Frankie Quote #1953

Quote from Frankie in Great Heckspectations

Frankie: I'm worried. And that should tell you something... that the thing I'm most worried about is not Brick driving.
Mike: What are you talking about?
Frankie: Oh, my God. I forced him. I forced him to go to prom, and now the weird kids aren't weird anymore. He's gonna be out there on his own with no nerd posse and who knows what's gonna happen? Should we get in the car and follow him?
Mike: Frankie, our son, who has a driver's license, is heading to prom with someone who he can legitimately call his girlfriend. Did you ever in your life think that was gonna happen? [Frankie exhales] I think he's doing fine.
Frankie: But did you see how good Cindy looked? Somebody at that dance is gonna swoop in there and snatch her up and Brick'll be too busy reading the "Maximum Occupancy" sign to notice.
Mike: Is he still doing that?
Frankie: Oh, yeah. He was doing it last week at Joe's Subs. If two more people came in, he was gonna make us leave. [Mike laughs]

Quote from Brick

Frankie: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. What are you doing?
Brick: Oh, this? Well, you told me I have to do a promposal, so I'm going as Bernie the Bookmark. I'm gonna wait till lunch so there's a big crowd, then I'm gonna ask Cindy to "save a place" for me at prom. It'll be a new "chapter" in our relationship. Pretty good, huh?

Quote from Mike

Frankie: What do you mean you got your driver's license?!
Brick: Well, you guys weren't around, so I asked Sue to take me. I passed!
Mike: Yeah, we saw that.
Frankie: Brick, that is not okay! If your parents say no to something, that doesn't mean you go get your sister to do it!
Brick: I really thought you'd be fine with this. I mean, didn't I prove my trustworthiness when I stole back our car from the Glossners?
Mike: I'm sorry, but there are steps to getting your driver's license. We gotta put you on our insurance, make sure the car is tuned up, alert the neighbors...
Frankie: What did you think you were gonna do, Brick, secretly drive around for the next 75 years without us noticing? Sorry, pal. You're grounded. Two weeks.
Mike: That means no library, no seeing Cindy after school, no... I don't know what else you do.

Quote from Frankie

Brick: Oh, well. At least it gets me out of prom this weekend.
Frankie: Wait, what? Prom? I thought that was just for juniors and seniors.
Brick: No, 'cause of budget cuts, there's only one dance a year now, so everybody gets to go.
Frankie: Well, you have to go to prom.
Brick: I don't care about prom.
Frankie: Well, you should. It's a major life event. You don't want to miss that. I mean, prom at the same time you actually have a girlfriend? What are the odds of that ever happening again?
Brick: But I'm punished.
Frankie: Well, now you're unpunished. He has to go to prom, Mike.
Brick: You're sending very conflicting messages.
Mike: What's not to get? You're grounded until Saturday and then you will go to prom, mister.
