Quote from Brick

Brick: For years, you've ignored me. You've wandered away when I'm talking. Often when I'm sharing something I feel is important, your eyes glaze over or Axl goes "blah, blah, blah." So now you're finally going to listen to what I have to say.
Mike: We got to get a calendar system.
Brick: I spent a lot of time thinking on how I should kick things off, and I believe I've landed on something that's a real crowd-pleaser. Railroad gauges. You've probably always wondered how we ended up with the 4-feet, 8.5-inch gauge. Well, it all begins with the chariots of imperial Rome...

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.
