Madeline: Excuse me?
Mary Louise: I don't mean it in a negative way. Maybe I do. I find little people to be untrustworthy. My apologies. I pride myself on being a very good judge of character, but you have always presented such a difficult read. You seem like a nice person, loving, but also, you strike me as a wanter.

Madeline: I'm not a wanter.
