    Petey’s face (and eyebrows!) in the third panel is priceless.
    And don’t worry Petey….Big Shirley won’t be at your recital.

    There was a scene in “All In the Family” that used the same line, and made the same mistake. Mike was being oh-so-erudite in one episode, and corrected Gloria when she quoted the same misinterpretation.

    Yes soothe the savage breast, but for some it is a beast. That lovely, lovely breast. Or in this case the entire chest where the heart is. That emotional organ.

    The REAL quote is:

    “Music hath charms to soothe the savage breast, to soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak.”

    — William Congreve (1670–1729), The Mourning Bride. Act i. Sc. 1., 1697

    (“Musick has Charms to sooth a savage Breast, To soften Rocks, or bend a knotted Oak. I’ve read, that things inanimate have mov’d, And, as with living Souls, have been form’d by Magick Numbers and persuasive Sound.”)
