Quote from Brick
Frankie: It's just that your dad and Axl are like two little peas in a pod, and, well, I don't know. Lately, I've just been feeling like there's no room for me in that pod, like I'm out. You know, I'm... I'm invisible to the family.
Brick: Oh. I know.
Frankie: No, no, no. This is different.
Brick: Is it? They didn't bring me food from Taco Jason's either. But I sucked it up, had a bowl of mayonnaise, and went to bed. Mom, can I give you some advice? As a person who's been shoved aside and ignored most of his life, I realized it's important not to dwell on the negative. If I let stuff get me down, like having only one friend or everybody missing all my birthdays or having no one show up to my parent-teacher conferences or everybody rolling their eye...
Frankie: Okay, I got it, Brick.
Brick: I don't take it personally. The truth is, if you go through life expecting other people to make things good for you, you're gonna be disappointed. And the only person you can depend on is yourself. And I guess I'm lucky 'cause I like myself. So whenever I'm with myself, I'm happy. I've never once let myself down.
Frankie: [sighs] I have.
Quote from Frankie
Frankie: Ooh, Taco Jason's. What'd you get me?
Mike: W... You weren't with us. We didn't think. It was really just a last-minute thing.
Frankie: It's 6:30, and you didn't bother to check in. You just went to Taco Jason's and got something for yourselves.
Axl: [mouth full] We didn't know you'd want anything.
Frankie: [sighs] Okay. Fine. Let's just clear up any confusion. In the future, if you are ever out somewhere getting food at dinnertime, I would like to be included. And while we're at it, if I am ever drowning in the ocean, please pull me out. And if you ever step over what appears to be my dead body, please take my pulse.
Mike: Want some of my burrito?
Frankie: No, I don't want the burrito! It's too spicy. I like the Quesadilla Gringo, which I would have ordered if anybody had bothered to call me.
Frankie Heck Quotes
Quote from The Christmas Tree
Brick: Hey, Mom. Can I interest you in a decorative crock-pot cozy? Now you can leave your crock-pot out where everyone can see and save yourself unwanted embarrassment. It's for the women's club. These glasses are the prize for being their top seller.
Frankie: Let me guess. You're using the cozy money to pay off the peppermint-bark people.
Frankie: Brick, you're running a Ponzi scheme.
Brick: A Ponzi-what, now?
Frankie: You're using money you don't have to pay off the debt you had before, and now you got to go into even more debt to pay off this debt. It's an endless cycle. You're never gonna catch up.
Brick: Isn't that what you guys do with your credit cards?
Frankie: Well, yeah, but we're gonna die before they catch us.
Quote from The Shirt
Frankie: All I asked was for you to clean the bathroom! How hard is that?
Brick: Well, if you want to do it properly, you have to get to the root of the problem.
Frankie: Whoa, whoa, whoa, Brick. We are not "root of the problem" people. The surface is where we live. You start chipping away and digging down to the root of everything, the whole place falls apart. The filth and grime is what's holding everything together. You want to see a video of how we fix things? We wipe, we slide, we shove, we close. If a drawer is too full to open, move on to the next one. Never open it again.
