Mike Quote #868
Mike: Sue, you got to come clean. You're too young to be in debt. It's different for us. We have a long-range financial plan where we die before we have to pay anybody off. But you don't have that cushion.
Quote from Sue
Mike: Hang on a sec. Where's all this money coming from?
Sue: Well, I've been using my Spudsy's money, and I popped all the quarters out of my 50 states collector's book, and I've been donating plasma. I'm not exactly sure what plasma is, and I don't know if you need it, but, from the way I've been feeling, I'm guessing you do.
Quote from Brick
Brick: Can you sign this form saying you take full responsibility for the school camera, editing equipment, the sound equipment, and lighting packet while it's in my possession?
Frankie: No, we will not.
Brick: Well, then I'll have to do that signature Axl taught me, 'cause I really need it for this project I'm doing for film class. Oh, heads up... I'm working on a shoestring budget, so I'm gonna be shooting it entirely in the house.
Mike: A horror movie, is it?
Brick: Well, the assignment is to take an important piece of film history and interpret it as our own. I'm thinking either Battleship Potemkin or Knots Landing. I love Knots Landing. I binge-watched all 14 seasons when we inherited that box of Aunt Edie's old tapes. Now, I know what you're thinking... Sure, Battleship Potemkin was named the greatest film of all time, but Knots Landing just has the undefinable "it." Plus it's one of the few true historical records we have of the 1980s.
Frankie: The '80s weren't that long ago, Brick.
Mike: It was 30-some years ago.
Frankie: Holy crap.
Brick: Well, I better get on it. I'll be in Sue's room, scouting locations. Also, I'm still on the fence, but the episode I'm looking at may require a small car explosion.
Quote from Not Your Brother's Drop Off
Mike: How you doing balancing the checkbook?
Sue: Well, I must have done it wrong. I have your balance at minus $11.
Mike: No, you did it right. It's us who did it wrong. [Frankie and Mike high-five]
Quote from Survey Says...
Mike: You know when I was happiest? I mean really happy? When I was driving everybody. When they were small, and I'd be driving. Didn't matter where. It was just me at the wheel and you next to me and those three idiots in the back. And I knew everything was okay, 'cause I was driving. And I had it. I had everybody.
