Arnold isn’t real fond of Marjorie’s regulations being posted all over the house.
Marj – I think I can call her that – is a blast at parties.
Nuts, I love to read…aloud…what interests me in the paper. I simply don’t understand why the other people in this house don’t share my enthusiasm.
Texans who are still out in the cold might agree with her.
Arnold notes that Marjorie is using the Royal “we”…!
Now I want to see the signs in the other rooms of their house…
He’s going to get a piece of paper for the bottom of that sign.
That’s what you get when you marry a civil servant.
How about a sign that says, “We don’t read while people are talking.”
Arnold does not talk. He reads the comics and laughs a lot!
I wish I could get away with a sign like that, needs to include laughing though. There is nothing worse than being in the same room as someone laughing at what he/she is reading.
“Sign, sign, everywhere a sign. Blockin’ out the scenery, breakin’ my mind. Do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the sign?” — Five Man Electrical Band (1970)
What goes up must come down.
Can we move our lips?
I tried putting suggestive signs on the bedroom door, but Mrs. Baker declared them “obscene.” Now, I’m tied to the bed.
And later, she will complain about their lack of communication.
Arnold needs to talk when he reads. He sounds the words out that way.
