A Woman Scorned: The Betty Broderick Story (1992 TV Movie)
Jandi Swanson: Debbie Broderick
Dan Broderick : I know this isn't the exact ring you asked for, but I thought it'd be more of a surprise. And you know... I kind of like this one better.
Betty Broderick : [surprised] You liked it better?
Dan Broderick : Well... uhh...
Betty Broderick : [calmly] Yes, you liked it better. And that's what counts, really, I mean, that's what it's all about. You make it, you spend it on what you want.
Dan Broderick : [flabbergasted] Geez, Bets, it isn't like it cost any less.
Betty Broderick : [becoming ballistic] Exactly! So, why not get me what I want? *You* certainly got what you wanted, even though you had to spend an extra 7 grand to get it when you wanted it!
Debbie Broderick : [frightened] Can you guys just cool it?
Dan Broderick : [smirking] It's Christmas. If your Mom wants to behave like a spoiled brat, let's let her.
Betty Broderick : What kind of person gets his wife a Christmas present she *doesn't* even want?
Dan Broderick : [calmly, while clutching Betty's wrist as she holds the ring box] It's a beautiful ring.
Betty Broderick : [screams] *But it's not what I asked for!* So that makes it a piece of crap!
