"Oh, George," said the wife, "it can 't hurt. "All right - all right, if they 'll just shut up. One minute, mind you, and then off forever." earlier in the story we see this when the parents take away the nursery. the kids then, threw a fit and cried until they convince their parents into letting them use the nursery.
