Quote from Frankie in The Prom

Frankie: [v.o.] With Brick's shows getting lamer and lamer, I didn't know how many more pretend grocery trips I could get away with, without at least coming back with some groceries. [phone rings]
Frankie: Can someone get that? Anyone? [answers phone] Hello?
Woman: [on phone] Hi. Mrs. Heck?
Frankie: Uh, look, if this is about the bake sale, I'm, um, making cookies even as we speak.
Woman: Actually, I'm calling about prom. This is Carolyn Wyman, Ashley's mom?
Frankie: Oh. Yeah? [Axl walks through the kitchen into the pantry]
Woman: She's so excited to be asked to prom, and I just thought we could coordinate in case Axl wants to match his tux or get her a corsage. She's already picked a very nice dress. [Frankie snaps her fingers at Axl] Uh-- Yeah-- Purple? Yeah, I'm sure Ashley will look very pretty in that color. [Axl tries to sneak out] I know, Axl is such a lovely boy. [Frankie throws a loaf of bread at Axl] Uh-huh. Yes. [Frankie grabs Axl by his t-shirt] That sounds perfect. Sure. Yeah. Uh-huh. [Axl's t-shirt rips] I have a camera. Yes... Yeah, can I call you back? Great, bye. [hangs up] Axl, get in here! [Frankie hits him with his t-shirt] Why is Ashley's mom calling me to coordinate prom?! You said you were gonna talk to her.
Frankie: Why is Ashley's mom calling me to coordinate prom?! You said you were gonna talk to her.
Axl: You know, it's your fault she doesn't know! You said I couldn't text, and doing it in person is hard. I'm very sensitive.
Frankie: Well, Mr. Sensitive, she already bought a purple dress, so you're taking her!

Quote from Reverend TimTom

Frankie: So did you get through to him? 'Cause, you know, the clay's drying. We're sort of in a hurry.
Reverend TimTom: Hmm. Well, I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
Frankie: Wait and see? Okay, look, I took a quilt out of the oven and heated you a lasagna. No offense, but I expected some real results here.
Reverend TimTom: I know you're frustrated, Frankie, and you know why that is? Because it's hard being a parent. It's tough being mom and dad. [plays guitar and sings] It's hard being a parent You wonder why kids do the things they do Well, I said it before, and I'll say it once more Remember, Jesus was a teenager, too Mary wondered if he'd be okay But he turned out to be a super nice guy in every way He did, yeah. It's hard being a parent. It's the toughest job you'll ever do And it's the most rewarding, too Remember how they used to spit up on you? But don't worry. This'll pass, too. Yeah... [strums chord] It's hard being a parent.

 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.
