Roger: I can't believe I wasn't here when Jason got hurt. Andy: He's fine... Stop beating yourself up. Roger: But what if I had been more serious?! What if it had been a real car that hit him and not just a toy one?! There I was off on some idiotic business trip! I wasn't around when my little boy needed me! I wasn't around when my little boy was hurt! Andy: Roger, you can't spend 24 hours a day hovering over your kids! What are you going to do? Quit your job?! Roger: Now there's a thought. Andy: I was kidding, Roger, kidding!
