should be studying. 'Cause guess what they're doing in China right now? They are doing math and they're learning how to be C.E.O.S of greeting card companies so they can sell us Americans a heart-shaped load of crap!
[cut to Mike returning home:]
Mike: Banned.

Quote from Mike

Frankie: [v.o.] Certain things you can count on for Valentine's Day: flowers, candy, Mike ranting about flowers and candy...
Mike: I'm just saying it's not a real holiday. It's a scam cooked up by the greeting card companies, and everybody buys into it. Some college kid in an office building somewhere is gonna write a card telling me how I feel? I don't think so.
Frankie: You don't have to get me a card.
Mike: I'll get you your card. And what about the flowers? I got to bring flowers just 'cause it's February 14th? What if I want to bring you flowers on some other day of the year?
Frankie: You don't need to bring me flowers.
Mike: Yeah, I'm gonna be the one idiot in America who doesn't bring his wife flowers on Valentine's Day. Don't worry. You'll get your flowers.
Frankie: And while you're there, we need vacuum bags and a new plunger.

Quote from Brick

Frankie: Hey, Brick, you're slowing down. Come on. You got 30 kids in the class. You got to keep moving.
Brick: Have you guys seen these things? It's candy with words on it. Candy and words? Who thought of this?
Frankie: Brick, we got to sign your name to the card, stick it in the envelope with a couple of hearts, lick it. Come on. Brick, stick, lick, done.
Brick: When did they invent these? "Be mine"... So simple, yet so profound. "Love ya"... genius!
