One of my main memories of the Passover service is my father's always saying, "This is strong stuff!" when bringing out the horseradish. Also, I got a kick out of a quotation from, I believe, a psalm, that is repeated during the Passover service that says something like, and I kid you not, "thy breasts are fashioned and thou now have hair, whereas thou were once naked and bare." I'm sure it was intended as a metaphor for something, but lots of pre-pubescent and adolescent boys got a kick out of that.
