Quotes from

Gudger Larkin: Hey Coach! Shockley Just cleared 6' 11. And they're trying for 7 feet!
Steve Walker: Our Shockley?

[laughs maniacally]
Mrs. Stocroft: " - some spark of human goodness!"
Mrs. Stocroft: [in her calm, normal voice again] Well, good night, Mr. Walker. Sleep well! The dining room will be open for breakfast at 7:30 AM. Please be prompt.
