[LINDA:] He’s too rough with the girls, Willy. All the mothers are afraid of him!

[WILLY:] I got an awful scare. Nearly hit a kid in Yonkers. God! Why didn’t I go to Alaska with my brother Ben that time! Ben! That man was a genius, that man was success incarnate! What a mistake! He begged me to go!
