    • Archie: Do you know, Edith, that there a lot of husbands out there who hit their wives whether they deserve it or not?
      Edith: Archie, maybe I could forgive you if you hit me. But I don't think I could ever forgive you for making me hit you.
      Archie: What does THAT mean?
      Edith: It means you lied to me, Archie.
      Archie: Hey! Listen now, Edith. (points to his cheek) I still got no feeling here.

      Archie: Edith, let me tell you something about beer. You can never buy it. You can only rent it!
      (Archie laughs but Edith is not too happy.)
      Archie: Hey, come on now! What's the matter? Did I just hear the phone ring?
      Edith: (tersely) Yes.
      Archie: Who was it for?
      Edith: It was for you.
      Archie: Well, don't just stand there, Edith. What was it?
