  • Quotes

    • Caroline: Albert....a boy your age has no idea--
      Albert: Ma, please don't tell me I'm too young to know how I feel!
      Caroline: I wasn't going to try and tell you that. And don't you ever raise your voice to me while you live in this house! Marriage.....marriage is a big undertaking, under the best of circumstances--
      Albert: I know that!
      Caroline: Let me finish. When two people fall in love, that feeling is so big in the beginning. It overshadows everything. It's the only thing in the world. People tend to push real problems away, and pretend they don't exist. They don't even want to think about them, because facing those problems can be painful.
      Albert: But Sylvia and I have already faced up to those problems. I have a job, I'll work hard....and I'll take care of her.
      Caroline: What about the baby?
      Albert: I'll take care of the baby, too.
      Caroline: I'm not talking about taking care of the baby--I'm talking about loving the baby! How does Sylvia feel about the baby? Have you asked her?
      Albert: No.
      Caroline:That baby was not conceived in love. It was a cruel and brutal thing. It won't be so easy for that girl to forget. How is she going to feel about that child?
      Albert: (crying) I don't know, Ma. I just want to love her.
