Quotes

Sir John Glutton: For the past nine years, my Godmother, to whom I have written with the most practilious regularity, had believed me to be married. Not only married, but with an heir. If she finds I am a bachelor, she won't leave me a farthing.
Gooch: Then you must marry before her visit
Sir John Glutton: She's coming tomorrow night. Where shall I find a wife before then? They don't grow on trees!
