Joyce refuses and rebukes her parents for their hypocrisy.
- Bonus points for it being based in her Christianity, rather than in defiance of it.
Joyce: Jesus says to love your neighbor as yourself. Luke 10:27. That's everyone. Not just people we like. Not everyone except the Samaritans. Everyone. And so I will not act likeŚlike a jerk to my best friend and her family. Anyway, that's what the Son of God says. He is my higher authority, my moral foundation. Not you.
