Abandonment and Death Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #10

He brought his hammer down on the table and I was sold. (20.12)

Joey may not be shaking in his horseshoes, but we sure are. We don't think we could handle it if Joey were taken away from his family again. Joey's lack of panic either shows his confidence that things will turn out okay or proves that he is completely oblivious to everything going on.
