Quotes:
From "Father Knows Best: The Art of Romance (#3.34)" (1957)
James 'Jim' Anderson: [arguing] ... this applies to all women. You insist on taking all the credit. When a man, of his own volition and free choice, selects a girl he likes - the girl immediately claims she hooked him. Chances are she had nothing to do with it.
Betty 'Princess' Anderson: Oh, Father! You are naive.
Margaret Anderson: You know the old saying, dear. 'A girl let's a boy chase her, till she catches him.'
James 'Jim' Anderson: [exasperated] Oh, Margaret.
Margaret Anderson: Well, that's how I caught you.
