Burden of Truth Season 3 Episode 5: "Crisis of Faith" Quotes
Billy: I am never having kids.
Joanna: I'm pregnant.
Luna: You sent me to Millwood Police Station, where I was falsely arrested.
Joanna: You think I was being insensitive. You think I was only thinking about the case. I knew how hard it would be for you to ever come back here. That you wouldn't do it without a push. You are one of the strongest people I know Luna. I knew you could do it. If I didn't believe in you I wouldn't waste my time.
Luna: Thank you.
Joanna; And now you know you can come home.
Luna: So you're saying you did this for me and not for the case? Maybe both?
Joanna: You can head back if you want. But do you remember what you said to me when you found out we were sisters? It was stay. You asked me to stay.
Kodie: Right, so how do I fight someone who's above the law?
Joanna: I think you've been trying to tell me. The system isn't broken. It's working exactly as it was intended. So we don't need to fix the system we need to break it. We sue Cleardon Labs, we break a chain in that system. Then we take the decision back to family court, and we prove that family services stole your kids. This is my arena Kodie. I can see a way through this now. This is how we win.
Joanna: If you wanna sink our case, go ahead, take a sip.
Kodie: House arrest is hell.
Joanne: Where did you even get that?
Kodie: Worst day of my life happened here. Everyone keeps asking 'what can I do to help?' as long as they don't have to actually do anything.
Joanna: You should, uh, tell Owen how you feel.
Diane: That's not important right now.
Joanna: If you don't say anything, and he does something stupid its contributory negligence.
Diane: I have tried to talk to him, believe me. It's like I'm not even here.
Joanna: You ever feel like being with someone is a game of Russian roulette.
Diane: Whatever you're feeling right now, is okay.
Diane: It's positive. You're pregnant.
Joanna: Freezing. How did I fail the other pregnancy test? I have never failed a test in my life.
Diane: Don't tell my students this, but sometimes it's not the answers that are wrong. It's the test itself.
Joanna: Oh my god!
Joanna: What if Kodie didn't fail that test? What if the test itself is broken?
Joanna: You always keep pregnancy tests lying around?
Diane: I was a guidance counselor in Millwood for ten years. These and condoms were the bulk of my business.
Catherine: Our headmaster is unavailable. You'll have to make an appointment for another time.
Joanna: This school has the highest child apprehension rate in Millwood, and he can't even talk to us?
Catherine: I don't appreciate what you're insinuating.
Joanna: I'm not insinuating anything. I'm asking. Your school survives off children in the system, yes or no?
Catherine: Hey, we have to have pupils. Family Services survives off apprehending children. You would starve without clients.
Joanna: Are you saying that Millwood Family Services is financially incentivized to break up families?
Catherine: Their funding is dependant on apprehension.
Joanna: That is a blatant conflict of interest.
Catherine: Take it up with a judge. Everything we do here is by the book.
Luna: I can't imagine growing up without my mom. She was my hero. (Kat reacts) Kat, I'm sorry.
Kat: It's okay. I'm young. You assume my mom is still alive. It's what people do.
Luna: You never really talk about her.
Kat: Death freaks people out. I end up comforting them. It's just easier not to.
Luna: What about your dad?
Kat: You mean do we talk about her? Not really. I think we're both kind of afraid to remind each other that she;s gone.
Luna: You must miss her.
Kat: So much it hurts.
Owen: I'm under a lot of scrutiny. I have to keep my hands clean.
Luna: You always say sunlight is the best antiseptic. Unless your guys are hiding something.
Owen: Using my own values against me.
Luna: Or you can continue to cover for an organization that facilitates and legitimizes breaking up families.
Owen: Now you're just like your mother. She never gives up. But, that answer is still no.
Luna: I can file an accessed information order.
Owen: Now you're just like your sister.
Kat: It's time for a reclamation tour.
Luna: A reclamation tour?
Kat: You walk straight into the places that hurt you the most and reclaim them as new memories. Starting with the cop shop.
Luna: I like that. But I think I need to face the police station on my own.
Luna: Have you ever been happy? Like truly happy?
Kat: Wow. Okay. Uh- Usually, people start off with 'nice weather we're having,' but ... a long time ago, yeah. You?
Luna: I don't know. I thought I was for a minute and then ...
Kat: It just turns on a dime?
Luna: Millwood was my home and then suddenly it was my worst nightmare.
Joanna: Why do you keep fostering?
Pastor Parson: Because a lot of these foster homes aren't safe; these kids need somewhere to go. But once they're in the system, it's never a happy ending.
