Vernon Francis Gallagher, also known as Frank Gallagher, is the patriarch of the dysfunctional American family in the hit TV show Shameless. He is portrayed by William H. Macy in the American version and David Threlfall in the UK version. Frank’s significant accomplishments are drunken rants of historical, philosophical, and literary nature. He strongly includes himself upon the working class, believing that they are discriminated against. When he is drunk, his children have no choice but to take care of themselves.
If you are a fan of the hit TV series, you will notice that even though the quotes came from a drunk character, they actually have some shred of truth.
