Quotes from

Grace Hewitt: Excited?
Nancy Fallon: Wild!
Grace Hewitt: Try not to show it too much, kids like you to be casual.
Nancy Fallon: Grace, I'll welcome any tip you can give me on how to behave with a teenage daughter.
Grace Hewitt: Well, all I know is anything you do is wrong. If you try to spruce yourself up it's, "Oh Mother, that's too kiddish for you," and if you don't it's, "Mother, do you have to dress like an old bag?"
Nancy Fallon: Oh, you make it sound awful.
Grace Hewitt: They love you. They bully you, but they love you, the little monsters. And if anything goes wrong, they turn back to being 6 or 7 years old and cling to you, and that's heaven.

Nancy Fallon: No one is ever quite the way we want them to be - no one.Most of all, we ourselves are not. But you can't go on resenting people. The mother you wanted... you will have to be yourself for your children."
