[Ralph and Clinton are barbequing, and drinking liquor. Annabell is not amused]
You don't have to go making HIM a drunkard, too, Ralph.
Whom are you calling a "drunkard," madame?
You never go anywhere without that bottle. You'd even take it to Church with you - if you ever WENT to Church.
If I ever went to Church, I'd HAVE to take it with me!

I found it true to life and totally believable. I should know... The circumstances and relationships have an eerie close resemblance to my own life and dysfunctional family. And we lived in Cleveland.
Clinton was me. As I watched the first time I couldn't believe that someone wasn't telling our story. As proof of what I say, my older brother (totally good not bad) shot and killed our mother in bed in 1987.
Obviously not each and every element of the story reflect my family but so much of them do, especially the major ones.
So it's hard for me to understand how this terrific film affects the general public. It is too personal for me to be objective.
