Morning begins with Fee brushing her teeth. Carl claims he's
electrocuting dolls because they need to pay for their sins. Steve and
Fee are doing it, and he's taking forever. The power goes off and Carl
seems to be the guilty party, but he's not. They didn't pay the electric
bill. Hector can only help them out of this jam if they have the
necessary funds. Hector gives Fee his cell number. If she pays it, she
can call him and he'll swing through and turn them back on...Read the full recap
Debbie: Didn't Fiona tell you to stop electrocuting dolls?
Carl: They have to pay for their sins.
Karen: Dad, will you join us at Parents' Night tonight?
Eddie Jackson: Me?
Karen: Not you, fuckface. I was talking to Daddy Frank. Daddy Frank, will you come?
Frank: Oh... no, no, ladies, I don't do school. We all have our phobias, and school is mine. All of it. Textbooks full of falsehoods, teachers' unions full of thugs, and tenured imbeciles who still use words like "irregardless." Not for me.
Sheila Jackson: (about Parents' Night) Karen? Sweetie? I'm gonna be there, okay? I have a session today. I'm gonna have a breakthrough, I can see it.
Eddie Jackson: (laughing) Yeah, come on...
Karen: Keep laughing, and I will slit your throat while you sleep.
Linda: You're short again.
Linda: Inventory. Gone, out the door without being paid for. Soup, beer, chips, cigarettes, lollipops, salt... People are stealing salt, Kash, what the hell?
Kash: Kids, why don't you go in the back and get yourself some juice.
Linda: Boys, stay right where you are. You need to hear this. Other than genetic markers for heart disease and bad teeth, this dump is the sum total of what we're leaving you.
Linda: So, what have you allowed to be stolen today?
Kash: Can we try some optimism?
Linda: Optimism is for children and presidents, not for mini-mart owners in a land of 30 million jobless.
Miss Devlin: Do you realize Carl's report card has seven U's?
Fiona: Uh, U's?
Miss Devlin: As in unsatisfactory.
Principal Monroe: But don't think of U as in unsatisfactory. Think of U as in F.
Fiona: As in failed?
Principal Monroe: As in fucked. I am not a religious man, but every now and then a child comes along who makes me believe in the existence of Satan.
Fiona: You need to stop biting and punching and hurting people.
Carl: Well, how else do I make them cry?
Lip: Gossip and slander.
Sheila Jackson: (about Karen) Frank, how am I gonna help her be the woman she's supposed to be if I'm locked up in this house? I can't even get through the doors of a pretend supermarket. How am I gonna show her the... Grand Canyon? Life is going on all around me, and I'm missing out. Why am I so pathetic?
Frank: Hey. You are going to get through those doors any day now, and never look back.
Fiona: Yeah, I didn't need your help.
Steve: No, it looked like you did. You're upset that I actually did help. You're afraid that if I keep on showing up and actually helping, that you'll like it. And liking it will lead to relying on it, and by relying on it, you'll be less of the you you've made yourself into... A kick-ass you that you like and I like, too. But you're afraid that if you learn to rely on me, then one day, when you really need me to show up, I won't. And then you'll be angry at yourself for believing in something you've only seen in the movies, something that I'm determined to prove to you actually exists.
Fiona: How come every time I want to fool around, you can't shut up?
