- Trivia & Quotes
Stephanie: Why don't you have children, Dr. Montgomery?
Addison: (smiling) I can't.
Stephanie: Did you ever want to have children?
Addison: Yes, I tried, but I was not able to.
Stephanie: So would you lie on the stand to keep Lucas, to protect your one last chance at motherhood?
Addison: No, I want to answer. You're right. I'm a cheater and a husband stealer, and on top of all that I'm barren. So good times. I... I never wanted any of this to happen. I never wanted to hurt Violet. Yes, she's a mess. I'm a mess, too. I... I'm here for Lucas. He's a baby, so he can't speak for himself. But I'm pretty sure, if he could, he'd say that he wanted to feel loved and safe and have cereal for dinner. I just want Lucas to be happy. So if that means you tearing me apart and making me look like the most horrible person on earth, then please, go ahead and do it, because... Lucas is worth it...to me. So...Next question...Ms Gibson?
Charlotte: Violet Turner's a great mother.
Ruby: It doesn't give you pause that Violet gave her baby away to Pete?
Charlotte: Violet knew her limits and asked for help. She did more for her child than most mothers do. She coulda kept her child, hired a nanny, spent her days locked in her room with the vapors like my mother but she didn't.
Ruby: Do you think...
Charlotte: I'm not finished. She handed Lucas over to his father out of love for her child. Now she's spending all her time apologizing for taking care of herself. As far as I'm concerned, she don't have to apologize to anyone for anything. She's gett'n on with her life the best way she can. She's ready to spend time with her son. I don't see why we aren't all support'n her.
