A snapshot in the family album\\
Daddy, what else did you leave for me?\\
Daddy, what'd you leave behind for me?!\\

->'''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.

->''"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 pres]]s. 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."''
