Quotes from

Frank Beardsley: [narrating why his ten kids resent him] Truthfully, I think they blamed me for neglecting their mother all those years. But there seemed to me that there was enough physical evidence I hadn't neglected her completely!


Helen North: [drunk] Boy, if this damn room would stop rolling around maybe I could find some place to be sick!


Mike Beardsley: [confronting Helen about her pregnancy] You knew about it Christmas Day, didn't you?
Helen North: Yes.
Mike Beardsley: And you still let Dad ship out. Why?
Helen North: He wanted so much to go. Two people can't live with an ocean between them for the rest of their lives.
Mike Beardsley: Do you really want this baby?
Helen North: Very much. You see, he won't have to worry whether he's a Beardsley or a North.
[Mike nods his head in understanding]
