He's a sweet boy, Mona. I approve of him wholeheartedly.
You make it sound like we're married or something.
There are all kinds of marriages, dear.
I don't think you understand the trip with me and Michael.
Mona, lots of things are more binding than sex. They last longer too.

I remember watching this on PBS when it first came out, and how absolutely riveting I found it. Never had I watched something and been so wrapped up in it. The characters were brilliantly written and brilliantly portrayed by the excellent cast. This program succeeded in bringing to life a time and place where you really did "have to be there". This program takes you there. Whether you're into countercultures, history, or just plain entertainment, there is no other program that I could more wholeheartedly recommend.
