"Don't you 'Oh Mr. Jankowski' me, young lady. This is nursery food, and last I lookedI wasn't five years old. I'm ninety. Or ninety-three."(67) THis quote is significant because it is reffering to the fact of how all he wants is a descent meal. He hates the food there and he constantly complains. I find it funny the way he says it to the nurse. I thought it was a funny quote and i thought that it showed the frustration and the personality of Jacob Jankowski.
