"In life we are defined by what we hate as much as we are by what we love, and maybe it would be bad to give up all that definition. Maybe without the Cacciamanis to hate, the Rosemans would simply be unable to carry on. Maybe the hate was our skeletal system, the very thing that allowed us to walk upright, and without it we would be nothing more than a lump of skin and muscle on the floor."-excerpt, Julie and Romeo
[This dialogue takes place after Romeo Cacciamani's eighty-nine-year-old mother vandalized Julie Roseman's rose bushes, in an attempt to keep the two sixty-year-old love birds apart. Julie, with help from her daughter Sandy, tries to save her rose bushes.]
Julie: “That old Cacciamani bitch salted my roses!”
Sandy: “She salted the roses? That’s what Sherman did after he burned down the South. That’s like the lowest thing one human being can do to another.”
Julie: “Sherman salted the roses?”
Sandy: “He didn’t just salt the roses. He salted everything. He wanted to ruin all the farmland so the people who came back after the fire wouldn’t be able to feed themselves.”
Julie: “Yeah, well, I think she was operating under a similar impulse. Put all the dirt here. It all has to come up. We might have a chance, but it’s going to be tough. She took the time to water it in.”
Sandy: “She watered the salt? Only a total sociopath would stop to water the salt.”
