Show me the mother, and I'll show you the child.

Amanda

I won't lie D, that scares me more than anything in the whole world. I think I could handle anything except that. It just gets me all tangled up inside, so it took me a while to remember that love is stronger than fear and when lives are on the line that's when love should be it's strongest, not it's weakest. So, I'm sorry that I didn't remember that.

Frank

Claudia Joy: Michael?
Michael: We almost lost you.

Everyone lives with an element of risk in their lives, but we don't have to live with ignorance and fear. And we don't have to punish an 11 year old boy because we're too narrow minded to know better.

Roland

Roxy: Heads up. When they toast the President, he's not really here.
Gloria: Good to know!

[to Jordanna] You don't know a damn thing about my wife and me. It's none of your business.

Frank

Are you kidding me? Are you saying that now that Trevor's made officer, he's not officer enough?

Welcome, welcome everyone to another Independence Day picnic. Today we commemorate the courage of our forefathers who in 1776 through acts of bravery and self sacrifice guaranteed us the freedoms that we now see as our basic human rights. Those rights are still being protected, every hour every day, by our United States Military. I’ve spent weeks planning this party; the decorations, the food, the flowers. Because I want it to be perfect, perfect for all of us. That’s what I do, that’s what I love to do. This has been one of the most extraordinary weeks of my life. I feel both devastated and elated. Today I also feel shaken, I feel shaken by what has happened, wondering if I did enough, if I said enough could have changed the outcome. I married a committed military man. And I have loved this military life. I have also had to put my personal opinions aside, to truly understand that our defenders of freedom are fighting a bigger battle. Not a political one, there battle goes beyond politics. Beyond religion, race or gender. There the defenders for us all. There the defenders of our differences. As one soldier is taken away from us, another returns to us. There’s balance in the universe, a natural system of order. Look beside each soldier and you will find the people who fight with them. The spouses, the sons the daughters the families, we serve too. Their victories are our victories, there defeats are our defeats. Together we fight for our freedom. For 18 years I have tried to be the perfect wife and mother. Each day I disappoint myself. Human life isn’t about perfection, it is about accepting the flawed, the misguided parts of ourselves. We keep trying, we keep loving, we keep believing. I am proud of the role we play in maintaining piece in our country and in the world. I am proud to stand beside a man whose integrity shines like a diamond in the dust. And I am proud to call myself an army wife.

I particularly would like to thank my husband, Dr. Roland Burton. He has sacrificed beyond measure to reach this day. My husband and my daughter give me the strength and the reason to carry on. And, I can never thank them enough.

Joan

General Frank Sherwood. I like the sound of that.

Denise

Fastest way to a man's zipper; tight jeans, new haircut.

Roxy

What's to think about? He's your son.

I don't know how to get divorced.

Gloria

Am I really that scary, that you really can't talk to me?
