"Nobody loves America more than I do, you know. That's why we left, because I couldn't bare to watch. You kids have got to understand this. Like when my mother died, she'd been strong as an ox, fell down, broke her hip, went into the hospital and caught double pneumonia. She's laying in bed dying and I went over and held her hand. She looked up to me and you know what she said? "Why don't you give me some rat poison?" Couldn't listen, couldn't watch, so I went away. People said that I was at the height of callousness, it's not true. I loved her too much to watch her die." -- Allie, The Mosquito Coast
