Mother Winfield: George, the children have been spoiling me. Marjorie has been fussing with my hair all afternoon, keeping me out of the kitchen, and Wesley insisted on doing the marketing and polishing the silver. I've been treated as though I were a queen.

Father Winfield: You are a queen! And that's straight from the king.

Stella: Henry the Eighth!

Marjorie Winfield: Bill, it's so difficult for me to ask you to understand, but... Why I can't possibly think of marrying you right now. And I can't tell you why.

Bill Sherman: What do you mean you can't tell me? Why, I'm almost your husband! At least, I thought I was.

Marjorie Winfield: You will be. Someday. But for now Bill, couldn't you please be sweet and understanding?

Bill Sherman: But I don't want to be sweet and understanding! I want to be a husband!

Marjorie Winfield: Bill...

Bill Sherman: It never entered my mind, Marjorie, that you ever had any doubt about your feelings towards me. But now everything's quite obvious. You're not even sure I'm the man you want to marry!
