after all, we are pod mates. another martha-ism. i call it the pea pod bond. you know, the bond that exists between parent and child; you and me, you and alexis. we’re all peas in a pod. and whether we like it or not, anyone who’s ever had a child is in the pod — forever.
alright, everybody, i need your attention, attention, attention please. ahem. this is a very serious moment…two priests, a rabbi, and a duck — alright, i’m kidding! um, i would like to propose a toast to the one thing in my life that is always good, always sweet…and without whom, i would have no reason to get up in the morning. my pal rory, cheers! and in honor of this very special girl, i now invite you all to help me eat her face.
you know i never had a real mum and dad, yeah? when i was your age, it made me very angry. and i was so confused. and i don’t want that for you. i guess i brought you here because…there’s two parts of you, yeah? one of them is me, and the other is your dad. do you get that?
