Karen Roe Quotes

Lucas: Did you change your hair?
Karen: If by "change," you mean "drag a brush through it," then yeah.

Then you said something I'll never forget. You said you felt bad for the kids who never figured it out because when they grew up and had kids of their own, there wouldn't be any gifts on Christmas morning. You're a good kid, Luke. But sometimes I feel like you're sitting out your life on account of me, and I don't want that for you. My past is not your future, okay?

Karen
