      • Ralph: Let me tell you something. I had some chances, too, you know, before I married you.
        Alice: Ha ha.
        Ralph: Don't laugh, Alice. There were plenty of girls crazy about me, and you know it. Every time I went down to the beach, they used to crowd around me.
        Alice: Sure. Sure, they crowded around you. That didn't mean they were crazy about you. They just wanted to sit in the shade.

      • Ralph- "Dear Mom. I just thought I'd write and tell you this. A Mother-in-Law is the most criticised, the most misunderstood and the most defenseless of all women. the average woman must be clever enough to know when to speak, but a Mother-in-Law must know when to keep silent. She must be very wise. Wise enough sometimes to withold advice, although she knows the answer to the problem. A Mother-In-Law must sit on the fence, between her own child and the child by marriage, and somehow she must keep a balance, she must lean backwards until her spine aches, or else she is accused of being partial, and she isn't permited the luxury of hurt feelings or tears. If a person could put themselves in their Mother-In-Law's place, weigh her in the balance, and be completely fair, they'd nominate her for the presidency of the United States, and She'd be the first woman to make it. (Ralph's letter to her Mother in Law, just after getting married to Alice)

      • Alice: What am I supposed to say when my mother comes here and you're not here?

        Ralph: What do I care what you say? Tell her I ran off and joined the circus.

        Alice: What as, an elephant?

        Ralph: Oh, you're a riot, Alice. You are a regular riot! Ha ha ha! Oh, you must have everybody in the building laughing. You certainly are funny, Alice. You ought to be in the circus. You ought to be in the circus. You'd be funnier than that guy they got there, Emmett Kelly the clown. Much funnier than him. As a matter of fact, you look a little like him. Except for one thing: the big red nose. (shows her his fist) And you might get that before this is over.
