    • Billy (about their father): I don't know what I'm going to tell him.
      Melody: Just tell him the truth. He'll understand. You could talk to him about Alcoholics Anonymous. He said AA saved his life. Maybe you could go to a meeting or something with him. I know you can do it if you want to.

    • Melody (to Billy): Maybe you don't have a problem with your drinking, but I do.

    • Danny (about Billy): Did you smell his breath?
      Jake: Yeah, either he used really bad mouthwash or he already had a few beers.

    • Jake (to Buddy): You don't want to live with us. We're really disgusting.
      Danny: Jake has terminal foot odor.
      Jake: And Danny snores.
      Danny: No I don't.
      Brad: Yeah, Dan you do we can hear from our bunk sometimes.
      Danny: No way.
      Jake: Do you want to live with that?
      Buddy: I'll pack my earplugs.

    • Melody: (to her brother) You *are* just like Dad! And I'm just like Mom, always covering for you, always making excuses... I've lied to my friends and my boss, which really makes me feel good about myself! (pause) I'm just not gonna cover for you anymore.
