Splitting from December December Romance, which is when two senior characters meet and fall in love.
- Oh, they say that I'm feeble with age, Maggie,
My steps are much slower than then.
My face is a well written page, Maggie,

As dated as songs that we've sung,
But to me, you're as fair as you were, Maggie,
When you and I were young.

- The Pattersons in the epilogue to For Better or for Worse
