1. Changing the Toilet Paper Roll
(Good Will Hunting)

Me: "Look. Maybe I don't want to spend the rest of my f*ckin' life sittin' around explaining sh*t to people."

Kid: "I think you could show me some appreciation."

Me: "A little appreciation? Do you know how easy this is for me? Do you have any f*ckin' idea how easy this is? This is a f*ckin' joke. And I'm sorry you can't do this. I really am because I wouldn't have to f*ckin' sit here and watch you fumble around and f*ck it up."

Kid: "Then you'd have more time to sit around and get drunk instead, wouldn't you?"

Me: "You're right. This is probably a total waste of my time."

2. When Your Kids Become Teenagers

Me: "I don't want to do this anymore."

Husband: "I don't think that's a decision you can make."

3. The First Time Your Teen Says "I Hate You"
(Badlands)

Me: "At this moment, I didn't feel shame or fear, but just kind of blah, like when you're sitting there and all the water's run out of the bathtub."

4. Another School Volunteer Request
(No Country For Old Men)

Husband: "You don't have to do this."

Me: "People always say the same thing."

Husband: "What do they say?"

Me: "They say, 'You don't have to do this.'"

Husband: "You don't."

Me: "OK."

5. Mom Love
(Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows)

Teen: "After all this time?"

Me: "Always."
