Quote #7

George: He's like that now. He'd like to take every man who made money in the war and put him up against a wall. (2.417)

Steve has gotten a lot more "eye for an eye" since he was imprisoned.

Quote #8

Mother: As long as you live, that boy is alive. God does not let a son be killed by his father. Now you see, don't you? Now you see. (2.519)

Kate needs God (and horoscopes) to understand how her and her husband's actions make sense in the world.

Quote #9

Keller: How can I pay?
Mother: Tell him… you're willing to go to prison. (3.56)

Kate doesn't really suggest this because she believes Keller deserves it. Offering to go to prison is more like a gesture to Chris. She wants to hold on to at least one son.
