The 45 record would not play properly without the adapter in the center hole. The record would slide around the turntable once the needle was placed on it and the music would become distorted and the speed of the music would vary - it would continue to speed up and slow down during the entire record.

Quotes
Agnes: [narrating] I remember when I was ten somebody gave me a diary for a present. But I felt like it was too late, so I didn't write in it. Too much had already happened. So, it wouldn't be the whole story. I feel that way again, and I'm fourteen. Nobody'd believe it. Ain't nobody to tell. A girl falls in the city, but nobody sees it. Did it happen?

Agnes: [narrating] I left my mother and the man I thought loved me in that house. I left my mother and my rapist in that house. I left my mother and my mother's pimp in that house. Look at all the people it takes to make up a person. Ain't that nothin'?

Agnes: [narrating] He probably won't kill me. It ain't happened yet. But, it's like when people tell you that their dog doesn't bite. How do they know?
