Sam calling her dad a liar, the mom asked what he told her, and SAm replied
"i just told her the russians arn't going to hurt her"
and the mom snaps back asking if Sam has recently seeing the news. i mean what does she want him to say "yes kimberly the russian are going to kill you and your brother".
I think the problem there lies in that Sam was giving her what the mother thought was a false sense of security. I don't think the mother wanted him to say that the Russians were going to come and kill them but rather to just not say anything at all. We have never come closer to nuclear war than we did for that period of time during the Cuban Missile Crisis. It wasn't really a matter of "if" there was an attack but rather "when" that attack would come.
