i've always had so much more sympathy for her than for claire

“I accidentally set my grandmother’s house on fire when I was six. Caused a blackout in four counties in Ohio when I was eight. I spent my ninth birthday in a glass room with an I.V. of lithium in my arm. I’ve lived in this building for sixteen years… ever since the shrinks here diagnosed me as a homicidal sociopath with paranoid delusions. But… they were just out to get me because I threatened to kill ‘em. Now, I’m 24 years old and I’ve never gone on a date… never been on a roller coaster, never been swimming. And now you know everything there is to know about me. I don’t have the luxury of being more interesting than that.
