Gracie Allen: Ronnie, I don't think you can come right out and ask your father for a motorcycle. Now, for instance, if I want a new dress, I ask him for something very expensive like a mink coat, and then he settles for the dress!

George Burns: [to audience] Blanche just told me that she slugged a masher in a book shop. And Harry Morton is inviting this important executive to dinner tonight to make a good impression on him. Wouldn't it be funny if they turned out to be the same man? It better be funny or I'll certainly speak to my writers!

George Burns: [Gracie blathers on about her Uncle Harvey] And now, Gracie, say goodnight.

Gracie Allen: You don't want to hear about the job he had helping that plumber? Well, the only reason he lost the job is because he did what the plumber told him to.

George Burns: That's why he LOST it?

Gracie Allen: Well, yes. You see, what happened was they were trying to hammer some pipe through a hole in the wall, so the plumber held it and he said to Uncle Harvey, "Now, when I nod my head, you hit it with that big hammer."

George Burns: So?

Gracie Allen: So the plumber did and Uncle Harvey did.

George Burns: And Uncle Harvey isn't working for the plumber anymore.

Gracie Allen: There is no plumber anymore!
