Frankie Quote #1744

Quote from Frankie in Ovary and Out

Frankie: It's just one minute, you're driving around with your kids, listening to Elmo sing "I Don't Want To Live On The Moon," and the next minute, your doctor's telling you he can't find your ovaries. And it was all just funny to him, but it's not funny. That moment should be marked in some way. No, I mean it. I mean, everybody makes a big deal when you get married and have a baby, but nobody's having a ceremony for your shriveled ovaries. You know what I mean?
Mike: Like when a player retires, and they hoist his jersey into the rafters.
Frankie: Yes! Exactly. They just... They deserve more respect. [sniffles] You know? I mean, they may not have been the flashiest ovaries, but they got the job done.
Mike: Hey, they gave us three great kids. [Frankie sobs] Well, at any given time, two of the three of them were great... or at least good. Hey, no one's in jail.
Frankie: They deserve something, some sort of send-off for all their years of service. They deserve more of an ending. They deserve... a goodbye. [sniffles, sighs]
Mike: They had a good run. [chuckles] I think Ernie sang "I Don't Want To Live On The Moon."
Frankie: [chuckles] No. Ernie? Was it Ernie?
Mike: I think it was.
Frankie: What'd I say?
Mike: Elmo.
Frankie: Elmo.


 ‘Ovary and Out’ Quotes

Quote from Brick

Brick: Well, we got a great turnout at Font Club. Unfortunately, most of the kids are just in it for the credit. But there is this one guy, Gibson. He's a savant. He's a font savant. He's a safont!
Frankie: Brick, you're on your own for dinner tonight.
Brick: I just got to raise my game. I got too relaxed... You know, a little sloppy, a little lazy. So this is good. It's like when a new sports star comes in and forces the established sports star to up his sport.
Mike: That's right! That's what I'm talking about. [tries to high-five Brick; Brick misses]
Brick: [laughs] I'm gonna check out the new font websites, see what the kids are using these days.

Quote from Frankie

Frankie: [sighs] Well, I'm fine.
Mike: You sound great.
Frankie: No, I am. My ovaries are fine. Unfortunately, they're like raisins. And not the cute, plump California ones that dance and wear gloves. They're like the hard, shriveled, sad, deformed ones in the Raisin Flakes we get from the Frugal Hoosier.
Mike: Well, this can't be a shock, Frankie. I mean, you are 50...
Frankie: I know what I am, thanks. [exhales sharply] You don't get it. Because they don't shut men's factories downs. They only shut women's factories down.
Mike: What factories?
Frankie: This factory. I mean, I liked knowing it was open. Now it's all red-tagged and padlocked with bulldozers in the parking lot.
Mike: I feel like anything I say here is gonna be wrong, so... you want to just hug me?

Quote from Brick

Brick: Dad, I need your opinion on this. I finally figured out why there are only three people in Font Club.
Mike: Because it's Font Club?
Brick: Exactly! It's a "Club," not an "Activity." But I petitioned the school to grant Font Club "Activity" status, so now kids can get community-service credit if they join. Now, let me walk you through the different fonts. I suggest you close your eyes between each one as a palate cleanser.
Mike: How 'bout I close my eyes for all of 'em?
Brick: Now, the first font in contention is Caviar Dreams. Clean, modern... [cellphone rings]
