Yes, he convinced me that

people beyond my regular subscribers

might find them interesting.

Well, you've been on

best-seller lists all over the country,

so, I guess King was right.

Yes, I guess he was, much to my surprise.

Although, don't tell him I admitted that.

No, you don't!

No, you don't! Don't you take

that child out of his car seat!

Burt's gonna be home any second now.

You know how he gets

around bawling babies.

Yeah, nice to see you, too, Ma.

Night shifts and crying kids don't mix.

You can understand that.

I understand all right, about Burt's moods,

more than you want to know.

Don't you start, Violet.

Burt ain't much, but he's all I got.

I got nothing and I still don't envy you.

What is it you came for, Violet?

Well, I thought you might like

to see your grandson, is all.

You can't con me, girl.

Don't even try.

I got fired this morning.

I'm surprised the old geezer

kept you around as long as he did.

Look, I think

I'm coming down with something.

Charlie's still really colicky

and he won't sleep.

I got no place to live,

and less than $30 to my name,

and a baby to feed.

Maybe it's time to face facts.

Give Charlie to someone

who can care for him.

- Mommy, please...

- I don't have any money to give.

If I did, I would, which is why

you came by here in the first place,

'cause I'm a sucker.

Now, you get into that truck

and you get out of here

before Burt gets back

and we both end up homeless.

We only have a few minutes left, Peyton,

to talk about your column on

making tough decisions

under impossible circumstances.

So, let me ask you...

What was I thinking, Charlie?

Asking her for help.

Has there been a time in your own life

when circumstances left you unable to cope?


And how did you react to the situation?
