Quotes Young Natalie: [Maria is wrapping up gifts as Natalie comes in] Why didn't you tell me he was sick?
Maria Cole: Because he is going to be fine. Help me find the tape, Natalie
Young Natalie: How long has he been like this? Do the doctors know what he's got? Do you know how...
Maria Cole: [pounds on the table] WHERE is the tape, Natalie?
[Natalie goes to get the tape dispenser for her and bring it to her. She sits on the couch and Maria joins her]
Maria Cole: Thank you.
