Miss Bunting: Have I finished us before we ever really even got started? Tom: You pitted yourself against them from the start. How can you retreat from that position? Miss Bunting: You mean I have made it them or me? Tom: Haven't you? You despise the family, but I think you forget that my wife was one of them. My child is one of them. Where does that leave me? Miss Bunting: don't you despise them? Really? Tom: No, I don't. I would like things to change, but I don't think in black and white terms anymore. Miss Bunting: Well I do.
