Norma: I hear ya, but I can't take care of my self, I'm a mother. Now I have to go talk to my horrible brother. You know what? I have no choice because it is important to my sons.
James: Yeah? And what about your own needs?
Norma: Parents do not have needs. You ever read the book The Giving Tree? It's about this tree and this kid keeps coming and taking stuff from it his whole life until there's nothing left but a stump and then the kid sits on the stump. That's being a parent.

My son isn't normal, there's something wrong with him.

Emma: You have no idea how much this family means to me, how much I want to be a part of it, but never am.
Dylan: I understand.

Norman: I want my mother. I want my mother.
Emma: That's gotta be a mantra. Maybe he'll feel safer.

Hey, ya think it's OK to get a guy all worked up and then leave?! You're a freakin' mess lady!!

Norma, you need to come. Norman is losing it, OK. I don't know what to do with him. Mom, please.
