Charles: (about separating the children) What do you expect me to do?
Mr. Edwards: I don't expect you to do anything. You've got your mind made up.
Charles: And you think I'm wrong?
Mr. Edwards: Yeah. I do, I think you're wrong. See, you've always had a family. You don't know what it's like to be alone. Well, I do. When I lost my wife and daughter, a part of me died as well, and that part of me ain't never coming back to life again! Oh, yeah, I'm just happy-go-lucky Mr. Edwards to all of you, always laughing and making jokes.......just like those children are laughing right now. Let me tell you something, it's different when you're alone. Look, you made your decision, all right? Just don't expect me to tell you it's right!
Charles: And don't expect me to tell you that you're right. You made your choice, you want to be alone. (walks away)
