    • Erica: You feel like talking?
      Zayde: Not really.
      Erica: Look, I know that you're disappointed in me, but... I'm disappointed in you too. You really hurt my dad.
      Zayde: Don't get me started about your dad.
      Erica: He worked so hard tonight to give you the party that you wanted.
      Zayde: To give me the party? It's not for me. He's supposed to teach his kids.
      Erica: He teaches us things that are important to him.
      Zayde: No, you're young, you don't understand. What's important are the traditions.If you don't carry them on, you lose them.
      Erica: I know, Zayde, but-
      Zayde: No, you don't know. The fact is, if you were my kids, I'd never raise you like this. Not in a million years.

      Erica: But we're not your kids. And dad, he is not you, he is himself. He is a different man, in a different generation, raising his kids his way. And isn't he allowed, Zayde, to be his own person?
      Zayde: You raise your kids and you expect them to be like you. Now, maybe that's wrong, but that's the way it is.

      Erica: I think it's more than that. I think that we expect the people that we love, the people that we care about, to be like us
      in all kinds of ways, and when they're not, we're disappointed.
