Big Hearted Herbert (1934)
Herbert Kalness: [Resisting the suggestion that his son go to college instead of going to work at Kalness' factory] I never saw a college man yet who was worth his salt - freshman year or any other year!
Goodrich Sr.: Aren't you being a bit severe on colleges, Mr. Kalness?
Herbert Kalness: "Colleges"? We don't have 'em any more. Big athletic institutions. Football teams. Baseball teams. Crews, swimmers, hockey players. Tiddlywinks teams for all I know. Careening around the country to get their pictures in the paper!
Herbert Kalness: A parasite. One of the leeches who fatten on the backbone of the country.
Elizabeth: How do you fatten on a backbone, Herbert?
Herbert Kalness: If that sappy lawyer was worth the retaining fee I paid him, he'd have told that income tax man today where to head in. As it is, I have to pay the government every cent I owe them.
Herbert Kalness: A fine example of college straining. Studied four years to become a moron.
Elizabeth: You don't have to study for that. You never went to college.
