Laura: (about Mary) I'm feeling the jealousies again.
Charles: Now, what for?
Laura: I wrecked the dinner, and I wrecked the cake. I just can't do anything right!
Charles: Half-Pint, now you listen to me. You did the cooking this week, the chores, and everything. You took care of your sister. Why, any man would be proud to have you for a wife.
Laura: They would?
Charles: Sure they would.
Laura: What about the cooking?
Charles: Don't you worry, your mom burned a few cakes in her day. And even with all that, I bet you I gained five pounds this week.
Laura: You did?
Charles: I know I did.
