Quotes from

Dick Pepper: [Expressing indignation over the fact that adoption agencies conduct background checks on prospective parents and their co-signers] Investigated? You mean they might be sneaking behind our backs without our knowing it?
August 'Augie' Poole: Sure. They'll assign a caseworker to us. A woman with her hair spun back in a bun, and a mouth like a mail slot. Typical 'American Gothic.'

[Dick starts to look very uncomfortable upon hearing this]

Dick Pepper: Maybe it is best to come clean and tell her everything. Confession *is* good for the soul.
