"Why do you keep

raising me

when

you know I'm bluffing?"

"Come on,

House and Woman

"If you

can keep

a secret,

I'll tell you

how my husband died. "

"Look out, Harry!"

"Mamma always gets

sore and spoils the game

for everybody. "

"Mine!"

"You said a moment ago

that everybody you look at

seems to be a rabbit.

Now just what do you mean

by that, Mrs. Sprague?"

"Have you seen my pistol,

Honey-bun?"
