Quote from Axl in Major Anxiety

Axl: [sighs] But I just got all B's, and now this? When does it end?!
Hutch: Wait. Why'd you come to college?
Axl: Because I was done with high school. That's where you go. So now I've got till the end of the week to decide what I'm doing with the rest of my life? Well, I suppose there's some magic book with all the majors in it that tells me what I'm supposed to be.
Hutch: There is. You've been using it for a plate.

Quote from Axl

Sue: Axl. What are you doing up here?
Axl: Sometimes I come up here to think... And occasionally throw things.
Sue: Wait a second. Do you ever throw...
Axl: Acorns at your head? Yes. All the time. [groans] What am I doing with my life? It was so much easier when I wanted to be a fireman or a superhero. God! I wish I was still 17.

Quote from Brick

Brick: Mom, Dad, I've decided I'd like to be popular.
Frankie: Okay.
Mike: Not sure that's really couch-worthy.
Brick: I've noticed lately that all of the other boys seem to get picked up together. I don't know where they're going, but they laugh and slap each other on the back and treat each other with a lot of camaraderie and bonhomie.
Mike: Well... Bonhomie does not grow on trees.
Brick: It looks very enjoyable. And I'm thinking I might want to participate in that kind of thing. I know I'm not very good at the social stuff, so I would appreciate any tips you could offer.
Frankie: Okay. I know you love your books, but maybe you should put them down once in a while and talk to people... You know, like at lunch or parties or at that class we send you to to teach you how to... talk to people.
Brick: The thing is, I've always enjoyed reading by myself at lunch, but lately, when I do it, it feels... Lonely.
Frankie: Aw, Brick. I'm sorry. But here's the thing... it's never too late. You know, maybe if you tried just a little small talk with... [Brick walks off] Brick. [Mike unmutes the TV] Mike!
Mike: He left. I thought we were done.

 Axl Heck Quotes

Quote from Bat Out of Heck

Mike: What's your problem?
Axl: You're still treating me like a kid! I don't need you to tell me how to do things anymore. You're telling me all the time. You're making me nuts. And I know I'm the younger lion and I'm challenging you and we're supposed to "lock horns"...
Mike: Lions don't have horns.
Axl: You don't need to tell me that lions don't have horns!
Mike: Well, you just said...
Axl: I know lions don't have horns. I just want to drive my own car.
Mike: Look, I'm older than you. I know you think you know best, but there's still a lot more you have to learn, and it's my job to teach you. It's been my job your whole life!
Axl: Okay, so, is that how it's gonna be, like, forever? 'Cause you'll always be older than me, and Grandpa Big Mike will always be older than you, and there's a guy in Jasper who's like 103. He'll always be older than all of us. Maybe he should drive us home.
