HC:  Dinner will be ready when you are.
MP:  Rodney?
RH:  Sir.
MP:  Are you hungry?
RH:  Not very sir.
MP:  Good.  Then you can do me a favor.  We'll wake up that sluggish 
     appetite of yours.  The movers will be here tomorrow.  I want to set 
     aside a few pieces.  Get down there.  I'll tell you what I want. 
RH:  What is it you want sir.
MP:  The chinese fret.
RH:  The chinese fret.
MP:  Not there, over there.  That's it.  Bring it to the foot of the 
     stairs.  Now Great-great-uncle Josiah's bust.  Not that one.  That 
     bust.  The one with the crafty eyes.  Ah, that's him.  This will take 
     forever.  Come up here.  Help me doen.  I'll starve to death waiting 
     for you to find anything.

HC:  Mr. Peyton, what are you doing?  If you fall ...
MP:  It will be because you made me fall with your hysterical shrieking.
     Close the door.
MP:  Does helping an old man bother you, Rodney?
RH:  No sir.
MP:  Of course not.  Too young.  At your age, you think you're immortal.
RH:  Tell me something, grandfather.  Why did you invite me tonight and 
     not Norman?
MP:  Hurt the boy's feelings?  What is it?
     Nor Norman.  That chair, move it.  What is it?
     But was it English or American made?

convicted, it won't matter how

Let's rest awhile before we climb.  Well you said you had questions.
