Ricky: My mother says before I was born I was the same as everybody else, better even. My mom says I'm from a place where I'm the smartest person there. Everybody sings.

Harriet: Well, maybe the home will be like that, and it'll look like a castle and have a moat around it and have gardens and bushes shaped like animals.

Ricky: I don't want to go to a home.

Gwen: You want to sleep in my room with me tonight?

Harriet: No!

Gwen: Don't be mad at me about mom, it's not my fault. Don't think it's your fault either.

Harriet: I'm glad she's dead!

Gwen: You don't mean that.

Harriet: I won't miss her at all.

Gwen: Harriet you loved her. She loved you too, very much. Sometimes, just... things just happen sometimes... Look; you don't have to worry about being an orphan or anything. You've got me.

Harriet: The booby prize.

Gwen: I'm trying to tell you something here, Harriet... So... I'm going to be your mother now. What do you think about that?

Harriet: I don't need a mother.

Gwen: Sure you do.

Gwen: No, I'm your mother... I had you when I was fifteen. I was letting Mom be your mother.

Gwen: I'm not mad at you, okay? But I want you to promise me something...

Harriet: What?

Gwen: Promise me you won't hang around Ricky anymore.

Harriet: But Ricky is my best friend.

Gwen: He can't be Harriet. He's a man, he's a grown-up, he's a... retarded. If you hang around him long enough you'll start talking like him or walking like him or maybe even acting like him.

Harriet: Well, at least it would be better than talking and walking and acting like you.
