Quote from Sophia in Older and Wiser

Dorothy: Ma, I think this will be good for you. Mr. Porter seems like a nice man. I'm sure you'll have a lot of fun there.
Sophia: And don't forget the money. I haven't had a paycheck since 1942, and then I blew it all on war bonds.
Dorothy: Well, at least you got it back.
Sophia: No, Italian war bonds. I fell for their slick advertising campaign. "Buy Italian war bonds - the quickest, surest, fascist way to double your money."
