“If I were reborn, I would do it all again, be a tango dancer above all,”
Maria says while reflecting on her past. Seeing Maria glowing as she recalls her memories of tangoing under the moon and stars is charming. She recounts the glory of her youth, and tells many a story about how she spent her childhood longing for the thrills of the dance floor.
Frank puts on the charm and asks her if she wants to learn the tango right there in the dining room. They don’t have their tango shoes, and she’s not wearing her tango dress, but that won’t stop them. Donna is reluctant at first, afraid she might make a mistake. Frank gives her a wink and tells her,
“No mistakes in the tango, Donna. Not like life. It’s simple, that’s what makes the tango so great. If you make a mistake, get all tangled up, just tango on.”
