Jonathan Steinbloom (Bob Balaban): "She was very protective. You could say she was overly protective. I just like to think she cared about me. Which she did, a lot. And I was a member of the chess team. And whenever we would have chess tournaments, I had to wear a protective helmet. I had to wear a football helmet. Now, who knows what she was thinking? Maybe she thought that we might have fallen maybe and impaled our heads on a pointy bishop or something, I don't know."
