Poor Brick. The whole Heck family on The Middle made resolutions for one another, and Brick got stuck with “stop reading all the time”. This was basically the worst thing ever, and I would feel the exact same way if I were deprived of books.
–The Middle, season 3 episode 12, “Year of the Hecks”
Brick: Hey! Are you nuts? I’m in detox! You can’t throw an open book in my face!
Axl: Chill out…
Brick: You chill out! I haven’t read in ten hours. I didn’t even get to read in school today!
