    "Just when you think things can't get any worse, sometimes they don't. Sometimes they get better."

    This gets so ridiculous, that I think it comes back around to good? Kind of love the ending, and that redeems some of the lesser bits in the middle. All in all, not bad! Wish that the Dewey/Gale romance got more play of course. This is played pretty straight, and could have used a dose more of silly.

    "How "what-a" can you get?"

    "It's probably more spiritual like this... I mean, the Dalai Lama doesn't do it."

    Funny, thoughtful, but emotionally intense. If you've ever been close to an adult with a mental or emotional disablement of anything like this kind this rings incredibly true and sad and hard and exhausting. This also highlights the way the family is often partially tinged by the same spectrum, even if technically functional, everyone struggles because not only is it difficult to handle those relationships on…
