[Scene: one-room school house in 1738, Gracie is playing her great-great-great grandmother who is struggling to complete school. It is graduation day and she has come up hoping that she would have earned her diploma. Edward Everett Horton plays the principal, later playing the administrator of the trust fund that supports the school in 1938.]
Principal: Tut tut tut, child. I told thee not to come up here. Again there is no sheepskin for thee.
Principal: Why, because this is the ninth year that thou hast failed in all thy studies.
