How Green Was My Valley (1941)
Morton Lowry: Mr. Jonas
Dai Bando : A man is never too old to learn, is it, Mr. Jonas?
Mr. Jonas : [uncertainly] No.
Dai Bando : I was in school myself once, but no great one for knowledge.
Mr. Jonas : [angrily, shaking his cane] Look here, what do you want?
Dai Bando : Knowledge.
[taking Mr. Jonas' cane]
Dai Bando : How would you go about taking the measurement of a stick, Mr. Jonas?
Mr. Jonas : By its' length, of course.
Dai Bando : And how would you measure a man who would use a stick on a boy one-third his size?
[throws Mr. Jonas' cane aside]
Cyfartha : Tell us!
Dai Bando : Now, you are good in the use of a stick, but boxing is my subject... according to the rules laid down by the good Marquis of Queensbury.
Cyfartha : [saluting] God rest his soul!
Dai Bando : And happy I am to pass on my knowledge to you!
[backhands Mr. Jonas, sending him reeling]
