Andromeda 'Anna' Fitzgerald: I was engineered, born for a particular reason. A scientist hooked up my mothers eggs and my fathers sperm to make a specific combination of genes. He did it to save my sister's life.

[first lines]
Andromeda 'Anna' Fitzgerald: When I was a kid, my mother told me that I was a little piece of blue sky that came into this world because she and Dad loved me so much. It was only later that I realized that it wasn't exactly true. Most babies are coincidences. I mean, up in space you've got all these souls flying around looking for bodies to live in. Then, down here on Earth, two people have sex or whatever, and bam, coincidence. Sure, you hear all these stories about how everyone plans these perfect families. But the truth is that most babies are products of drunken evenings and lack of birth control. They're accidents. Only people who have trouble making babies actually plan for them.
Andromeda 'Anna' Fitzgerald: I, on the other hand, am not a coincidence. I was engineered. Born for a particular reason. A scientist hooked up my mother's eggs and my father's sperm to make a specific combination of genes. He did it to save my sister's life. Sometimes I wonder what would have happened if Kate had been healthy. I'd probably still be up in heaven or wherever, waiting to be attached to a body down here on Earth. But coincidence or not, I'm here.

Andromeda 'Anna' Fitzgerald: I want to sue my parents for the right to my own body.
Campbell Alexander: Would you repeat that, please?
Andromeda 'Anna' Fitzgerald: I want to sue my parents for the right to my own body. My sister has leukemia. They're trying to force me to give her my body parts.
Campbell Alexander: You're supposed to give her a kidney?
Andromeda 'Anna' Fitzgerald: She's been in renal failure for months now.
Campbell Alexander: Well, no one can force you to donate if you don't want to, can they?
Andromeda 'Anna' Fitzgerald: They think they can. I'm under 18, they're my legal guardians.
Campbell Alexander: They can't do that.
Andromeda 'Anna' Fitzgerald: Well, I want you to tell them, because they've been doing it to me my whole life. I wouldn't even be alive if Kate wasn't sick. I'm a designer baby. I was made in a dish to be spare parts for Kate.

Andromeda 'Anna' Fitzgerald: Look at me, I'm crying like an idiot.
Judge De Salvo: You're not an idiot. I see idiots everyday. You're not even close.

Andromeda 'Anna' Fitzgerald: You in pain?
Kate Fitzgerald: Pain? My whole life is a pain.

[last lines]
Andromeda 'Anna' Fitzgerald: I'll never understand why Kate had to die and we all got to live. There's no reason for it, I guess. Death's just death, nobody understands it. Once upon a time, I thought I was put on Earth to save me sister. And in the end, I couldn't do it. I realize now, that wasn't the point. The point was I had a sister. She was fantastic. One day I'm sure I'll see her again. But until then, our relationship continues.
