Adele: You went too far with the ice cream business. He did not say that.

Ann: Yes, he did.

Adele: No, he did not.

Ann: [on the phone] Do you ever think about me?

Hisham Badir: Ann, do you need me to help out in some way?

Ann: What?

Hisham Badir: Do you need some money?

Ann: That's a terrible thing to say. I just wanted to talk to you. You're my father and I thought maybe I could see you.

Hisham Badir: Well I thought perhaps your mother asked you to.

Ann: [interrupts] My mother didn't ask me to do anything. Why would you say that?

Hisham Badir: You know your mother.

Ann: Yes I do know my mother and this isn't about your money. She has nothing to do with this.

Hisham Badir: Ann, I don't know what to say. Look I'm in the middle of something.

[pauses]

Hisham Badir: Can I?

Ann: [crying] You're not even glad that I called are you? You don't care if you ever see me again. You don't give a damn about me, do you? You know, I'm sorry I called you.

Adele: [to Ann] You are a beautiful girl with great potential. I'm not going to see your future as some nothing girl in a nothing factory in a nothing town! You are 14-years old. You have always had enough to eat. You have always had a roof over your head and if you stick with me you always will because I am your mother. I know what is best for you because that is my job. Plus, you're going to go to school in Beverly Hills which is only the best school district in the United States! And you'll be a child actor while you're still a child!
