Gus: “Give me a word, any word, and I show you that the root of that word is Greek.“
Gus: “You know, the root of the word Miller is a Greek word. Miller come from the Greek word “milo,” which is mean “apple,” so there you go. As many of you know, our name, Portokalos, is come from the Greek word “portokali,” which mean “orange.” So, okay? Here tonight, we have, ah, apple and orange. We all different, but in the end, we all fruit.”
Kostas “Gus” Portokalos married Maria and moved to Eerie a few years ago. They have a Greek restaurant on Southgate and also a few other small business ran by members of their family. They have two daughters, Toula and Athena, an Aunt Voula, cousin Nick, cousin Nikky, cousin Angelo, and other family members. They are a classic middle class Greek American family living in a big house at St. Andrews.
Aunt Voula : “Okay. All my life, I had a lump at the back of my neck, right here. Always, a lump. Then I started menopause and the lump got bigger from the “hormonees.” It started to grow. So I go to the doctor, and he did the bio… the b… the… the bios… the… b… the “bobopsy.” Inside the lump he found teeth and a spinal cord. Yes. Inside the lump was my twin.”
