Mike Quote #13

Quote from Mike in The Cheerleader

Frankie: [v.o.] Out here in the middle, people are straight shooters. They just say it like it is. Well, I got one of those types in my house as well.
Mike: [to Brick] Hell, yeah, you were a mistake. I mean, we're happy you're here now, but you were definitely a mistake.
Mike: [to Frankie] It's funny because you're not fat, but that skirt sure makes you look fat.
Mike: [to a young Sue] Ha. Who told you Scrappy went to a farm? He's not on a farm. He's dead.


 ‘The Cheerleader’ Quotes

Quote from Axl

Frankie: [v.o.] If the library fines were half a dryer, glasses were a whole dryer. But luckily, the Frugal Hoosier has an optical department. And no mirrors.
[Axl and Mike stand in front of Sue as she tries on pairs of glasses]
Axl: Dork. Dork. I would never stop punching you.
Mike: Knock it off. She's a young girl with emotions all over her surface... or something like that. Anyway, our job is to cheer her on.
Axl: [to Sue] Oh, my God. Those look so great. Seriously. I think you should really, really buy them.

Quote from Brick

[Brick walks over to Frankie holding a book, Sorrow's Destiny]
Brick: Mom. Which part of me is my hungering manhood?
[Mike takes the book and then hands it to Frankie]

Quote from Frankie

Frankie: I don't know if we're gonna be okay, Sue. I really don't. Frankly, I have no evidence that we will.
Axl: That's not what you're supposed to say.
Sue: Oh, I know. I know. I'm just supposed to pick you all up, and tell you everything's gonna be fine. But you know what, I don't know anymore! You wanna know the truth? Your dad's big on truth. Basically, our lives suck right now. I'm not gonna sugarcoat it. 2009 has been a rotten, rotten year. We can't afford a new dryer, we can't afford unexpired food. I can't even afford the LCD light-up angel that I ordered on the TV to surprise you all at Christmas. Surprise. If I don't sell a car, that means no job. That also means maybe no house. But the tornado will probably blow it all away anyway. Oh, my God, let's just pack it all in. Let's give you kids to Madonna or something. Your Dad and I will go live in a tent city somewhere. Because the truth is, we are screwed! [the kids and Mike are stunned] But it's fine. No, it... Everything's fine. We'll be fine. [sighs]
Mike: Frankie... We'll get through.
Frankie: [sobs] Yeah.
Frankie: [v.o.] Wow, who knew I was living with my own personal cheerleader? Mike was right. We would get through. Same as always.
