George Knox: You're Roger's mom?
Maggie Nelson: Nope.
George Knox: Aunt? Grandma?
Maggie Nelson: No, we're not related. This is a short-term foster care facility, I run it. Roger is a ward of the state.
George Knox: I see. So Roger, he's got a wild imagination? Always coming up with stories?
Maggie Nelson: No actually, he's very grounded. Truth is most kids who are taken away from their parents by the court system, have a good handle on reality.
Roger Bomman: I've got to ask you something. Do you believe in angels?
Maggie Nelson: What have angels got to do with you being out of bed?
Hank Murphy: Are you crackin' up, or is this a repeat of Cincinnati?
George Knox: No, no, it's nothing like that.
Roger Bomman: David, I need a drink.
David Montagne: Which of these drinks?
Roger Bomman: I don't want that. I want something else.
David Montagne: What else?
Roger Bomman: Uh... coffee.
David Montagne: You drink coffee?
Roger Bomman: Yeah, of course. All the time.
JP: Yeah, all the time! What do you think we are? Little kids or something? Now give me a cup or I'll scream.
David Montagne: How do you take it?
Roger Bomman: In cups.
George Knox: In baseball we use signals. Make some kind of signal. I can't come over here every couple of seconds.
Roger Bomman: I'll go like that, okay?
Family Court Judge: You understand that once this hearing has established Roger's permanent placement status, his welfare will forever forward be determined by this court.
Mr. Bomman: I understand.
Family Court Judge: And you consulted a lawyer?
Mr. Bomman: Look, lady, I get what I'm doing. The kid's not mine anymore. Not proud of it. There isn't anything that could change my mind about it either.
