DAVID ROSSI, Criminal Minds, "Public Enemy" (2010)
If I understood my father's insanity I'd be a much happier man.
LEX LUTHOR, Smallville, "Krypto" (2005)
I've heard of fathers demanding a lot of their sons, but asking you to commit a murder? That goes way beyond "domineering dad"!
CHLOE SULLIVAN, Smallville, "Vessel" (2006)
A heart beats only so many times in a life. Your father used his more than anyone I know.
MARTHA KENT, Smallville, "Reckoning" (2006)
How do we forgive our fathers? Maybe in a dream. Do we forgive our fathers for leaving us too often, or forever, when we were little? Maybe for scaring us with unexpected rage, or making us nervous because there never seemed to be any rage there at all? Do we forgive our fathers for marrying, or not marrying, our mothers? Or divorcing, or not divorcing, our mothers? And shall we forgive them for their excesses of warmth or coldness? Shall we forgive them for pushing, or leaning? For shutting doors or speaking through walls? For never speaking, or never being silent? Do we forgive our fathers in our age, or in theirs? Or in their deaths, saying it to them or not saying it? If we forgive our fathers, what is left?
THOMAS BUILDS-THE-FIRE, Smoke Signals (1998)
If the test of a man is how he treats those he has power over, it was a test my father failed...maybe if he'd been a better father, I'd be a better son. But I am what I am because of him, for better or for worse.
DR. GREGORY HOUSE, House M.D., "Birthmarks" (2008)
Fathers are the ones that pick you up and give you the courage to do stuff you never thought you could.
MONIQUE VASQUEZ, The Game Plan (2007)
Paying for the sins of your father can be a bitch.
BAERN, Smallville, "Fallout" (2006)
My father taught me to understand that certain things are in God's hands. But for everything else, God has given us the gift of choice. My father gave me the tools to fight my battles ahead. Every hand I extend in kindness is his hand. And every blow that I strike for justice is his fist. So long as the lessons he taught stay with me, and so long as he lives on in my heart, then my father is never truly dead.
HIRO NAKAMURA, Heroes, "Chapter Nine 'Cautionary Tales'" (2007)
Who my father was matters less than my memory of him.
NARRATOR, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, "Death Trap" (2010)
