Quote from Axl in While You Were Sleeping

Axl: We sold 20 jars of this barbecue sauce, so if that's not a sign I should drop out of college, I don't know what is.
Mike: Yeah, well... [turns the stove off] Take this is a sign that that's not happening.
Axl: What...
Mike: Heck Brothers are done.
Axl: If Paul Newman had you for a dad, he never would have invented salad dressing, and no one would know who he is. Dream squasher!

Quote from Axl

Mike: Okay, Axl, you've wasted enough time on this. Don't you have some schoolwork you should be doing?
Axl: How should I know? I haven't been to class. [scoffs]
Mike: What?
Axl: Dad, this is more important than any class. At a certain point, a person learns all they need to know, and classes just get in the way. As a matter of fact, I might not even be going back to college in the fall.
Mike: Oh, you'll be going back to college a lot sooner than the fall. You're going tomorrow.
Axl: Come on, think about all the people who dropped out of college and made it big. Mark Zuckerberg...
Brick: Mm-hmm.
Axl: Bill Gates, Jean-Claude Van Damme.
Mike: There's a lot of highway between a computer that changes the world and barbecue sauce in a bag.

Quote from Axl

Brick: You know, there's a million books about how to deal with your kids, but there's no books about how to deal with your parents.
Axl: Hey, you might be onto something. Forget barbecue sauce. That could be our next project.
Brick: Really?
Axl: Yeah. You like books. You could write it, and I'd look good on the cover. "How to Deal with your Problem Parents" by the Heck Brothers. "Chapter one... Living with a Dream Squasher."
Brick: Mm-hmm.
Axl: [laughs] "Chapter two... Living with a Nag."
Brick: That's Mom.
Axl: Yeah. "Chapter three... Living with a Nag and a Dream Squasher."
Brick: So, both of them.

Quote from Sean Donahue

Sean: Surprise, Susie Q, I've got good news. Someone I know is going to her prom.
Sue: What?
Sean: My mom was talking to your mom, and she said you didn't have a date, so I rescheduled a test and bailed on the intramural flag football championship and drove straight down here from Notre Dame 'cause I was not about to let Sue Heck not go to her senior prom.
Sue: Oh, um, Sean, that is so nice. So nice. But someone I work with actually asked me to prom, and I said yes!
Sean: Oh! Okay. That's fine. I'll just drive back. I might stop by and have a little chat with my mom about communication first, but it's all good. The important thing is, you're going to prom with someone else.
Sue: I am so, so sorry. I really...
Sean: No, that's okay. I'm a Donahue. I will smile through this 'cause we smile through everything.
Sue: Okay, well, um, I'm so sorry, again. I'm so sorry. That was so nice. Sorry. [closes door]
Sean: [o.s.] Mom!
