[Roger's mother is ranting and raving, and slaps Roger's face when he won't talk to her after suffering a nervous breakdown. Dr Clemm slaps Mrs Baxter's face to shock her out of her rage]
Dr. Roberta Clemm:
[quietly but menacingly]
I hate violence, Mrs Baxter, and tomorrow I'm going to hate myself for this, but right now I warn you if you so much as move, I'm going to break you into little pieces.

In the early 70s, I never heard of a kid actor named Scott Jacoby. Then one week I saw him in like 3 movies in a row airing in the middle of the night. Baxter! isn't as good as "Bad Ronald," but it held my interest even though I was just a kid, and it's still a great film today. Scott plays this kid Roger with a lisp and he has to get speech therapy. He kinda comes of age while going through this. Sounds kind simple, and it is, but it has some intense moments. Good stuff.
