Then Errol present her little starlet. Irene asks her if her daughter. As dry, Errol looks at her and says:
"Not. This is my granddaughter."

-Not you, Martin?
Not really. You know what I think of your brother. It is not Jewish, this man! What kind of man sold off his wife after 25 years to fall in love with a secretary 25 years?
-Unfortunately, many men choose their secretary.
Bobby says she is superb.
-The physical is not everything! And righteousness? And faithfulness? You're not a Miss but I stayed.
You drank enough.
-Love is an emotion. The emotions are not rational. We "fall" in love.
Dear Bobby, It's raining today. Very nice, but a little melancholy. Leonard sees the poignancy of life:

Yes, I loved you and I loved Phil. I was with him for a year and a half and you were ... left but adorable, manic, young, romantic, a little lost.

We all fear of death. But it does not abandon the religion that we were born.
-I'm not afraid to die.
You're too stupid to understand what it means.
-I'm not saying that I like the idea.
And I repulse death with all my strength. But when the Angel of Death will take my last breath, I will go. I complain. I swear. You hear me ? I will go complaining to me.

-It's stupid that Judaism does not offer life after death. They would have a lot more customers.

Happy New Year my love.
-With you, every year is new and happier.
Thank you, that's really sweet. What are you thinking about ?

Time flies, a new stage in this bewildering journey to where?

Some feelings never die.
