Quote from Frankie in Mother's Day

Frankie: [v.o.] Mike's right. Mother's Day is sort of a made-up holiday. It doesn't always live up to the hype. And that's what led me to create a new holiday, one that's turned out to be one of my favorites. I call it The Day After Mother's Day.
Waitress: Can I get you anything else?
Frankie: No, I'm so good.
Frankie: [v.o.] Mother's Day is for them. The Day After Mother's Day is for me. It's kind of like Father's Day for mothers.

Quote from Axl in Mother's Day II

Mike: How could we forget Mother's Day again? I count on you guys to remember this stuff.
Axl: How was I supposed to know it's even on a Sunday this year? I'm not a calendar.

Quote from Frankie in Mother's Day II

Frankie: [v.o.] So Mother's Day was here, and I woke up to a sound I'd never heard before... Silence.
Frankie: Mike? Axl? Brick? Sue?
Frankie: [v.o.] I didn't know what to do first. Read... Sleep... Ooh, watch Oprah... Ooh, maybe I'd even go to the bathroom without someone pounding on the door. Damn it. Don't have to go. Since I accidentally borrowed a few People magazines from my last dentist visit, I decided to read. And then I remembered something, I'm blind. But when I went to the junk drawer for my glasses, stupid thing was stuck. But you know what? Not a problem. I had a whole free day ahead of me, and I'd been wanting to fix that drawer for weeks. An hour later, I was done. Now I just had to put the giant screwdriver back where it belonged, and the rest of the day was mine.
Frankie: Oh, there's that flashlight. [sighs]
Frankie: [v.o.] So I decided to go through the batteries because you gotta have a flashlight in the house with batteries. But when I went to put it in Mike's nightstand, it was stuck, too. And then I found something you never want to find in your husband's nightstand. Something I couldn't ignore. An unpaid gas bill.
Frankie: [on the phone] Billing! Billing! I pressed "4." I want to talk to a human. Human! Yuck.
Frankie: [v.o.] And then after defrosting the freezer and scotchgarding the winter shoes, I don't even know how I ended up here.
Frankie: Crap. [pulls watch out of the toilet] Oh, no!
Frankie: [v.o.] It can't be 7:45! This can't be happening. I blew my whole Mother's Day.

Quote from Axl

Axl: Oh, my God, this conversation is so boring, yet just loud enough that I can't sleep through it.

Quote from Frankie

Sue: I'll tell you one thing, I'm never having kids.
Frankie: What? Why would you say that?
Sue: Ugh, it just seems hard. I couldn't handle it the way you do. You're good at it.
Frankie: See, now, that's why you'll love having kids. Same reason I do. Because after a rough day, one of them will come in, give you a hug, and say something like that.
Sue: But aren't we the cause of the rough day?
Frankie: Well, you can't overthink it.

Quote from Pat

Frankie: I'm sorry if I drove an hour and a half to be with my mother on Mother's Day. I had no idea it would be an inconvenience. I just thought it would make you happy.
Pat: Frankie, I am never alone in this house. Your dad is always here, asking me about this, asking me about that. "Can I eat this?" "Where's my raincoat?" Now he's out with his possums, and I just wanted a minute to frost my damn hair, and drink my damn wine and listen to my damn music without getting anyone anything, or making anybody any grilled cheese sandwiches with potato chips in the middle.
Frankie: Oh, my God. I'll bet your sciatic nerve isn't really acting up. I'll bet you just made that up as an excuse to not see me.
Pat: Oh, come on, you know how sciatica is. It comes and goes.
Frankie: Oh, I don't know. You were boogying down pretty hard there, Lady Flash.
Pat: It comes and goes.
