The hurt, the suffering


Still feeling like quoting some memorable lines from some of my favorite movies. Here`s one from Parenthood:

Frank: You know, when you were two years old, we thought you had polio. Did you know that?
Gil: Yeah, Mom said… something about it a couple of years ago.
Frank: Yeah, well, for a week we didn’t know. I hated you for that.
[Gil looks surprised and hurt]
Frank: I did. I hated having to care, having to go through the pain, the hurt, the suffering. It’s not for me.

I was 9 years old when this film was released, I think I watched the next year and several years later, but only grasped its significance and story until a few years ago. This might have been my first Ron Howard film, by the way.
