Linda Kolkena Broderick:
[after Betty keeps taking snapshots of Linda behind Linda's back at Kate's high school graduation ceremony]
I'm going to make this quick. I don't want to ruin Kate's day, as you seem to be intent on doing, but if you point that thing at me again, you're going to be photographing the inside of your own throat! Got it?

"I have regrets but no remorse". I always get chills when I think of Ms. Baxter speaking these words as the character of Betty Broderick, a woman who has just murdered her ex-husband and his new bride. Her portrayal as a neurotic woman, scorned, blows the mind!! She breaks all stereotypes of the wholesome Elise Keaton from the 70's sitcom, Family Ties. She's an awesome actress! It's a very entertaining movie!
