Quote from Brick

Brick: Are you okay?
Axl: No, Brick, I'm not. I killed Aunt Edie.
Brick: I knew it! No one just drops dead at 96.

Quote from Axl

Axl: I didn't really kill her. Okay. Ugh. Look. Here's the thing. [sniffles] Ever since high school, whenever I had a test I wasn't ready for, or a paper due I didn't finish, I kinda used Aunt Edie to get out of it.
[flashback:]
Axl: Anyway, we just found out last night, so I think I'm gonna need a little more time on my philosophy paper.
Philosophy Professor: Of course. And just remember, Axl, it was your aunt's shell she left on Earth.
Axl: It was her shell. So, like, three extra weeks?
[present:]
Axl: Can't you see how guilty I feel about this?! If my hair wasn't such a perfect length, I could barely look at myself in the mirror. I used my aunt's life as a cheap excuse to get out of schoolwork, and by saying it so many times, I'm the reason she died. I killed her, Brick. I killed my aunt!

Quote from Brick

[As Frankie and Mike sleep on the train, Brick walks over and taps his mom on the shoulder]
Frankie: Stop patting me. It's over.
Brick: I made a friend.
Frankie: What? Where?
Brick: Here. He's this really cool guy named Travis, and he likes me.
Frankie: [gasps] Mike, wake up. Somebody likes Brick.
Mike: What? Who?
Brick: It turns out I'm cool on trains.
Mike: That's great, Brick.
Frankie: So what do you and Travis talk about?
Brick: Nothing. I figured out all I have to do is repeat what the other person says and then add the word "cool." All these years I've been repeating myself when I should've been repeating other people. [whispers] Repeating other people. Travis reminded me to have breakfast with him when the dining car opens. Can I go?
Mike: If he's buying, order extra and bring some back.
Brick: Bring some back. Cool. Magic, am I right?

Quote from Mommapalooza

Sue: Okay, so, what do we do? Dad didn't give us enough drywall to fix a hole this big. He's gonna freak out.
Brick: I'm not gonna lie. It's gonna be really rough for you.
Sue: Me? You're the one who did this.
Brick: Well, you're the older sister who left her little brother to do major home repair on his own. Besides, if Dad flips out, I can just play the quirk card. I shrug, I look confused, throw in a few whoops and whispers, lick something if I have to... I'm off scot-free.
Sue: Oh, my God. You're diabolical.
Brick: I am not diabolical. [whispers] Diabolical. [normal voice] It's so easy. [whispers] It's so easy. [normal voice] Okay, that one wasn't planned.

Quote from Flirting with Disaster

Brick: The Silligans come from a drier planet and are a rock-type people, whereas the Vernegos' habitat is a lusher, forest area...
Sue: Brick, enough! You have been droning on and on since we left. I am trying to concentrate. Aunt Edie's car is 3 feet wider than any car I've ever driven.
Brick: Sorry. Well, do you wanna listen to a book on tape?
Sue: Please. [tape rattling]
Brick: [on tape] But Soran would have to navigate the Asteroid belts of Norox without a working Pernovian laser. [whispers] Pernovian laser.
Sue: Is that you?
Brick: Uh-huh! I recorded the entire series on tape. I play them when my eyes are too tired from reading.
Brick: [on tape] As professor Faxon's prophecy foretold, Soran's quest...

Quote from Guess Who's Coming to Frozen Dinner

Brick: I'm beginning to feel like a literary character I've recently discovered. You see, there's this boy with a very round head, and he has a dog that sleeps on top of his doghouse. Apparently, he was a World War I fighter pilot. If you can suspend disbelief, it all works.
Sue: You're talking about Charlie Brown.
Brick: Then you've heard of it!
Sue: Everyone has.
Brick: Great. So I'm the last to know. Will the indignities never end? Axl's getting paychecks, you're on a nonstop vacation. Why is it never my turn? What does the universe have against me? [a baby picture of Brick falls off the wall and shatters]
Sue: It's okay, Brick! We can put up another picture of you.
Brick: There is no other picture of me.
