"I'll hear enough of his 
 speeches after we're married!"

10
"Why, Sis! - anyone would 
 think you didn't love Harry!"

11
"Don't be old-fashioned -
     he has money."

12
"I'd like Harry - - if he
   didn't have a cent!"

Grandma's spectacles.

	... HARRY LANGDON

16
"- What this country needs 
 is more Matrimony and less 
         Alimony!"

17
"'Woman needs no eulogy -
 she speaks for herself'!"

18
"Women are the salt of the
 Earth - look at Lot's wife!"

19
"Just think! - one half of my 
   ancestors were women!"

20
Amos McCarthy, Harry's
  uncle, was a woman-hater
because all his wedding bells
had been false alarms.

	... Vernon Dent

21
"- if I ever hear of my nephew
 Harry even thinking about 
    a girl, I'll - - !"

22
"Now you've got this 
 education - what are
 you goin' to do with it?"

23
"Well, first of all, I'm going 
       to get married!"

24
"- - forget it - - any girl
  who marries you is just 
     after your money!"

25
"Uncle, you'd take that 
  back if you knew my 
     sweetheart!"

26
"Is that so? - - Three of
 'em have married me - -
 for a fireman's salary!"

27
"Well, I'll think it over!"

28
"I bought 'em for you!"

29
"- and no matter what 
 Harry has told you - he 
  hasn't got a cent!"

30
"Thank you so much!"

31
Hector Benedict, an old
  pal - - who hadn't
seen Harry since his voice
changed.

	... Bud Jamieson

32
"I'll bet your ring stuck to 
    that girl's shoe."

33
Shoplifters at work.

34
"Wait here till I phone 
        my wife!"

35
"I'll soon be pushing a baby 
   buggy around myself."

36*
Marriage is like life in this -
that it is  a field of battle,
and not a bed of roses.

	. . . Robert Louis Stevenson

37
"Harry, meet my darling 
     little wifie!"

38
"Seems to be a lot of
 fighting around here!"

39
"No more than's necessary!"

40
"I'm going out where I can 
     eat in peace!"

41
"You'll do nothing of the 
   kind, so help me!"

42
"You, too!"

45
"Didn't he pick on 
    me first?"

43
"Didn't she slam me when 
  you weren't looking?"

44
"She's right!"

45
"He's right!"

46*
Harry finds that he has 
overstayed his welcome.

47
"I hope she gets him!"

48
"- - and I thought College
 would make a man out of you!"

49
"Don't move till I get you 
     some trousers!"

49
"FIRE, FIRE!"

50
"Why don't you look where 
     you're going?"

51
"That's my uncle!"

52
"Sweetheart! - Wait! -
   I'll save you!"

53
"You great big, wonderful 
          boy!"

54
"Hold on tight, Honey!"

55
After that, Mary thought it 
  would be a good idea to 
stage a little rescue for 
         herself.

56
"- - our house is 
    on fire!"

57
"I'll tell the boys about it 
    when they come in!"

58
"Nobody's here but me,
 Pat and Joe, and two
  of us are horses!"

59
"Hurry! - - you can put 
 this fire out alone!"
