Here’s a guy that’s wholesome and fresh. To us, he looks like a freak. Do you know what he told me tonight? He said when he gets married, he wants to carry his bride over the threshold in his arms. I tried to laugh, but I couldn’t. It stuck in my throat. He’s got goodness, Mabel. Do you know what that is? No, of course you don’t. We’ve forgotten. We’re too busy being smart alecks. Too busy in a crazy competition for nothing.

Mr. Deeds Goes to Town (1936)
