Orlando, Florida - They are tearful, private conversations in jail between Casey Anthony and her parents.

Casey is dressed in a blue jailhouse uniform with handcuffs on her wrists as she holds a phone up to her ear. In the first video, George and Cindy Anthony wore t-shirts with Caylee's picture on them.

But, it's the actual conversations between the young mother and her parents that have trial-watchers talking.

Casey's entire defense for this capital murder case is that her daughter, Caylee, was never missing. Instead, Casey's attorneys claim that the 2-year-old drowned in the family pool in June 2008.

It was one of the the firsts thing Jose Baez talked about during opening statements, as he outlined the defense's strategy. Baez claimed that Casey was sexually abused as a child by her father.  As a result of that abuse, Baez says, Casey learned to lie throughout her life.

In this case, Baez has maintained that Casey covered up the child's drowning in an effort to lie and make everything seem OK and "normal" in her life.

But, during the jailhouse conversations, Casey talks about the search for Caylee, despite the fact that her defense team claims that the child was never missing.

Is it a facade or the truth? Was the Anthony family pretending the entire time?

Those watching the videos from the trial say that George Anthony and his wife seemed incredibly sincere during the conversation with their daughter. Casey, herself, tells her father, "You are the best father and grandfather. I mean that with all my heart."

It would seem like an odd statement coming from a young woman who accused her father of vile sexual abuse throughout her childhood.

George Anthony told his daughter, "I miss your hugs. I'm sorry I was so hard on you."

Casey answers by saying, "Dad, it's not your fault.  It's a tough love."

During one conversation between Casey and her father, both of them were crying. George Anthony says to his daughter, "Hey beautiful, I miss you.  This little girl has captivated the world."

"I'd give my life for you and [Caylee]," he added.

Casey cries and says to her father, "I want to hear her laugh. All I want is Caylee home."

George told Casey, "You're a fighter. You have to keep fighting every day."

In a previous interrogation by Orange County detectives, Casey was told to "stop the lies and tell the truth."

Many people are asking, was she administered her Miranda rights prior to questioning? The simple answer is Casey was not under arrest during interrogations at her home and Universal, so Miranda rights were not needed.

Detectives let her know she was free to leave. 

The defense raised the Miranda and admissibility issues pre-trial, but the judge ruled everything was done properly. 

The prosecution says it expects to reach the halfway point of its case on Saturday.
