4. This scene that gets me every time. "I know what to say Homer. I love you, and

I'll never leave you..." spoken by his girlfriend in the film- Wilma - after Homer is assuming she'll just leave him now that he's returned from war missing his hands.

It gets me because I think my mother probably said something similar to my father, a WW ll chaplain, missing both arms.

Her father said to her, when he learned of her new love for my father: "You walk along a path in the woods... and why do you have to pick up the broken branch?"

Luckily for me -and my four brothers- she ignored her father's disapproval and married my father anyway. And never left him.
