The question is.."father I'd like to have sex out of wedlock and I have to pay for it, is that okay with you? and that's NOT easy"Shireen: "That was a really good moment, because you turned around and said to him, I think god is going to give you a free pass on this one."The movie is based on a real person.WILLIAM H. MACY: "What makes this so lovely is that the guy mark obrien, even though he could not move from the chin down, he put himself through berkely, he was a successful writer, and a poet... he wrote some articles that's where this came from." And even though the topics are let's say, um, uncomfortable.WILLIAM H. MACY: "It's got 2 issues imparticular that make Americans want to go run and hide. Let's talk about disabilities and let's talk about sex."It's incredible to watch. I actually wept. Don't tell anyone. WILLIAM H.
