Frankie Quote #1456

Quote from Frankie in Not Your Brother's Drop Off

Frankie: [over radio] Hey, there, car 2. Just seeing how you're doing back there. Anybody got their ears on? Over. Okay, Sue... [sighs] I don't know what else to do, so I'm just gonna talk. [sighs] You think I'm not gonna miss you? How do you not miss someone you've held since the first moment of their life like a gift you've been given? I mean, you even came wrapped. Y-you're someone I've spent every day with for 18 years... Except for the three days at summer camp that you won selling cheese and sausage, six with Grandma and Grandpa, and two when you ran away from home, but we all knew you were living in your closet. And then, this... this gift of a person leaves you? How are you not crushed by that? But the thing is, with you, more than the sad, there's this excitement, oh, 'cause I know you are so ready for this. And you're gonna do amazing things. I mean, you are gonna Sue up the world. [voice breaking] How lucky is the world, hmm? And how lucky am I that I get a front-row seat for all of it?
Sue: [over radio] [sobs] [crying] I know that I wanted this trip to be exactly like Axl's, but [sniffles] I don't anymore because this is way better. [crying] This is Sue, by the way. Over.

Quote from Brick

Brick: [over radio] Actually, I have a question.
Sue: You're a go, Brick.
Brick: Well, Cindy said she wants to take our relationship to the next level, and Axl said I should figure out what that level is and bump it up at least two levels, but I'm not sure that's solid advice. Mom, when you and Dad were at level...
Frankie: Brick, do not take any of Axl's advice. Do you read me? Over.
Axl: I am simply informing him of the levels he'll have to master if he wants to keep a girl like Cindy satisfied. Over.
Frankie: All right, that's it. We're switching cars. Pull over. Over.
Brick: I just don't want to blow this. I really like her. She gets my sense of humor. She's pretty. She provides stability my family does not. Plus, on hot days, I can walk in her shadow. [whispers] Shadow. [normal voice] Over. [whispers] Over.

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.
