There’s an old proverb that says you can’t choose your family. You take what fate hands you. And like them or not, love them or not, understand them or not, you cope. Then there’s the school of thought that says the family you’re born into is simply a starting point. They feed you, clothe you, and take care of you until you’re ready to go out into the world. There you find your own tribe.

Sweeney Todd: You lied to me.
Mrs Lovett: No, no, not lied at all. No I never lied. Said she took the poison she did, never said that she died. Poor thing, she lived, but it left her weak in the head.

I’d be twice the wife she was, I love you. Could that thing have cared for you like me?
