My wife and I have never exchanged a cross word.

I never would care to be rich, just comfortably fixed.
I'd just like to have been in his place. I'd have showed them.
If I'd catch a kid of mine at anything like that I'd blister him.
If you don't think it's a good thing for you I don't want you to do it.
If I had that woman for a little while I'd teach her a few things.
If I had just a little money I know here I could go out and make a pile.
I don't care anything for the money. It was the principle of the thing.
I've never seen such weather before.(
