In Siren Is The Night, Crystal is a teen living on the streets and while hanging out alone in a parking lot during winter, Bud tries to help her with money.
CRYSTAL: Maybe I just got the wrong father, right? RIGHT? Maybe I’m supposed to have this horrible f’n life. You know, some people have yachts and mansions as if it’s expected. They drink the finest wine and attend extravagant parties as if it’s forever. Maybe living out here on the street, freezing to death is what I should expect, maybe this is my forever.
You wanna come here giving me money, like I owe you an explanation. I don’t owe you nothin’! Trying to shame me in a nice way. I ain’t falling for it. Not one bit, (sarcastic) BUD.
You go back to your privileged life, with your kids and your house and this fancy truck, and all your cash and forget I even existed. Forget your stupid story about knowing my father at the lumber yard. WHAT LUMBER YARD? Like I knew the man. Who cares? Who freaking cares?! You can stick your lumber yard story where the sun refuses to shine.
(threatening) If you don’t put your car in drive mode, I’m a scream till my face turns blue.
