Odell Gardener: I have an idea but I need to work it out.

Myra Gardener: Yeah, well don't forget about my cousin, Hatty Heimenheimer. It took her so long to "work out an idea," they finally had to stash her away in the booby hatch!

Myra Gardener: Excessively.

Rex Brewster: Is coarseness a substitute for wit, I ask myself?
