Fiction
2008. 'Provenance: Unknown'
"There were so many things we didn't know about them, and the life they had before. For example, why did Daddy's first family - his wife, Hannah, and his twins, Leo and Tillie, all die in a concentration camp while he survived? You'd think we'd know something like that. But our parents made it absolutely clear that we were not to ask, and that if we did, they wouldn't tell. There were a lot of secrets in our house - secrets about terrible things, too terrible to ever talk about."
2007. 'The Last Ride'
The meeting is in full swing. Cavalry Officer Carroll is addressing the crowd of some two dozen people.

CARROLL
So we are not trying to make you afraid quite the opposite. Building forts along the Bozeman trail will give the army good observation posts to ensure your safety. The slightest hint of trouble, and we can be on hand.

JEN
Im telling you, Mr. Carroll, the Blackfoots will see your forts as a direct provocation. Do you even have the right to build them? Isnt the land along the trail theirs?

CARROLL
The U.S. Government cares enough about its citizens to take steps for their safety. Remember, Madam, these are dangerous men. It would be risky to let your admiration for the noble savage turn you into an enemy sympathizer.

2000. 'In the Child's Best Interests'
INT. Child Welfare Office, New York City, 1993. Day.

CHILD WELFARE OFFICER
I wanted you to know that Mrs. Parsons has requested regular weekend visits with Kareem, and we've approved her request.

ELEANOR
We've got plans this weekend.

CHILD WELFARE OFFICER
Well, you'll have to cancel them. I'm sorry, but those are her rights.

ELEANOR
And what about my rights?

CHILD WELFARE OFFICER
In these circumstances, I'm afraid you don't have any.
