Artemus: This stuff is giving you that much of a run for your money, huh?
Artemus: You wouldn't be kidding us, would you, Doc?
Doc Keyno: Why, Mr. Gordon, would I kid the two gentlemen who sent me up?
Artemus: Listen, next time you invite me to lunch, remind me to eat first, will you?

James: What does your husband think about all this?
Mrs. Lennox: Abner suffers from a constitutional ailment—he's a ridiculous fool.
