The Fifth Commandment

Jimmy and Joe walk into the second table of the law and talk about the fifth commandment. Why is the command to “honor your father and mother” the first to be listed in the second table? Does this command only impact family relationships? What does honoring mom and dad look like today, and what is the danger is breaking this commandment?
