      • Kate: No, tell me, Willie. I don't know how you feel? Is that what you... you're trying to say?
        Willie: Yes.
        Kate: Well, you're wrong. I do know how you feel. I know the unbearable, inescapable pain of loss. I knew it when my father died, and my mother. But, cruel as this may sound to you... once you're grown, that's... expectable pain. My husband's alive, thank God. So, in that case, I don't know how you feel. But even the death of a spouse is not entirely unprepared for.... because that same knowledge is in you that there's a good chance... a 50-50 chance that you'll outlive your husband or wife. One kind of death you're entirely unprepared for: you don't know how it feels to lose a child. It's a freak of nature... a perversion of life. Your father and I lost a child; we know that unspeakable sorrow. But here's another sorrow: you are our only living son, and you're dying before our eyes, willfully.
        Willie: Alright, Mom. That's enough.
        Kate: It's not nearly enough.

      • Nancy: Hey! What're you doing up there? Come on down, and be a star.
        Buddy: They're looking at it all wrong. You're supposed to look at it in order.
        Nancy: Well, there are too many people for that. Besides, they're looking for pictures of themselves.
        Buddy: I know, but this is a marriage -- one that's lasted a quarter of a century. I think that's worth looking at in order, don't you?

      • Willie: We could have a terrific life together.
        Lizzie: A what? Our marriage would have nothing to do with life. It would be about death. Instead of the state seal on our license, we could have a skull and crossbones.
