- Rest? I can't rest at those prices.

- How do you do, Mrs. Prentiss?

- Oh, how do you do, young man?

- Nicely, thank you.

- And how are you, Miss Prentiss?

- So happy I can hardly stand it.


I know you.

You're the hostess, aren't you?

- I remember you from last summer.

- Do you?

I certainly do.


The bell ending the first round.

I'll see you later.

We'll fight this out to a finish.

Humbolt, where are you?

You see, Mother...

last season that little lady told me

she couldn't swim...

- and I was just going to teach her when...

- When I took you home.

- I always know what I'm doing.

- Yes, Mother.

Yes, those two go in that room,

and those three in that room, yes...

and yes, those go in that room.

How many gallons of gas

did we use coming up, Humbolt?

- Twenty.

- Twenty!

- Is there anything else?

- Oh, yes, yes. If you'll just take this...

and have it changed,

and divide it amongst you.

I've got to hand it to you, Mother.

It takes a lot of nerve

to give four boys a quarter...

for carrying up 16 pieces of baggage.

How many times have I told you?

Just because I happen to be rich, I have

no intention of being imposed upon.

A dollar wouldn't have been any too much.

What? 75 cents more?

Have you any idea

of what the interest on 75 cents is...

- at 3.5%? Have you?

- No, Mother, I haven't.

Well, you just take this pad and pencil

and sit right down there and figure it out.

You know that I'm not good at fractions.

No, but I notice you're very good

at figures.

Yes, you might say that I'm a specialist.

Humbolt, how can you joke

about a thing like that?

- I joke about it because I enjoy it.

- Well, I don't enjoy it!

When I think of the grief you've caused me

with your three marriages...

- Four, Mother, four.
