Brick Quote #583

Quote from Brick in The Table

Frankie: Hey, Brick. How's the podcast going?
Brick: I got to tell you, it's a real grind. You got to churn out show after show after show.
Frankie: Haven't you only done like three?
Brick: Yeah. Show after show after show.
Mike: What are you doing it for, then?
Brick: Well, I do it for the fan. Without the fan, I'm nothing. You'd better finish up that vacuuming. I'm gonna have a hot mic in a minute. We're talking Garamond today. How am I gonna get fired up for that?

Quote from Axl

Axl: Dude, like, how many different things do we have to write checks for? Why is there even a gas bill? Hmm? You don't put gas in a house. It's not a car.
Hutch: What about water? Why should we pay for that? Stuff falls out of the sky for free.
Axl: Yeah. They're making money off God. That's just wrong.

Quote from Brick

Brick: [into microphone] Check, check. Hello? Hello?
Frankie: You're not trying to face-time the president again, are you?
Brick: No. That's ridiculous. I'm starting my own podcast.
Frankie: Hey, that could be fun.
Brick: It's for the people who are interested in fonts.
Frankie: Oh. Well, why don't you do that and the president thing and see who answers first.
Brick: [into microphone] Hi. I'm Brick Heck, and this is... "The FontCast"... Or "Footloose and Fontsy free." Still working on the title. Feel free to call in with suggestions. Today's topic is the raging debate of font versus typeface and Times New Roman's place in all of it. And then, in our last segment, we'll get into the issue of kerning, which, for those of you who don't know... [chuckling] As if... is the spacing between characters. Now, this is a very hot topic inside of the font community...

Quote from Hecks on a Train

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.
