Quote from Frankie in A Quarry Story

Frankie: Mike, look at this. Not only did I get my back pay, but I made two commissions!
Mike: What? How'd you do that?
Frankie: Okay. You know how Oprah's motto is "live your best life"?
Mike: Can't that woman just stay retired?
Frankie: Well, here's my motto now. "Don't try."
Mike: I thought that was always your motto.
Frankie: I did, too. Turns out this whole time I thought I wasn't trying, I was actually trying a teeny bit. The key is to not try at all.


 ‘A Quarry Story’ Quotes

Quote from Frankie

Frankie: Okay, Mike, I just stepped on a fork in the tub. How many times have we told the kids, we wash spoons in the tub, knives and forks in the bathroom sink?
Mike: It's just common sense.
Frankie: [sighs] This is crazy. We can't go on like this. We need a silverware caddy in the shower.
Mike: I might have something in the garage we can use. How 'bout that old ice bucket that says, "it's 5:00 somewhere"?
Frankie: Oh, you know what? Since the dishwasher's not working right now, we could use the caddy from there. We'll just hang it on the showerhead where the shampoo thing usually goes. That would be perfect! Are you sad right now? 'Cause I'm really sad.
Mike: Look. I know we wanted to save money, and we gave it our best shot, but despite how much I'm gonna miss this whole hose situation, it's time to fix the sink.

Quote from Brick

Brick: Gorillas... tigers...
Mike: Should we ask?
Frankie: If we don't, it'll just look bad when the school calls. Okay, what's going on, Brick?
Brick: Tigers... lions... Tarzan...
Frankie: Why are you telling us things that are in a jungle?
Brick: Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding! I was online doing research for my pyramid paper, and I found something called The $25,000 Pyramid. Then I started watching other game shows. Fascinating. My favorite's Match Game. Have you heard of Nipsy Russell? Hi-larious. And Adrienne Barbeau... That is one foxy lady. And they were all having so much fun at a time when things were tough. Seems like we could use a little of that around here.
Frankie: I stepped on a fork in my bathtub.
Brick: This is what I'm saying.

 Frankie Heck Quotes

Quote from The Christmas Tree

Brick: Hey, Mom. Can I interest you in a decorative crock-pot cozy? Now you can leave your crock-pot out where everyone can see and save yourself unwanted embarrassment. It's for the women's club. These glasses are the prize for being their top seller.
Frankie: Let me guess. You're using the cozy money to pay off the peppermint-bark people.
Brick: Exactly.
Frankie: Brick, you're running a Ponzi scheme.
Brick: A Ponzi-what, now?
Frankie: You're using money you don't have to pay off the debt you had before, and now you got to go into even more debt to pay off this debt. It's an endless cycle. You're never gonna catch up.
Brick: Isn't that what you guys do with your credit cards?
Frankie: Well, yeah, but we're gonna die before they catch us.

Quote from The Shirt

Frankie: All I asked was for you to clean the bathroom! How hard is that?
Brick: Well, if you want to do it properly, you have to get to the root of the problem.
Frankie: Whoa, whoa, whoa, Brick. We are not "root of the problem" people. The surface is where we live. You start chipping away and digging down to the root of everything, the whole place falls apart. The filth and grime is what's holding everything together. You want to see a video of how we fix things? We wipe, we slide, we shove, we close. If a drawer is too full to open, move on to the next one. Never open it again.
