: I was hoping winter was over. Margo
: No, it's just a thaw - winter isn't over till Easter.
: What are you doing Friday night? Lars Lindstrom
: I have a school board meeting. Bianca got elected, so...
: How was the game? Gus
: The cheese inspectors beat the crap out of us.
: [to Bianca, after she is given flowers
] Those are nice, huh? And they're not real, so they'll last forever.
: You don't care. Karin
: We don't care? We do care! Lars Lindstrom
: No you don't. Karin
: That is just not true! God! Every person in this town bends over backward to make Bianca feel at home. Why do you think she has so many places to go and so much to do? Huh? Huh? Because of you! Because - all these people - love you! We push her wheelchair. We drive her to work. We drive her home. We wash her. We dress her. We get her up, and put her to bed. We carry her. And she is not petite, Lars. Bianca is a big, big girl! None of this is easy - for any of us - but we do it... Oh! We do it for you! So don't you dare tell me how we don't care.

: Listen up, Margo, those action figures are very important to me. They're worth a lot of money. And if I don't see every damned one back on my desk pretty soon, then, you can tell your teddy to watch his back. Margo
: [returns one action figure
] I'll return them, one at a time... You going to Cindy's party? Lars Lindstrom
: Oh, no. Margo

: Oh, um, yeah, yeah, I'm totally bringing somebody Lars Lindstrom
: So, tell me about Karin. I don't know her very well. Lars Lindstrom
: Oh, she's wonderful. Gus and I are very lucky with women - she's wonderful. But she... Dagmar
: That's okay, let's find you something to read Lars Lindstrom
: No, it's just... between us? Dagmar
: Of course. Lars Lindstrom
: I'm worried about her. I think she has a little problem. Dagmar
: Oh, well, maybe you shouldn't tell me. Lars Lindstrom
: No, that's okay. It's just, and I think it's because she's insecure, it's just, she's just always trying to hug everybody. You know, some people don't like that. Some people don't like to be hugged. But she doesn't realize that. She takes it personally, and, it hurts her feelings. I don't know what to do about that. Do you? Dagmar
: It's such a comfort sometimes, just to have somebody's arms around you. Don't you think? Lars Lindstrom
: No. Dagmar
: It feels good. Lars Lindstrom
: It does not feel good. It, it hurts. Dagmar
: Oh, like a cut, or bruise? Lars Lindstrom
: Like a burn. Like when you go outside and your feet freeze and you come back in and then they thaw out? It's like that. It's almost exactly like that. Dagmar
: Same with everyone? Lars Lindstrom
: Uh, not really with Bianca. But everyone else
: Don't you want to be an uncle? Lars Lindstrom
: Don't you want to be a mom? Dagmar
: [pauses, whispers
] Yes. But I'm not able to have children of my own.
: What about me? Mrs. Gruner
: Big baby! You're just like my husband. She'll be home at 11!
: I was talking to Bianca, and she was saying that in her culture they have these rites of passages and rituals and cermonies, and, just all kinds of things that, when you do them, go through them, let you know that you're an adult? Doesn't that sound great? Gus
: It does. Lars Lindstrom
: How'd you know? Gus
: How'd I know what? Lars Lindstrom
: That you were a man Gus
: Ahhh. I couldn't tell ya. Lars Lindstrom
: Was it... okay, was it sex? Gus
: Um. Yeah, yeah, yeah, it's uh, yeah, yeah it's kind of - it's uh - no. Well, it's kind of sex but it's not uh, you know? I don't know. I don't know. It's - uh - good question, good question. Lars Lindstrom
: Yeah, but I have to know Gus
: [dryer buzzes
] Hold that thought. Gus
: [in basement
] You know, you should ask Dagmar Lars Lindstrom
: I did ask Dagmar. And she said that I should ask you. Gus
: Okay, you know I can only give you my opinion. Lars Lindstrom
: That's what we want Gus
: Well, it's not like you're one thing or the other, okay? There's still a kid inside but you grow up when you decide to do right, okay, and not what's right for you, what's right for everybody, even when it hurts. Lars Lindstrom
: Okay, like what? Gus
: Like, you know, like, you don't jerk people around, you know, and you don't cheat on your woman, and you take care of your family, you know, and you admit when you're wrong, or you try to, anyways. That's all I can think of, you know - it sound like it's easy and for some reason it's not.
