Added DiffLines:

**In a moment that may cross into TearJerker, Ramona comes home from school and discovers she's locked out of the house because Dad is late getting home. It's raining, and Ramona soon becomes frightened of things like strangers, big dogs, and "big hairy men on motorcycles" that might try to "get" her. This makes it especially heartwarming when Dad gets home and profusely apologizes.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Ramona & Her Mother'': "How could I get along without my Ramona?"
* ''Ramona Quimby, Age 8'': When the family arrives at the Whopperburger, an older man asks Ramona if she's been good to her mother. Later, that same man is revealed to have paid for the family's meals despite being them total strangers to him.

Added DiffLines:
