Quotes

[Danny consoles his son, Rusty]
Danny Williams: I love you just as you are, I wouldn't want you any other way. I think you're the greatest kid in the whole world. I thank God everyday that you're mine.
Rusty Williams: Even though I'm a weakling?
Danny Williams: Oh, stop saying that. You're not a weakling! You keep on exercising, and you're gonna be strong as a bull! These exercises are gonna make you real strong!
Rusty Williams: Well, I don't know, Daddy. How can I exercise to get strong, when I'm not strong enough to exercise?
