Maria has been more than patient (probably due to the Catholic upbringing that does its best to inculcate women with mashochism.)

I still have never been able to get all the way through any of his films except for "Pumping Iron" (which was very instructional about the young Arnold's ambitions. It's worth another look.)

Love it Ken! How about the North Tipperary greeting, "hello there, are ya not gone home yet?"
"ya won't have a cup of tea will ya?"
