John: …The judgement of God is real, and our age of course never thinks about death. If you want to bring a dinner conversation to a crashing, grinding halt, just whisper to your hostess, have you given any thought to your death lately? See how that goes down.

Kel: It’s all in hospitals, it’s all medicalized.
John: And they’re removed away, you’re in the way as it were.
John: And our age pretends it’s never going to happen. Which is the great fad of everybody trying to look younger.
