Drew has a panic attack prior to her estranged father's funeral, and is confronted
by Jayna, her late father's fiancee. Jayna attempts to convince Drew that her
abusive father deserves her forgiveness now that he is dead. Drew refuses politely,
but Jayna does not accept this. Cornered and defensive, Drew finally explodes at
Jayna, and by extension, at her deceased father.

This is your last chance to say goodbye to your father.
I said goodbye five years ago. And good riddance.
I know there were some dark times--
You don't know the half of it.
You haven't stopped to think about all the good things your father did for you. If he were here right
now, he would tell you how much he loved you. He would tell you all the wonderful things he remembers
about you when you were growing up.
God! What do you know? You weren't there! You don't know what it was like! You have no idea what
you're talking about!
I know a lot more than you think. I know he put everything he had into giving you a better life than
he had. Your parents weren't meant for each other, and they had a messy divorce. But it takes two
people to fight, Drew.
It only takes one person to break a door down.
