Oh no, you wanted me to be the you that you never became.
Rebecca: Kate, sweetheart, you sang incredibly, beautifully. You should be so happy right now.
Kate: Incredibly, beautifully? Why do you do that?
Rebecca: Do what? I'm complimenting you, I'm proud of you.
Kate: No, you feel sorry for me.
Rebecca: What on earth would make you think that Kate?
Kate: You overcompensate for me, mom, and you always have. And here I am a 37-year-old woman and you still me like a stupid fat little kid.
Rebecca: I'm sorry, what have I ever done to make you feel like that?
Kate: You existed. It's everything about you mom. It's not just that you're beautiful or thin or that you have perfect pitch even when you talk. It's everything. And you wanted a daughter like you. And I was never gonna be you.
Rebecca: I never wanted you to be like me, Kate.
Kate: Oh no, you wanted me to be the you that you never became.
