River Phoenix on the ambitions of himself and his siblings.
"We all have our distinct things. Leaf was the family clown - very witty, very smart. Mom had to work a lot, so Rainbow was the mother and the older sister and trendsetter.

And Summer was the youngest, the baby of the family with big brown eyes and blond hair, more American-looking."
River Phoenix on his brother and sisters.
