Frankie Quote #1901

Quote from Frankie in The Other Man

Mike: Axl, come on! Let's go! Game starts in 15 minutes.
Axl: Sorry, Dad. Lexie just called, and she's back from Colorado. See ya! [exits]
Frankie: [pats the spot next to her on the couch] Here. Okay. [Mike sighs] This is Outlander. I'm pretty deep into it, but I think you can catch up. That's Claire, and she's a World War II nurse who magically falls through stones into 1770-something England.
Mike: How can she fall through stones? They're not porous.
Frankie: Some women do a fairy dance, and it just happens. Just watch it. You'll like it. There's battle scenes, and men fight with swords.
Frankie: [v.o.] You know, it's silly to get jealous of people in your family. So they love each other more one week. You know, the next week, they're just gonna do something to piss each other off. But the point is, I played it cool, and now I have my husband back.
Frankie: Do you have to sit so close? There's a whole big couch here.

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

Brick: What's this?
Frankie: I got you a little something.
Brick: You got me a piece of birthday cake?
Frankie: No, I got you seven... [Brick chuckles] one for every birthday I've missed.
Frankie & waiters: [sing] Happy birthday to you Happy birthday to you Happy birthday, dear Brick Happy birthday to you [applause, laughter] [talks] You know, Brick, I may have blown some birthdays, but you're never ignored in my heart.
Brick: I know.
Frankie: All right.
Brick: Do I have to have the carrot cake? I'm not a fan.
Frankie: No. We'll just eat the frosting off it and take it home to your dad and Axl. [both chuckle]

Quote from Frankie

Frankie: Ooh, Taco Jason's. What'd you get me?
Axl: Uh...
Frankie: Seriously?
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.
