Quote from Frankie in Winners and Losers

Frankie: Hey, Brick. I've got a big surprise. This Saturday, I am taking you to the book fair in Terre Haute.
Brick: But I'm gonna be in Chicago on Saturday.
Frankie: Oh, that's this weekend. Hmm. What should we do about that? Once-in-a-lifetime book fair or stinky old Chicago?
Brick: Well, despite the poor air quality and aging infrastructure, I think it'd still rather go to Chicago.
Frankie: Did I tell you about all the candy I'm gonna buy you?
Brick: Oh, in Chicago, we're going to an old-timey candy store.
Frankie: You know, there's a lot of bad things about Chicago. It's cold. There's crime. The Cubs.
Sean: Hey, Brickster. You pumped for that Chicago trip? Dottie's super stoked. Gonna be the trip of a lifetime.
Frankie: Uh, I don't think it is, Sean. There's a lot of other fun trips coming up. There's a trip to the waste recycling plant in April, so... yeah. Why don't you go practice?

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?
