    • (After Olivia uncovers her "drugs" in her bedroom) Abby: Why, Olivia? Why? Olivia: It's no big deal. Everybody does it. I'm not hooked or anything. Abby: You must have known I'd found out. Is this some kind of game you're playing with me? Brian: Mom! (Brian enters) Abby: Brian, I... Brian: Maria says I can't have another piece of cake. Abby: Well, how much have you had? Brian: Well....two pieces, but they were small. Abby: Well, Maria's right, honey. You've had enough. Too much sweets aren't good for you. I'm sorry. (Brian leaves. Abby sighs and faces Olivia) Some things aren't good for you in any amount. Olivia: Okay, I know. I won't do it anymore. Really. It's not a problem. Abby: Promise me. (They hug)
