  • In this episode, Tom reveals he was adopted when he was two months old.


Tom: Adoption is always a very delicate and complicated issue. I was adopted myself when I was two months old.

Sister Julienne: Well, I'm sure that will make you much more sensitive to Mrs. Wallace's situation.

Tom: I hope so. I don't know what happened when I was born, but my adoptive parents were wonderful. And I've never doubted that my mother did her best for me.

Phyllis: And we'll do our best for this poor mother. Every care taken, and no questions asked.
