Quotes

William 'Bill' Sherman: The University of Indiana. I'm a senior.

Marjorie 'Marjie' Winfield: Oh, it must be wonderful.

William 'Bill' Sherman: It's a farce. All the fellas' are interested in is playing football and baseball, and women. Women and more women. Can you think of a bigger waste of time?

Marjorie 'Marjie' Winfield: What's wrong with baseball?

William 'Bill' Sherman: Baseball! It's the national insanity. At a time like this when, when civilization is crumbling beneath our feet, our generation is playing baseball, and singing songs like...

Chorus: [sings in the background] We were sailing along / On Moonlight Bay

William 'Bill' Sherman: We were sailing along, on Moonlight Bay. Isn't that silly?

Marjorie 'Marjie' Winfield: I rather liked it.

William 'Bill' Sherman: Have you heard the rest of it?

[sings]

William 'Bill' Sherman: You have stolen her heart / Now, don't go away. As we sang love's old sweet song on Moonlight Bay.

[back to speaking]

William 'Bill' Sherman: That musta been written by a man with a glass of beer in one hand and a rhyming dictionary in the other.

Marjorie 'Marjie' Winfield: Oh, I think it's beautiful.

Marjorie 'Marjie' Winfield: What?

William 'Bill' Sherman: I don't believe in marriage.

Marjorie 'Marjie' Winfield: But I just asked you in for some buttermilk.

William 'Bill' Sherman: Well, I... I didn't want to drink it under false pretences.

Marjorie 'Marjie' Winfield: Well, my goodness. Maybe, I don't believe in marriage, either.
