Rocco: Is it dead?
Rocco: I killed your cat, you druggie bitch.
Donna: God.
Rayvie: What?
Donna: Why?
Rocco: I thought it would bring closure to our relationship.

skatull Beyond Mere Correlation (490 comments)

My two cent's, offer more logic, rhetoric and critical thinking in the schools. (and perhaps on the School Board)
