2nd F.F.F. to 1st: Soccer? Who's he? he doesn't play for 'Varsity, does he?

At the Town Hall, Capping Day:

Small boy to his mother: Mum, why doesn't Papa have a red shirt like that man up on the stage?

Mother: Ssh! dearie, don't talk like that! People will think your Pa is a

Socialist too.

On the night of the Conversazione:

His Excellency V-sc-nt J-ll-coe of Sc-pa O.M. etc. (entering his car near the Gym); So that's where they have those wretched debates, is it?

Her Excellency etc. (sweeping out of biology lab.); Oh, what a disgusting place!
