[telling Kathleen about driving she and Elliot through a blizzard in 1969
] We were the only car on the road. I felt like I was driving this magical sleigh. I started going faster. I felt like I was chasing the snowflakes. Your daddy was yelling 'stop mommy, stop!', but I was chasing snowflakes, and I chased them right into a lamp post. I totaled the car, and I broke your daddy's arm.
He never told me about that.
No, he never told anybody what really happened. You see, Kathleen, there's no shame in making mistakes, we all have, but do you do have to take responsibility for what you've done.
