He's staying with us forever.” This quote is near the beginning of the movie when Tom has just met a girl named Jackie who he really likes. She is standing at the front of his house and Charlies (Toms brother) has just rubbed poo into the carpet. The next day Jackie and Tom talk about it and Jackie says she won’t tell anyone because she believes it doesn’t matter.

The same bedroom door that he had slammed shut 25 years ago. At this point, Robbie’s father is starting to look at things a different way. He remembers when he tried to help his grandmother when he was a child and he remembers messing up. But most of all, he remembers being forgiven. While Robbie prepares to “run away” his father is busy recalling memories of how his grandmother had not been angry with him when he messes and how she taught him that “from a child is beautiful, anything.” Remembering this, the fathers attitude towards his son is now happy and grateful, a big change from mad and frustrated.

Biff, said to his dad “you are a fake; you are a liar, a liar” (Miller, 1958).

Roberts plays Laura Burney, the wife of a rich investment counselor, Martin (Patrick Bergin) and at the beginning of the movie, Mr. Burney seemed to be the ideal husband but with a hint of obsession.
