Quotes

Frankie Heck: [discussing Doris the dog] Hey, the vet says she has to be in a smoke-free environment until she regenerates lung tissue. What could I say?
Mike Heck: So what, now we're not going?
Frankie Heck: I-I don't know. I mean, the kids can't watch her. You can't leave her alone for more than fifteen minutes, or she chokes on her own saliva. And someone has to change the nicotine patch, because she's going through withdrawal.

Frankie Just Needs 15 Minutes!
10 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Frankie Heck could use some time alone or with her husband to celebrate their wedding anniversary. It's not like they are going to Paris or New York City but to buy something for the house. I think it's carpeting but where will she find the time. Her elderly aunts, Ginny and Edie, learn that their beloved dog has lung cancer and her children can't leave her alone. I wonder if this is the same episode where she spends 15 minutes in the ladies' room trying to relax and escape her life's problems. Well, she does get the time. But only to receive 14 messages on her cell phone, where would we be without cell phones? Her kids are trying to get in touch with her and her husband. Somehow the anniversary never goes according to plan.
