Max : [ During the song about Kellerman's, just before it's interrupted by Johnny Castle ] You and me, Tito. We've seen it all, eh? Bubbah and Zeda serving the first pasteurized milk to the boarders. Through the war years, when we didn't have any meat. Through the Depression, when we didn't have anything. Lots of changes, though, Max. It's not the changes so much this time. It's that it all seems to be ending. You think kids want to come with their parents and take fox-trot lessons? Trips to Europe, that's what the kids want. Twenty-two countries in three days. It feels like it's all slipping away.
The great lesson is that the
sacred is in the ordinary, that it is to
be found in one's daily life, in one's neighbors, friends, and
family, in one's backyard.
- Abraham Maslow
