Mary Adler: Is there a God?

Frank Adler: I don't know.

Mary Adler: Just tell me.

Frank Adler: I would if I could. But I don't know. Neither does anybody else.

Mary Adler: Roberta knows.

Frank Adler: No. Roberta has faith... And that's the great thing to have. But faith's about what you think, feel. Not what you know.

Mary Adler: What about Jesus?

Frank Adler: Love that guy. Do what he says.

Mary Adler: But, is he God?

Frank Adler: I don't know. I have an opinion. But that's my opinion and I could be wrong. So why would I screw up yours? Use your head. But don't be afraid to believe in things either.

Mary Adler: Huh. There was a guy on TV who said there was *no* God.

Frank Adler: The only difference between the atheists on TV and Roberta is, Roberta loves you. She trying to help. Tell you what though. One way or another we all end up back together in the end. That's what you're asking, right?

Mary Adler: Yep.

Frank Adler: Okay. Find something else to worry about, will ya?

Mary Adler: All right.

Frank Adler: Miss Davis, if we separate our leaders - if we segregate them from people like you and me - you get "congressmen." So I'm sorry. I wish I can take your offer, but Mary stays. Unless you kick her out.

Frank Adler: Well...

[sarcastically]

Frank Adler: just dumb her down to a decent human being. Everybody wins.

Evelyn: [testifying in court about Mary's mother] Diane was not like regular people. She was extraordinary. And extraordinary people come with singular issues and needs. You have no idea the capability she possessed. One in a billion. And you would say: "Fine, let's throw that away, so the boy who cuts our yard can make a sexual conquest." Well, maybe before you make that decision, you stand in my shoes. I had responsibilities, which are beyond the mother-daughter relationship. The greatest discoveries, which have improved life on this planet, have come from minds rarer than radium. Without them, we'd still be crawling in mud. And, for your information, Counselor, a year after this incident with this boy, Diane thanked me for my intervention. She realized she'd made a mistake and thanked me. You see, Diane understood she was accountable for the gift she'd been given. And she didn't shy from it. And I think, if she were here today, Mr. Attorney, she would refute your baseless insinuations that she would give up her brilliant future and take her own life just because Mommy didn't giver her a little red wagon.

Mary Adler: [opening a present from Evelyn] An Apple? Whoa.

Evelyn: It's a Macbook, darling. Top of the line, with the retina display.

Frank Adler: Hey, you know who else has a retina display?

Mary Adler: Fred!

Evelyn: Mary, I understand you like mathematics. So, on there, you'll find a great out-of-print book by Charles Zimmer called "Transitions in Advanced Algebra."

Mary Adler: Yeah. Love that book.

Evelyn: You're saying you've read it?

Mary Adler: Yeah, I've kind of moved on to differential equations now.

Frank Adler: Don't forget your manners. Thank your grandma.

Mary Adler: Thank you, Grandma.

Evelyn: Grandmother or Evelyn will do just fine. There's so much more on there. Things I know you'll find really challenging.

Frank Adler: Yes, but sadly it's a school night, and there's homework to do. What a surprise, though, right? Say good night to Grandmother or Evelyn.

Mary Adler: Good night.

Mary Adler: [in her counseling session] My best friend, other than Frank and Fred, is Roberta who lives a couple houses away.

Pat Golding: Really? What's she like?

Mary Adler: She's nice and funny. And I love her.

Pat Golding: That's nice. Is Roberta your only friend your age?

Mary Adler: Roberta's not my age. She's like 40, 50... 30-something. Roberta's grown woman? People my age are boring. Roberta's cool.

Frank Adler: This family has a history with those schools. And I think the last thing that little girl needs is reinforcement that she's different. Trust me, she knows. So... I think Mary. I think she's gotta be here. Today's a bad ending, you can't hit people. But a 12 year old bullies a 7 year old and she stands up? Do you know how important that is to me that she did that? You know how proud I am of her? Aren't you?

Gloria Davis: Mr. Adler, your daughter shattered a young boy's...

Frank Adler: I know. You can't hit people. That will be made very clear. I get that. But Miss Davis, if we seperate our leaders... If we segregate them from people like you and me... you get congressman.

Roberta Taylor: Don't tell me that. There's nothing you can say that's gonna make me feel good because I have no say in any of this, Frank. I'm not a blood relative! I'm not a legal guardian! I'm nothing! Just a lady who lives next door whose opinions mean nothing, whose feelings mean nothing! Would I like to have Mary tonight? I'd like to have Mary every night.
