Sue: Brick, enough! You have been droning on and on since we left. I am trying to concentrate. Aunt Edie's car is 3 feet wider than any car I've ever driven.
Brick: Sorry. Well, do you wanna listen to a book on tape?
Sue: Please. [tape rattling]
Brick: [on tape] But Soran would have to navigate the Asteroid belts of Norox without a working Pernovian laser. [whispers] Pernovian laser.
Sue: Is that you?
Brick: Uh-huh! I recorded the entire series on tape. I play them when my eyes are too tired from reading.
Brick: [on tape] As professor Faxon's prophecy foretold, Soran's quest...

Quote from Brick in Escape Orson

Brick: Mom! Did you see that guy? That's David S. Rosenthal! The author of the Planet Nowhere book series as well as the official Out of this World Cookbook... How to Get Your Silligan to Eat Their Vegetables?
Frankie: [scoffs] What? No, it's not. It's Milt. Brick, I don't think a billionaire author is going to be doing the Orson Escape Room on New Year's Day. Why would he be here?

Quote from Brick

Sue: Oh, my God. Did you see the guy dressed as Professor Faxon's robot? He had on working lights! I wonder if he had to plug in during lunch. Hmm. Hey, you're being kind of quiet. Are you thinking about your key?
Brick: Yeah, sorta.
Sue: But... I don't get it. Didn't you have fun today?
Brick: It was one of the best days I've had in a long time.
Sue: So what's the problem?
Brick: It's you.
Sue: Me?
Brick: Yeah. Sue, today was amazing. I know you were forced to take me, but still, we hung out together, you talked to me. I mean, you understand Planet Nowhere now. I feel like someone in this family finally gets me, and it's right when you're about to leave for college.
Sue: Aw, Brick!
Brick: What's it gonna be like when you're gone?
Sue: Hey, I am gonna miss you tons. But you know what? You'll come visit me at college. I know Axl has the whole "no relatives" policy at his place, but mine is gonna be the opposite. You have to visit me.
Brick: Really?
Sue: Does a Silligan need iron oxide to survive?
Brick: [on tape] And with the Vernegos' triumph and the planet orbiting towards a new moon, Princess Kalakare bade goodbye to her home world, knowing not only would her loved ones miss her, but the entire planet as well, and they would all look forward to her return.

Brick Quotes

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.

Quote from Hecks on a Train

Quote from Guess Who's Coming to Frozen Dinner

Brick: I'm beginning to feel like a literary character I've recently discovered. You see, there's this boy with a very round head, and he has a dog that sleeps on top of his doghouse. Apparently, he was a World War I fighter pilot. If you can suspend disbelief, it all works.
Sue: You're talking about Charlie Brown.
Brick: Then you've heard of it!
Sue: Everyone has.
Brick: Great. So I'm the last to know. Will the indignities never end? Axl's getting paychecks, you're on a nonstop vacation. Why is it never my turn? What does the universe have against me? [a baby picture of Brick falls off the wall and shatters]
Sue: It's okay, Brick! We can put up another picture of you.
Brick: There is no other picture of me.
