Background Info: She is talking to her mother in the scene.

What were you going to say? Let me guess... you're just a kid. That's what it always boils down to, isn't it? But, just like any other human on this planet, I do have feelings. Yes, I do. I feel pain. I feel sadness and sometimes like my life's not worth anything.

But, I'm always too young to understand right? Then tell me, when are my feelings going to count for something? When is my life going to mean something? If us "kids" really are just kidding ourselves, and we just don't experience any true emotions, Then how is it that so many adult are screwed up because their childhood was a mess? You know why? Because they did feel something. It's because no one bothers to pay attention to you because your feelings aren't real.

It happened to you, so what are you letting it happen to me? Your no different than your mother, and her mother before her, your just like everyone else, continuing this... this vicious cycle! Where's it going to stop Mom?
