    • Lucy: Listen to this: (reads from book) A person who is kept from attaining his innermost desires may manifest his frustration in the following ways. One, he may assume the characteristics of the person he is kept from becoming. Now, you know Ricky has kept me from becoming a famous actress. Two, he may develop amnesia. Three, he may withdraw from reality and become childlike again.
      Ethel: Gee, what a keen bunch of complexes. Which one are you going to have?
      Lucy: Which one? I'm gonna have all three of them.
