->'''Indiana Jones:''' It was just the two of us, dad. It was a lonely way to grow up. For you, too. If you had been an ordinary, average father like the other guys' dads, you'd have understood that.

->''The weekly phone calls became monthly, then only on special occasions, then stopped altogether. When Mum told us his new wife had just given birth, we knew it was only a matter of time before even the birthday presents ceased. And cease they did. Everything ceased. Even Mum's child support. We older two had expected it--just never guessed he would erase us all from his life quite so fast.''

We older two had expected it--just never guessed he would erase us all from his life quite so fast. I clearly remember that moment after the final good-bye, after the front door had closed and the sound of Dad's car faded down the street. Huddled up against the pillows with my new cuddly dog and the picture of the house I knew I'd never get to visit, I was suddenly overcome by a huge surge of rage and hatred for a father who had once claimed to love me so much.''

->''"Angelo pretty much split shortly after she was born, and only resurfaced once she got famous (ah, classic Hollywood cockroach parenting). Then he kind of split again after she wouldn’t let him hump on her bank account, and was estranged from her for the last 8 years of her life. But that hasn’t stopped him from using the name ''[=@BrittMurphyDad=]'' on {{Twitter}} or re-launching investigations into her death and [[AttentionWhore running to the press]]. But Angelo is so shook-up at the idea that anyone would exploit Britney’s death for profits! Well, you know, [[HypocriticalHumor besides him]]...the second Angelo heard that [[LifetimeMovieOfTheWeek Lifetime]] had made an biopic about his daughter, he immediately called up his lawyer (who I’m guessing is probably [[Series/BreakingBad Saul Goodman]]) because he wants to make sure he sees a cut of the profits."''
