Nels: (about the talking machine) That's amazing...but who cares?
Mr. Godfrey: Who cares?!
Nels: I mean, what is it for?
Mr. Godfrey: Well, you heard it. It plays music!
Nels: Well, we've got a piano.
Mr. Godfrey: Yeah, but you can put your own voice on there.
Nels: (pauses) What for?
Mr. Godfrey: So you can hear your own voice talking back to you.
Harriet: I am quite capable of hearing my own voice, Mr. Godfrey. I can hear quite clearly right now, and it tells me no. We don't want to buy your machine.
Mr. Godfrey: Is that your final word?
Nels: Well, it's my wife's, so that makes it the final word.
