Terence Donahue: All right, the sixth grade, but there's nothing wrong with your arithmetic. You can whistle 'Mandy', do an 'Off to Buffalo', and count the house at the same time, and tell me within five cents how much is out there.
Molly Donahue: That's not arithmetic.
Terence Donahue: You're darn right that's not... that's higher mathematics.

Terence Donahue: Who do you think YOU are... Whispering Jack Smith?
