Movie Trope Thursday: Henpecked Husband

Dexter Grayson: Anne asked me, uh, to come and see you about the divorce.
Stew Smith: She did?
Dexter Grayson: She wants me to arrange the financial settlement.
Stew Smith: Listen, Grayson, I got 106 bucks and 75 cents in the bank. Now Anne can have any part of that she wants, but she’s got to hurry, because I’m spending it awful fast.

Stew Smith: Now wait a minute! Do I get from you that she wants to pay ME alimony?
~Platinum Blonde (1931)
