I'd have gone back in a life raft.

I had rented an ideal house

close to the Navy base... I could work part-time

in the dispensary, close to the school...

...close to the playground and a little

too close to the boy next door.

I was broad-minded about it, though.

I was gonna give that boy

two more seconds...

...before I went out there

and broke it up.

I hate ants. I hate ants. I hate ants!

Come on, this is really stupid.

Listen, what are you doing? What

are you...? You hate ants. Never mind.

Now, that belongs to her.

What is the matter with you?

You've been acting like this all week.

Mother, how's a person

supposed to hear?

Colleen, I'd like to know what's going

on between you and that boy.

And I don't care if he does look like

Paul Newman.

- Is the spanking over?

- No, it is not over.

Listen, what's gotten into you lately?

Where is that good little boy

that used to live here?

I'll never be a good boy again.

I'm never gonna be good.

I don't wanna die.

What are you talking about?

Nicky told me that the good die young,

and that's why Daddy died.

You can hit me and you can hit me,

but I'll never be a good boy again.

Funny. Beginning

of the school year...

...had never been a problem

to Frances.

The girls passed their dresses down

from one to another...

...and it all sort of came out even.

Have you ever been 5 years old

and forced to appear in public... a dress that had three former

owners, restyled by an old sail maker?

Five years old and no future at all.

And then one day, Frank and I just

happened to run into each other.

I'd been wrapped up in my children

for so long that getting this close... an attractive woman set my

early warning radar pulsing frantically.

I was glad to have a reason

for a second look myself.
