Liza: I've told her. Believe me, I've told her, and it's only making it worse. I just don't want her to hate me.
David: Believe me, being liked by everyone isn't at all what it's cracked up to be. There's something to be said for stirring the pot.
Amanda: But I could be. I've done the research, Jake. I know that some mental illness is genetic, and what if what is making my mom sick was passed down to me?
Jake: Yeah, genetics have something to do with it, but that's only half the story. Now, your father's genes, that's the other half, right? It is, and there's a lot of other factors you have to take into consideration, Babe. Three's lifestyle, there's stress, there's your family's support system growing up. Yes, your family might have a history of mental illness, but that does not mean that it's going to affect you, it's gonna become your problem. It does not mean that. It's like any other disease.
Amanda: Well, it doesn't guarantee that I won't either. I mean, what if, you know. Is there as test that I can take that proves that I don't have the crazy that my mom has?
Jake: No, there is no test for crazy, but I can tell you what I see. I can see the way you raise our child, the way you love him. It's pure, and it's selfless. That's the best kind of love. It is. The best kind of love. And you do it so that he's set up in this life to take his own journey, to take his own path in this world, and even if that pathway takes him away from us, away from you, and that's how I know that you are nothing like your mother.
