Clark: "What's the matter?"
Ellen: "Was that really necessary?"
Clark: "We needed a tree."
Ellen: "May I remind you that..."
Clark: "That this was all my idea? No, no, no. I'm well aware of that honey."
Ellen: "Well' could you just keep it in mind the next time you go berzerk?"
Clark: "I didn't go berzerk. I simply solved a problem. We needed a coffin... I mead a tree. There are no lots open on Christmas eve. Lewis burned down my tree. So, I replaced it as best I could. Viola!"
Ellen: "Are you okay?"
Clark: "I'm fine honey."
