“Dr. Clair looked at Layton. The mancala pieces were still in her hand.

If Angela Ashforth ever says anything like that to you again, you tell her that just because she's insecure about being a little girl in a society that puts an inordinate amount of pressure on little girls to live up to certain physical, emotional and ideological standards -- many of which are improper, unhealthy and self-perpetuating -- doesn't mean she has to take her misplaced self-loathing out on a nice boy like you. You may be inherently a part of the problem but that doesn't mean you aren't a nice boy with nice manners and it certainly doesn't mean you have AIDS."

I'm not sure I can remember all that," Layton said.

Well then, tell Angela that her mother is a white trash drunk from Butte.”
