-->People [[UsefulNotes/NewYork here]] are funny. They work so hard at living - they forget how to live. Last night, after I left you, I was walking along and looking at the tall buildings and I got to thinking about what Thoreau said. They created a lot of grand palaces here - but they forgot to create the noblemen to put in them.

* GoodIsNotDumb: Mr. Deeds is a kind and sympathetic man. But many people in the movie mistake him for being a pushover, when he is clearly an intelligent man.

* HiddenDepths: Babe (and the audience) slowly begin to realise Deeds is not simply a naive hayseed. He quickly cottons to on to when he is being mocked by his fellow poets and shows himself to be a deep and rather eloquent thinker.
