  • Mrs. Brown  

    What's the meaning of goodness if there isn't a little badness to overcome?

  • Velvet Brown  

    I want it all quickly 'cause I don't want God to stop and think and wonder if I'm getting more than my share.

  • Mrs. Brown  

    That'll be a dispute to the end of time, Mr. Brown: whether it's better to do the right thing for the wrong reason or the wrong thing for the right reason.

  • Mi Taylor

  • Mr. Hallam  

    So you're to win the gelding, are you Velvet?

  • Velvet  

    Oh, of course I'm to win.

  • Mr. Hallam  

    There are ways of arranging it, aren't there? And your father's a clever man...

  • Velvet  

    Oh, I didn't bother him, Mr. Hallam. I just arranged it with God.
