    She is your wife, isn't she?

  • Dr. Benjamin Franklin  

    Of course she is, look at the way they fit.

  • John Dickinson  

    Mr. Jefferson, Mr. Lee, Mr. Hopkins, Dr. Franklin, why have you joined this... incendiary little man, this BOSTON radical? This demagogue, this MADMAN?

  • John Adams  

    Are you calling me a madman, you, you... you FRIBBLE!

  • Dr. Benjamin Franklin  

    Easy John.

  • John Adams  

    You cool, considerate men. You hang to the rear on every issue so that if we should go under, you'll still remain afloat!

  • John Dickinson

  • John Dickinson  

    When did you first notice they were missing, sir?
