Stepmom……My most recent favourite movie

Isabel: Look down the road to her wedding. I’m in a room alone with her, fixing her veil, fluffing her dress, telling her no woman has ever looked so beautiful. And my fear is she’ll think, “I wish my mom were here.”
Jackie Harrison: And my fear is… she won’t.

Isabel: You know, I never wanted to be a mom. Sharing it with you… that’s one thing. It’s another to be looking over my shoulder for the next twenty years, knowing someone else would have done it better… someone else would have done it right.
Jackie Harrison: What do you have that I don’t?
Isabel: You’re Mother Earth, incarnate.
Jackie Harrison: You’re… hip, and fresh.
Isabel: You ride with Anna.
Jackie Harrison: You’ll learn.
Isabel: You know every story, every wound, every memory. Their whole life’s happiness is wrapped up in you… every single second. Don’t you get it? Look down the road to her wedding. I’m in a room alone with her, fixing her veil, fluffing her dress, telling her no woman has ever looked so beautiful. And my fear is she’ll be thinking, “I wish my mom was here.”
Jackie Harrison: And mine is… she won’t.

Jackie Harrison: You know, Ben was born in two hours, went right to the breast, and camped there for 4 days. His blanket looked just like a cape, even the nurses thought so. He loves hearing that story about how he was born a magician.
Isabel: What about her?
Jackie Harrison: 28 hours. The doctors wanted to go in and get her, but I knew she’d come at her own time. You can never rush her.
Isabel: I’ll keep that in mind.

Isabel: You look tired.
Jackie Harrison: I hate when people say that. It’s like a polite way of telling you that you look like shit.

Jackie Harrison: You don’t use that kind of language in this house!
Isabel: …and if every time life hits her hard you want to have a twelve hour conversation every third Tuesday of the month, go right ahead, lady, I have a life.
Jackie Harrison: Oh, and I don’t?
[scoffs]
Jackie Harrison: You know what your problem is? You are so self-involved. You couldn’t be a mother.
Isabel: Maybe the problem here is your daughter, and that she is a spoiled, wise-ass little brat.
Jackie Harrison: Get out of my house. Get out!
Isabel: [pause, she turns to go] Are you sure? I didn’t see that on the schedule.
