wisdom of plog the blacksmith

one of my favorite moments (and there are many) in the seventh seal is at the end, when the group finally meets death.  plog the blacksmith humbly introduces himself and then encourages his wife to politely curtsy.  throughout much of the movie we have seen the couple fighting, slinging insults and threats at each other in passion and anger.  yet here, when faced with death, he describes them as a simple couple who love each other, euphemistically acknowledging that they have had their disputes and disagreements, but no more than any other couple.

i like that. 
sometimes we get in fights with those we love, but soon we calm down and remember that, when it comes down to it, we're still (and perhaps moreso) deeply grateful for those people in our life.
