  • Quotes

    • Lilith: Here we are. File A, slide sheet 1, image 1 of subject Frederick G. Crane.
      Freddie: Mom!
      Lilith: (showing him the slide sheet) Here you are, just an hour after being wrestled from my grudging womb.
      Freddie: Gross!
      Lilith: You know, if you'd like there's still time to include this in your Bar Mitzvah video.
      Freddie: Thanks, but I just want to get through this thing with as little humiliation as possible.
      Lilith: (going through a box) Oh, look at this! Your hospital cap. The very combed cotton that swaddled your little...(voice breaking) head.
      (Lilith's emotional reaction is very minor, but somehow, for her it
      seems big)

      Freddie: Are you okay?
      Lilith: Of course I am. It's only natural that there should be some emotional upheaval caused by the impending shift in our relationship. I knew it would come, I just wasn't expecting such a roller coaster. (she pauses briefly) All done. Is this your guest list? Oh, I didn't realize you wanted to invite so many friends. I don't even know some of these people. And why are you inviting Jeremy Berman? I thought you told me he's the biggest nerd in your class.
      Freddie: He's not so bad. Besides, the more people you invite, the more presents you get.
      Lilith: Frederick... a Bar Mitzvah is a rite of passage, not an opportunity for you to collect presents.
      Freddie: I'm sorry. You're right. I'll try to trim it down.
