Sibley Sweetland: ...and don't forget to air your Master's pants, 'Minta.
Samuel Sweetland: And if anybody knows a woman with a gentler heart and a straighter back and a nobler character, I'd like to see her.
Samuel Sweetland: ...I am a man that a little child can lead but a regiment of soldiers couldn't drive.
Churdles Ash: his Handyman: They say that the next best thing to no wife be a good one.
Thirza Tapper: You are the first man who has accepted my sex challenge!
Churdles Ash: his Handyman: To see an old man in love be worse than seeing him with the whooping cough.
Samuel Sweetland: A female or two be floatin' around in my mind like the smell of a Sunday dinner.
