Mellie: If you could tell me that you had sex with those two boys because it made you happy, because you wanted to, because you felt empowered and turned on… Karen, I am your mother so inside I am having a tiny seizure, still I would try hard to be supportive and happy for you. I don’t think that’s why you did it, I think that you were sad, I think you were feeling numb, I think you thought feeling something was better than feeling nothing. I think your brother died right in front of you, which means… you get one free pass. This was it, you do not get another.
