Tom McCamus: Sam Burnell

Quotes 

  • Mary : (Speaking of a new computer, a gift) From Mr. Stephens... That was him on the phone just now. He was calling to see how you were.

    Nicole : Who's Mr. Stephens?

    Sam : Uh, he's a lawyer. He's our lawyer.

    Nicole : You and Mom have a lawyer?

    Sam : Well, yes. He's your lawyer, too.

    Nicole : My lawyer. Why do I need a lawyer?

    Mary : Well maybe we shouldn't be talking about this just now, with you barely home. Aren't you hungry, honey? You want me to fix you something?

    Nicole : No. What's this lawyer business?

  • Sam : Nicole, tomorrow Mr. Stephens wants you to make your deposition at the community center. Thought I'd take you over.

    Nicole : Great.

    Sam : You seem, uh, I don't know. Distant, I guess. Hard to talk to.

    Nicole : We didn't used to have to talk a lot, did we Daddy?

    Sam : What do you mean?

    Nicole : I mean, I'm a wheelchair girl now. And it's hard to pretend that I'm a beautiful rock star. Remember, Daddy? That beautiful stage that you were gonna build for me. You were gonna light it with nothing but candles.
