: It just so happened that General... uh... Gates stopped right there at that very house to water his horses. Bill Cole
: I don't care if General Grant dropped in for a scotch and soda. You're still getting rooked. Jim Blandings
: That was a different war!
: The house and the lilac bush at the corner are just the same age, Bill. If a lilac bush can live and be so old, so can a house. It just needs someone to love it, that's all. Bill Cole

: That's fine. For the rest of my life, I'll have to get up at 5 in the morning to catch the 6:15 train to get to my office at 8. It doesn't even open until 9, and I never get there until 10! Muriel Blandings

: Mr. William Cole, please. Hello, Bill. They can't get away with this! I know my rights as a citizen. Why, this notice from the owner of this building. He wants our apartment.

Now you listen to me: I have no intention of moving in thirty days. This is not legal! I'm going to fight this thing and I don't care if it takes every penny I've got! Yeah. Yeah. Yeah! Muriel Blandings
: Well? Jim Blandings
: We're moving in thirty days. Bill Cole
] So came thirty days, and they moved. That is, we moved.
