Axl Quote #1179

Quote from Axl in Eyes Wide Open

Axl: Yeah, you see, the power all comes from your core when you lift off. Unless you're doing one of those handstand-y dives, which is called an "upside-downer." There's a little bit more of, like... [water bottle spills]
Hutch: Hey, man! Watch it!
Axl: Whoa. Oh, it's just water.
Hutch: Which leaves water marks.
Axl: Dude, we lived in a 'Bago without a roof. I mean, we once left a sofa in the woods for like two weeks.
Hutch: I know, but my stuff's nicer now.
Axl: Oh, right, I'm sorry. I forgot... the table is a hand-me-down from Beyoncé.
Hutch: Well, I'm just saying that, for an Olympic diver, you seem kinda clumsy.
Axl: Well, I'm just saying that, for Beyoncé's cousin, it seems a little weird the coolest club you could get us into last night was the dueling-pianos bar.
Hutch: Mm-hmm. You know, I was wondering... Now that you're done with the whole Olympic-diving thing, what are you up to? 'Cause I was at this baked-potato place, and I swear, the guy working the counter looked just like you.

Quote from Frankie

Frankie: Oh, is it hard? Is it too hard? I do it every day. And... silverware up, sharp knives down.
Axl: No. Oh! Daddy! Help me! She's a crazy person!
Mike: What's going on?
Frankie: He's 23 years old and living in our house... He should know how to load the dishwasher.
Mike: What do you mean? He's been loading the dishwasher for years.
Frankie: Yeah, and never correctly. He just throws everything in here like a big mess. That's why we have chipped bowls, our Tupperware is melted. The Spider-Man and Flintstone glasses rubbed against each other, so now we have no nice glasses for company. As long as he is living in this house, he's gonna learn to do things right. Don't you help him.
Axl: Ugh! [dishes clatter] My brain hurts. I need a break.
Frankie: Oh, fine. You can't take it, go cool off. And pick up your socks! For every stinky sock I find lying around there, I'm gonna leave a bra.

Quote from Axl

Man: So, the pay is bad, but I get my summers off.
Axl: Hmm.
Man: And what do you do?
Axl: Well, I kind of just retired.
Man: Really?
Axl: Yeah... From Olympic diving. Trained with Greg Louganis, maybe you've heard of him? Probably the greatest diver in history. I mean, I'm not that good... I'm ranked, like, eighth in the world. But I didn't win any medals or anything, so don't look it up.
Man: Wow. Uh, what's Rio like?
Axl: Great movie. Hilarious. Why?
Man: 'Cause that's where the Olympics were.

Quote from Brick

Frankie: What did you just do?
Brick: You heard her... Those threats were from Cindy! Those threats were from the lady I love! She clearly wants me back!
Frankie: No, no, no, no, no. We put too much work into getting this fish in the boat. Besides, Lilah is lovely and smart and normal and she seems to really like you.
Mike: And she eats cereal. We don't have to buy her shrimp.
Brick: But she's so much work. And with Cindy, things just come so naturally. You know Cindy... She's one in a million.
Mike: I'd go higher.
Brick: I blew it and broke up with her and thought I lost her forever, but now I have hope. I'm walking on air!
