Brenda: And this boy (Rusty), there's something he said.
Brenda: Gonna be surprised.
Brenda: Made me think about my life.
Fritz: I'm surprised.
Brenda: Told you!
Fritz: (Fritz sits down next to her) What did Rusty say?
Brenda: Am, he said that ah, bad men were how he made a living and it doesn't hurt to just listen to them and that, am, his mother was gone and she wasn't coming back. And, am, I started to think about how sad that story was and then I realized that's me.
Fritz: You make your living listening to bad people and your mother's gone.
Brenda: (fighting back tears) And she's never coming back. But Stroh is; that's what I have to look forward to - Stroh coming back.
Brenda: Where the bad men go.
