Do you yearn for her? – From the Abbott and Costello radio show, “Spanish Acting School” Bud tries to teach Lou the meaning of the word ‘yearn’ (to long for, to desire …)
Bud Abbott: Do you yearn for Mabel?
Lou Costello: No, I yearn for myself and my father.
Bud Abbott: You yearn for yourself and your father?
Lou Costello: Yeah, I yearn 20 bucks a week, and he takes half of it!
