Tom Lee: When I was a kid here in this school, I've had my problems too. I used to sit in my room and listen to phonograph records hour after hour. I had a place where I used to go and cry my eyes out.

Laura Reynolds: Oh, Bill.

Tom Lee: But I've got over it, Laura. I learned how to take it. Now when the headmaster's wife gave you that silver teapot, she told you what she tells all of the other master's wives that you've got to be an interested bystander.

Laura Reynolds: Yes, yes, I know.

Tom Lee: Just as she says, Laura. All you're supposed to do is once in a while give the boys a little tea...

Laura Reynolds:

  • tea and sympathy.


Tom Lee: [laughs] You remember that?

Laura Reynolds: I remember.
