Brenda: I will be pressing murder charges today, Mr. Catalina, and I need your help in deciding whether I charge Oscar by himself, or Oscar and his mother.
Mr. Catalina: Excuse me?
Brenda: Oh, come now. This is hardly "Sophie's Choice."
This in reference to the 1982 film "Sophie's Choice," in which the lead character revealed that during the Holocaust, she had been forced to choose between sparing the life of her son or her daughter. "Sophie's Choice" has become an expression for a tragic, or extremely difficult, decision.
