    • Louie: (breaking up a fight between Latka and a Hispanic mechanic) Knock it off! You guys shouldn't be fighting. You're like brothers! You're both from countries you have to take a pill for.

    • Latka: You know, in my country we have a saying: "Your father, he may beat you. Your father, he may curse you. Your father, he may take your last piece of meat..."
      Alex: Go on.
      Latka: That's all.
      Bobby: You mean that's the whole saying?
      Latka: Yeah, it's a small country.

  • NOTES (1)

    • The subplot of Alex mistaking the old man for his estranged father came from James L. Brooks' real life. Brooks' own father had abandoned himself and his mother. Brooks entered a hospital room, saw a frail looking old man, addressed him as "Daddy," and then found out he was in the wrong room. His long unseen father was in the next room in realitivly good health.
