Kissing Jessica Stein
You're my love, you know that? My beloved. But sometimes I worry for you.
I worry for me too.
Sweetheart. I will never forget...when you were in the fifth grade...and you were so excited when you got the lead in the play. Do you remember that? 'Really Rosie'.
Really Rosie, yeah. I remember.
And you came home after the first day of rehearsal...and you turned to me and you said, "Mommy, I'm not gonna do it. I quit." Just like that. I turned to you and I said, "Jessie. Jessie, my love, why?" And you said, "Because my costar isn't good enough. And if my costar isn't good enough, then the play won't be good enough. And I don't wanna be part of any play that isn't good enough." And I thought to myself... "Oy. This child will suffer. How this child will suffer."
