Quotes

[first lines]
Arnold Schwarzenegger as Julius: [in Twins movie] Do we look okay?
Hampton: See? Look at the picture. Look how it's slanting and jumping around.
Arnold: Yeah, I see that, Grandpa. It's the tracking. I'm trying to fix it.
Hampton: It normally doesn't look like that.
Arnold: I know. I'm working on it.

As is evident from the title of the episode, the focus is on the lives of old people.

Rachel's grandmother plays a pivotal role. Dwelling on the topic of alienation and man's estrangement in old age, this episode shows us how Americans ignore their parents and grandparents as and when they grow up.

I'm particularly fond of this episode because of its harsh reality. Whatever has been depicted is true.

Master of None, although a comedy, is proving and showing us the truth of life and American culture, again and again.

Hats off to this show!
