Quotes

Dan Broderick: I know this isn't the exact ring you asked for, but I thought it'd be more of a surprise. And you know... I kind of like this one better.
Betty Broderick: [surprised] You liked it better?
Dan Broderick: Well... uhh...
Betty Broderick: [calmly] Yes, you liked it better. And that's what counts, really, I mean, that's what it's all about. You make it, you spend it on what you want.
Dan Broderick: [flabbergasted] Geez, Bets, it isn't like it cost any less.
Betty Broderick: [becoming ballistic] Exactly! So, why not get me what I want? *You* certainly got what you wanted, even though...

To all the people who justify the Dan Broderick killings
24 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am sitting here reading these comments and I am appalled. To all of the people who are writing Dan Broderick got what was coming to him. What is wrong with you? What if your son, daughter, sister, brother, mother, and father got murdered in their sleep because they angered someone. Are you even looking at the fact that she called and harassed them every day. Think about it... would you seriously give your ex more money & custody of the kids if they 1.) Ran a door into your house with the kids inside, not even knowing where they were. 2.) Broken into your house not 1 but two times and destroyed everything. 3.) cursed and used profanity at your 9 year old child. No you wouldn't. So he left her BOO HOO! It's a sad day in the world when you justify killing somebody because they made you mad.
