Ernesto Guevara de la Serna: Even though we are too insignificant to be spokesmen for such a noble cause, we believe, and this journey has only confirmed this belief, that the division of American into unstable and illusory nations is a complete fiction.

Ernesto Guevara de la Serna: Mother.

Mother Sister Alberto: Yes?

Alberto Granado: We want to eat.

Ernesto Guevara de la Serna: We deserve to eat like everyone else.

Mother Sister Alberto: Yes, but you didn't go to mass.

Ernesto Guevara de la Serna: No.

Mother Sister Alberto: Then, how do you expect to feed the body if you didn't feed the soul first?

Alberto Granado: Er, denying food is not very Christian-like.

Ernesto Guevara de la Serna: Yes, I doubt Jesus would act like this.

Mother Sister Alberto: In this house, we have a set of rules that have to be followed.

Ernesto Guevara de la Serna: [to Alberto now, as she turns away] I haven't read any rule book.

Alberto Granado: Neither did I. I think that if I find it I would eat it.
