  • Max Fischer: What was your major?
    Rosemary Cross: I didn't have a major, but my thesis was on Latin American economic policy.
    MF: Oh, that's interesting. Did you hear they're not going to teach Latin here anymore?
    RC: This was more like Central America.
    MF: Oh, Central America and whatnot. Hmm. But moving on: They're gonna cancel Latin. They've got to make room for Japanese.
    RC: That's a shame because all the romance languages are based on Latin.
    MF: Yeah, they are, aren't they?
    RC: Nihilo sanctum estne?
    MF: What's that? Oh, it's Latin, isn't it? What does that mean?
    RC: Is nothing sacred?
    MF: Sic transit gloria. Glory fades. I'm Max Fischer.
    RC: Hi.
    MF: Hi.
