  • In this youthful look at the hypocrisy of adult life, an Irish nurse is not permitted to have men visitors: but her mistress is entitled to her own sexual sidelines.
  • The preacher interprets the Bible in a way that the rich are not scandalized or demoralized but actually pacified.
  • A club member blackballs his best friend, a Jew, because he wants to save him from being hurt.
  • Mature people are winos, ticket fixers with the police, order troops to fire into crowds, and are two faced: one mother calls her son at college to find out where he keeps his marijuana, and another asks her daughter at her coming out party if she has her diaphragm.
  • Not all of youth is so innocent.
  • There are the school chums who pray to God with thoughts of malice and concupiscence.
