Memorable Monologue: Meet the Parents

My Mother

by Jack Byrne

You gave me life,

You gave me milk,

You gave me courage.

Your name was Angela,

An angel from Heaven,

But you were also an angel of God,

And he needed you, too.

I selfishly tried to hold on to you,

While the cancer ate away at your organs,

Like an unstoppable rebel force,

And now we'll meet in Heaven,

And I shall see you

Nevermore, nevermore, nevermore.

~ Robert De Niro as Jack Byrne in Meet The Parents (2000)
