Nellie: I don't like to do dishes, and you know it!
Nels: Well, I don't care what you don't like.
Nellie: Well, that's obvious.
Nels: What do you mean by that?
Nellie: This hotel, this restaurant. I never asked for it in the first place.
Nels: Well, I didn't give it to you! It was your mother's idea.
Nellie: You shouldn't have let her.
Nels: How was I supposed to stop her?
Nellie: By being a man.
Nels: By being a......?!?!? Now, look here, young lady. If you behaved like a woman, you wouldn't need this hotel and restaurant to find yourself a man!
Nels: That's why your mother gave you this restaurant in the first place, so somebody would marry you!
