  • Quotes

    • Chen: I'm being selfish. I have the money to raise him. There's no reason why I can't.
      Carter: There's a couple out there who desperately want to raise a child and you're giving them a great gift.
      Chen: What happens, eighteen years from now, when he shows up looking for an explanation?
      Carter: Tell him the truth. You know, tell him that you wanted to provide the best home possible for him.
      Chen: Do I tell him I was a coward? That my bigoted parents were more important to me than he was?
      Carter: Well, I think that you've got to take your family out of this. Now, if you want to keep the baby, keep the baby. But if you don't, or you can't, then you want to make sure that he goes to somebody that's going to love him, who's going to want him, and know that you're not abandoning your baby--you're creating a family.
