Shay Potter

PLEASE START WITH EPISODE ONE FIRST. THIS IS THE FOURTH EPISODE OF THE SERIES.

Shay interviews her father about his childhood and asks difficult questions about his lack of involvement during her early years.

For most of her life, Shay wondered if the reason her father was so distant was that she was a girl. Despite the fact that many of their interests where the same, Shay’s father admits that he was disappointed she wasn’t a boy. Still, he asserts that it didn’t change his level of interest. 

This is the beginning of repairing their fractured relationship.

Shay’s interview with her father continues in Episode 5, ‘Rhythm & Blues, Pt. 2.’

Cast: Shay Potter, Merty Potter

Key Themes:

  • We are often a product of how we were raised.
  • Children desire a personal connection with their parents.
  • Your priorities determine your actions.
  • Music brings people together.
  • Memories have different meanings for different people.

Key Quotes:

1:05 — “He had no time to look at me no matter how desperately I wanted his glance.”

7:04 — “Fathers look forward to playing catch with their boys. It’s a special rite of passage. I often bucked this trend, defiantly dangling my kid-sized 10.5 cleats over those boundaries that separated my father and I.”

8:57 — “I did want a son, you know, and you turned out to be a girl. But that didn’t still change my level of interest in you. All I wanted to do was make sure you had everything.”- Shay’s father

16:36 — “I describe you in music. You know, your moods, where you are. I can tie it to specific songs. I know what your favorite songs are, your favorite artists, and it all comes from that music room.”

18:13 — “You had a child that lived every day with you and can only have these little moments, you know, with who this man was that was her father.”

18:51 — “Memories are always not as clear as we’d like them to be.”
