Jaime Escalante (Character)
from Stand and Deliver (1988)
[Escalante is eating in the Delgado family's restaurant, speaking with them about Ana's decision to drop out of Garfield High]
Jaime Escalante: She'll just get fat, waste her life away in your restaurant. You have to understand - she's a top student.
Mr. Delgado: I started washing dishes for a nickel an hour. Now I own this place. Did *I* waste *my* life?
Jaime Escalante: I washed dishes, too, when I first came to this country.
Mr. Delgado: Good! Why don't you put on an apron and give us a hand?
Jaime Escalante: ...Ana could go to college, come back, and teach you how to run this place.
