Jade Butterfield: You know what I keep thinking about? A night in the house. I was a little girl, and then I saw David all alone. And I don't know. I just... I wanted to go to him. Was that wrong? I wasn't a happy little girl anymore. Something changed. The first time in my life I was me.

Ann Butterfield: Life goes on. We change.

Jade Butterfield: But it hurts. It hurts so much.

Ann Butterfield: Oh, Baby, it all happened so fast for you. When you live a lifetime you'll understand it.

Jade Butterfield: But he loved me. He loves me! No one will ever love me as much.

Ann Butterfield: Many people will love you. You'll see.

Jade Butterfield: But not like that. Not like David.

Jade Butterfield: It was a once in a lifetime thing, David. I know that! And it came in a time when we were too young to handle it. That was the terrible part.

David Axelrod: I heard you were writing again. It's great. Tell me... That story you wrote about me. Do you have a copy? I'd like to read it sometime.

Ann Butterfield: What's that look?

Hugh Butterfield: David's here! I just caught them bare-assed in her room!

Ann Butterfield: [laid back] My God! I thought it was something awful.

[sighs]

Ann Butterfield: You were meant to catch them, I'm sure.

Hugh Butterfield: [fuming] She didn't even bat an eyelash.

Ann Butterfield: [scoffs] You didn't raise her to be a hypocrite.

[pulls curtain over doorway for privacy]

Ann Butterfield: You know he's been staying over, don't you?

[gets surprised look]

Ann Butterfield: Yes, he hides in the house till they think we're asleep. And of course he scuttles away at dawn. They're rather sweet. Like bats.

[smiles, imitating bats flying off]

Hugh Butterfield: [shaking head in dismay] I do not know what to do about this.

Ann Butterfield: [ironic] I am so happy to hear you say that. You are always so definite with the children. Let's all be open about sex.

[elementary gesture]

Ann Butterfield: Well, they certainly got the idea. They feel free to express love. It's worth all those awful frank discussions at the dining room table.

Hugh Butterfield: [rising] We're not talking about morality.

Ann Butterfield: I'm - -

[interrupted]

Hugh Butterfield: This boy thinks he can come in here-...

Ann Butterfield: [insisting] They believed everything that we said. Imagine.

Hugh Butterfield: A girl like that doesn't have to take the first guy who comes along.

Ann Butterfield: Oh, I didn't realize we were saving her for somebody special.

Hugh Butterfield: Oh...

Ann Butterfield: Are we saving her for someone rich?

Hugh Butterfield: God damn it. That's not fair. The girl is fifteen years old. Now when is she gonna study, when is she gonna sleep?

Ann Butterfield: Come on. You're the one that's always saying she's sleeping too much. I know it's difficult, but aren't you happy that she has someone? That someone finally had the courage to wake up Sleeping Beauty?

[Dad, disgruntled, takes a swig of orange juice]

Ann Butterfield: It had to happen, sooner or later.

[he mulls over, frowns, sighs deeply]

Hugh Butterfield: [sternly] David. I don't want you to go into the house.

David Axelrod: [looking back at him] Why? What's the matter?

Hugh Butterfield: [continues cleaning car] You and Jade won't be seeing each other for a while.

David Axelrod: [incredulously] What?

Hugh Butterfield: You heard what I said. This thing's gotten totally out of control. I made a mistake giving you so much freedom around here. Now Jade's fallen behind in her schoolwork, she can't sleep at night.

David Axelrod: Just a second. I mean, Jade didn't say anything to me about this.

Hugh Butterfield: Well, I'm telling you. I want you to stay away until after school is out. Thirty days.

David Axelrod: You can't do this...!

Hugh Butterfield: Don't you tell me what I can do and can't do. Jade is my daughter. She's only fifteen years old.

[snorts, walks away carrying two pails of water]

Hugh Butterfield: After thirty days, we'll take another look at the situation. Do you understand?

David Axelrod: Is she in there?

Hugh Butterfield: [warning tone] Don't you go in that house.

David Axelrod: I'm going to talk to Jade.

[Mom appears in doorway]

Hugh Butterfield: [snarls at him] You get the hell outta here!

Jade Butterfield: [lovers' idle banter as they caress] Do you think I'm too small on top?

David Axelrod: You're perfect.

Jade Butterfield: [vainly giggling] My eyes are too close together.

David Axelrod: They're perfect.

Jade Butterfield: [little smile] When I'm wrinkled and fat, you'll stop loving me. C'est la vie.

[aims a kiss at him, laughing]

David Axelrod: I'll never stop loving you.

Jade Butterfield: You can't say that. You don't know.

[nestling her head on his chest]

David Axelrod: Yes, I do. I knew that from the very first.

[his hand slowly strokes from between her shoulder-blades up to the back of her neck]

David Axelrod: I'll never stop loving you. I never want to. You're all I care about. And me. The person I am when I'm with you.

Jade Butterfield: It's kinda scary. It keeps on getting stronger and stronger. I used to think it would be...

[kiss]

Jade Butterfield: like being thirsty. Sometimes you'd feel like you'd had enough.

[laughs, shakes head]

Jade Butterfield: It's not like that.

[kisses]

Hugh Butterfield: [finds Jade with pill bottle] What are you doing? Give me that!

Jade Butterfield: No! No!

Hugh Butterfield: Give me that! Open your hand, damn it! Jesus Christ, I don't believe this!

Jade Butterfield: [whining] I can't sleep.

Hugh Butterfield: You don't fool around with these things!

Jade Butterfield: [whining louder] I can't sleep!

Hugh Butterfield: Neither can anybody else in this house!

Ann Butterfield: [Jade sobs, she comes running in] Hugh, for heaven's sake!

Hugh Butterfield: She comes in here, and helps herself to these pills.

Jade Butterfield: I needed something to sleep!

Hugh Butterfield: You don't help yourself to pills like this!

Ann Butterfield: Why don't you lock the cabinet?

[hands in hair]

Ann Butterfield: It's too early for all this shouting. Let her have a pill.

Hugh Butterfield: Stay the hell out of this!

[pushing Ann back]

Hugh Butterfield: I'm the doctor here and I don't want her to have these!

Jade Butterfield: [crying] Then give me something else!

Hugh Butterfield: You bring your goddamn boyfriend in here, you keep everybody else awake, I'm fed up with it!

[slams his fist]

Sammy Butterfield: [from upstairs] I can't sleep with all this racket going on!

[Keith also comes down the stairs, glaring down]

Hugh Butterfield: I will not have this family torn apart! David can not stay here!

Jade Butterfield: [tearfully] Yes, he can! It is my room! We are not a couple of little kids!

Hugh Butterfield: He doesn't give a damn about you! All he cares about is his own satisfaction! I don't want him in your room, I don't want him in this house!

Ann Butterfield: Stop it!

Jade Butterfield: [wailing, to Dad] You're just jealous, you're jealous of us!

Ann Butterfield: Baby, calm down!

Jade Butterfield: [accusing Dad] You're such a hypocrite! You say one thing to David, you say something else to me! You change your mind from one minute to the next!
