Frankie Quote #988

Quote from Frankie in Winners and Losers

Frankie: Hi. Frankie Heck. We met at-
Connie: Yeah, I know who you are. We have all of our chaperones.
Mr. Walker: Mrs. Heck. My parent contract clearly stated that once you have said good-bye to your child, you have 23 seconds to depart the premises.
Frankie: Got it. I-I just wanted to see if he had a buddy yet. If you could pair him with someone responsible maybe a girl.
Connie: We're good here. Let's move it out!
Frankie: Also, I packed all orange clothes so he'll be easy to spot. He wanders. And if someone could check when he comes out of the bathroom, I can't 100% guarantee that he'll zip up. And if there's priceless art like in a museum or something, be prepared to meet the guards now, because he will touch it.
Mr. Walker: Walk faster. Okay! Here we go, people. We're 34 seconds late.

Quote from Darrin

Mike: So I understand you're interested in taking out Sue.
Darrin: Yes, sir.
Mike: I just wanna remind you that I work at a quarry, and I have access to dynamite.
Darrin: Yeah, I know. You have the coolest job.
Mike: I think you're missing what I'm saying here, Darrin. I'm saying if you're gonna go out with Sue, when you're with her, I want you to picture my face.
Darrin: No offense, sir, but that's sort of a mood killer. I really like her, sir, and I will treat her with the utmost respect, and I would never do anything to hurt her.
Mike: Ugh. All right. I guess, fine.
Darrin: Thanks, Mr. Heck. I really appreciate the vote of confidence. And I'm gonna take you up on that offer to come see the quarry.

Quote from Brick

Frankie: Look, Brick, here's the thing. If I can't be a chaperone, I just don't feel comfortable letting you go.
Brick: Look, Mom, I understand you're nervous. But I read books, and in every one, the parents are always nervous about the hero before he goes off on his great adventure. But he always goes, and he's scared, but he faces the challenge, and ultimately triumphs.
Frankie: Well, I watch TV, and in all the crime shows, little kids die.
Brick: Fine. I guess I'll just be that kid who didn't get to go because his mom was too worried about him. That'll be fun.
Frankie: [sighs] All right, fine. You can go.
Brick: Yes! I'm finally gonna be like everyone else. [whispers] Everyone else. Whoop!

Quote from Frankie

Frankie: Yeah. He's not goin'.
Mike: What?
Frankie: Are you kidding me? This is Brick we're talking about. Brick alone in Chicago?
Mike: He won't be alone. He'll be with 30 other kids.
Frankie: Yeah, for about five seconds until he wanders onto a bus or an L train or a boat or a beam 30 stories over the city. Have you not seen Mr. Magoo?
