- “You may not believe this, but I once was a baby myself. My father was a ping-pong champion. He died when the ball got stuck in his throat. The Heimlich maneuver was invented the very next day. My mother raised me alone, so I know it can be done and wanted to be the teacher”
- ―Madam Wu
Madam Wu was the adoption center worker who battled with Selma Bouvier when she was trying to adopt her baby.
When Madam Wu was just a baby, her father choked to death on a ping-pong ball the day before the Heimlich maneuver was invented. As a result, her mother ultimately raised her as a single parent--this is what ultimately leads to her agreeing to let Selma Bouvier adopt Ling as a single parent.
