Having spent half her life in the Philippines, my wife is only now catching up on many things native-born Americans know implicitly if they weren't educated in public schools.
So the other night, we were watching a movie we'd seen before, Liberty Heights, because it it had, as the announcer used to say long ago, it brought "you a message of interest and importance." And one of the message my wife got was…
She: So the Jews stick together like the Chinese do?
Me: Absolutely. But then they have to…
She: Filipinos are the worst.
Me: Oh no, white people are the worst
Me: They not only don't stick together, they actually help the other colors beat them.
She: Oh yeah.
By the way, the best line in the movie is one of the all-time best, I think… Bebe Neuwirth is on the phone with her husband, Joe Mantegna, and she's frantic because her Jewish son is going to a party dressed as Hitler.
Joe as Nate Kurtzman: "Put the Fuhrer on the ohone!"
