1948[edit]

Annie: But he hates you...don't you hate him?
Daddy Warbucks: Hate? Oh, no, Annie...it's not that I'm a Pollyanna, or so good I can't hate...But I guess I'm just too busy to have time for hate...Anyway, I've noticed that people who spend a lot of time hating seldom amount to much...I'm always aimed to amount to something...
March 20th, 1948
Daddy Warbucks: Money? It's the easiest thing in the world to get if you're sure that's what you really want...I'm sure! For only with money can we get the real things that count...So what's wrong with making money? Happy, prosperous people never start wars...but they win them...
March 21st, 1948
Punjab: But Sahib! Give Axel a trial! You can prove he is an evil man...
Daddy Warbucks: Oh, sure...set ourselves up as judges of what is sin and what is virtue...
Punjab: But what is right is right, Sahib...
Daddy Warbucks: That's the way Atilla the Hun figured...He was right...All his enemies wrong...So he murdered millions...In the name of justice, of course...
March 24th, 1948
Daddy Warbucks: Well Axel...do you still refuse to play ball with me, to help your people to the same living level that my people enjoy...
Axel: Bah! Who cares for the "great gray mass" of the stupid pee-pul?
Daddy Warbucks: Eh? But don't you preach the great equality?
Axel: Preach it? Of course! But live it? Do you think me a fool? If so, you are the great fool, Warbucks! Ha! You are the April Fool!
Daddy Warbucks: I am? Well, well, well....If I am, I'm doing OK....How are you doing, Axel?
April 1st, 1948
Annie: "Armistice Day"...Gee...The end of "The war to end all wars"...Way back in 1918...What a gag...But not th' kind o' gag yuh feel like laughin' about...I hear they used to celebrate "Armistice Day"...Big parades! Well, we had lots bigger parades later on...Millions and millions o' men...Marchin' to war...A bigger war...Maybe some day the world will have peace that'll last...Maybe some day people will quit tryin' to beat their ideas into other people's heads...Maybe...That'd be a nice switch...
November 11th, 1948 a switch for sure it would be. Well a better one would be to do the right thing and not be so concerned with others ways of living. Because annie you are a tough Brooklyn girl who can fight any boy on theses streets so theres a difference in fighting for what is right to you and fighting for foolish causes that are not realistically obtainable. While we need to all function as a whole as society due to the vast beliefs being so varied it is not my projection that anyone is forcing ideas on others the main problem area i indicate is that of lackin resources and the need for many to not have enough while others have an overflow and then those who make not much of a honest effort to even aquire. I love you daddy warbucks. And Punjab too.
