"Death Sentence" with Kevin Bacon in Columbia, 2006

"When I was 8 years old, I was called into the principal's office and my father was looking very solemn. And he said, 'We gotta go. It's Grandma.' We got in the car and I said, 'What's wrong with Grandma?" and he said, 'Nothing, we're going to the movies.'" ~Sam Rockwell
