Mr. Barringer: It’s not something I wanted to believe. You’re my son!
Scott: And she was your wife!
Mr. Barringer: Yes, she was my wife. But you never said no. Not once did you have the guts to say no.
Scott: So what are you saying? That it’s my fault?

Scott: Hers! Don’t you get it? Hers! Not mine! Hers!
