From You're Not You
[not realizing they are on the baby monitor
] I'm doing something positive. Something good. I'm helping another human being.
No, Rebekah my darling, you're not. What you *are* doing is exactly what you've done your entire life. You're focusing all of your energy, all of your time, on something that is doomed to fail. That poor, poor woman out there is going to die. And when she is gone, where does that leave you? With no future, no degree, and no means of supporting yourself. Nothing.
Merry Christmas to you too, mom...
