Welcome to the club of parental deceit, child. It’s a lonely place, but, that’s the price of being clever.[to Trixie]
Sometimes the best way to protect your children is to let them believe you’ve stopped.[quoting Maghra]
Raising a child gives you a certain ambition you otherwise never would’ve had, a primal desire to give your child a better world than the one you were given.
One day, a long time from now, you’re gonna meet someone who’s better than me. He’s gonna be stronger and handsomer and even better at board games than me. And when you find him, when you find that guy, that’s the guy you’re gonna marry. Oh, and he’s one lucky guy, the guy that gets to marry you, Katie girl. And your mom and me, we’re gonna be there, you know. Just to check him out. Make sure he’s as good at board games as you think that he is. And, assuming that he is, I’ll get to walk you down the aisle. And I may even cry a little.[to Kate]
My baby girl. You are wrong. We don’t live in different worlds. You and your brother are the only world that I have lived in since the day you were born. My children, I’m as blind as anyone. But I see you both. I will never stop seeing you.
