- It was like a strange journey into my imagination. At last I was seeing places my father talked about endlessly. It was like travelling back in time.
- You hugged your aunt for all you were worth. Me, all my childhood friends, my brother Casimiro, all my old friends, there's no one left. A long life is a gift from God. But there is a price to pay.
- Well, well, our director wants a free ride.
