 ‘Hecks on a Train’ Quotes

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.
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?
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?
