    having a Kodak moment

    CAROLYN :

    You cannot count on anyone except yourself. It's sad, but true, and the sooner you learn it, the better.

    JANE :

    Look, Mom, I really don't feel like having a Kodak moment here, okay?

    What does this phrase mean? Thanks!

    "Kodak moment" comes from a television commercial. It refers to sweet moments of family togetherness. In this case, the daughter is being sarcastic. She is annoyed that her mother is giving her a lecture.
