Philip (his secret to a happy marriage): Marry a good woman. I got a wonderful girl. Not only was she beautiful and all that, but she's about as good a wife as you could imagine. We've had our arguments, but not much anymore; we've mellowed. We've pulled it off. You know, she used to keep a journal of how much she'd spend. We barely had the money to pay the rent, and if she spent 15 cents for something she would write it down. She's also a great mother. Her children will go to the wall for her.
