Remember the scene in, “The Quiet Man.”  Sean Thornton won’t fight Mary Katherine’s brother for her rightful dowry.  He thinks his wife’s fury and demands that he does so are born from mercenary greed.  ; But finally, he demands her money and back, and when it’s thrown to the ground to him, he picks it up, strides to the furnace to throw it away, but Mary Katherine arrives at the same time and flings open the door to the oven for him.  It wasn’t about greed at all.

.I suppose I’m still waiting for you to throw that money in the fire as well.  Lord knows, I’ve held the oven door open for you for a long time now.
