  • "Oh no!"
  • "It just needs a little soy sauce."
  • When she is nine, Waverly is featured in LIFE Magazine as a child prodigy. Her mother rewards her by not making her do chores or sleep in the room by the busy street. Waverly feels that her mom only wants to show her off in the market and runs away.

  • Waverly wants her mother's approval so she sets up a dinner in order for Rich to meet her mother, Lindo. Rich does not know Chinese customs and agrees that the food that Lindo cooked only needs some soy sauce. Later that night, Rich thinks the evening went well but Waverly knows better.
  • Waverly tells her mother that she and Rich are getting married. Lindo tells Waverly that she already knows. They get in an argument and Waverly lets her mom know that she is tired of fighting and not sure who she is inside. Lindo tells Waverly about her ancestors.
  • In the hair salon, Lindo sees her face and Waverly's face in the mirror. She notices how similar they are to each other. She sees both American features and Chinese features and wonders which one is better. She states that "if you show one, you must sacrifice the other."
