The Poker House (2008)
Agnes: [narrating] I race the sun home in the morning, and the moon up at night. Anything can happen, and anything does. There's just today - and then there's tonight. And tonight is wonderful.
Agnes: [narrating] I left my mother and the man I thought loved me in that house. I left my mother and my rapist in that house. I left my mother and my mother's pimp in that house. Look at all the people it takes to make up a person. Ain't that nothin'?
Agnes: [narrating] I remember when I was ten somebody gave me a diary for a present. But I felt like it was too late, so I didn't write in it. Too much had already happened. So, it wouldn't be the whole story. I feel that way again, and I'm fourteen. Nobody'd believe it. Ain't nobody to tell. A girl falls in the city, but nobody sees it. Did it happen?
1st 'John': [seeing her come in] Ah...
Agnes: [narrating] I race the sun home in the morning, and the moon up at night. There's just today, and then there's tonight. Anything can happen, then anything does. You get through it.
Agnes: [narrating] He probably won't kill me. It ain't happened yet. But, it's like when people tell you that their dog doesn't bite. How do they know?
Agnes: Hey Bee, you coming back?
Bee: You making breakfast?
Agnes: I can make macaroni & cheese. Only we don't have any milk, or any butter.
Bee: Orange water macaroni?
Agnes: I found some Nacho Cheese Doritos, I can smash 'em up in the bowl with the water.
