Tom:How does it feel, Captain?
Phil Carter:What?
Tom:How does it feel to almost lose your child? How bad does it feel?
Phil Carter:I don't know what gotten into you, Tom, but I don't think this is none of your concern.
Tom:I'm sorry, Phil, I'm 32 years old and you don't get to decide what concerns me. See, your standard of conduct might be the sufficient reason to lose your child, but I have to draw the line when it comes to losing mine.
Phil Carter:What children? You don't have any children.
Tom:No, I don't. I don't have any children. I don't have children, because my wife would rather have an abortion without telling me - without even telling me that she's pregnant - rather than risk upsetting you by having a baby at the wrong time. You have a son who drinks himself into a stupor every night...
Tim Carter:[embarrassed by this] Oh, God, Tom!'ve got a daughter who's ashamed of her husband...

Great movie, ahead of times ( coming out ), 12 February 2004
Author: waldemarchicago from Chicago, USA

When I saw this movie for the first time , I was confused, almost as the main character there Matt. Confusing times, coming out, dysfunctional family under the cover of "american smile"; these are just few subjects that are mentioned in this film. Similiar to movies showing same dysfunctional family problem, is shown much later in "American Beauty" but going much deeper. "Doing time on Maple Drive is the beginning era of breaking down stereotypes which were imprinted back in 50's. As most recent "Monalisa Smile" shows the roots of dysfunkcionality. We need to live in this society today, and knowing possible problems, that may develop will help to overcome them.

Just on the side, William McNamara became my hero, ever since I saw this movie. I identified with Matt's role very much, even thoug I was born and raised in Poland, I think that movie applies very much there as well. William is a great actor. Love him for his performance and being himself.

I had a crush on him when I saw this movie..... LOve to meet him sometime, that would be really awsome.!!!
