"One night a guy tried to punch Jimmy because his girl had dumped him for Jim. The guy was squaring up to him, and Jimmy just stood there, all innocent, saying, "Look, I didn’t mean to steal your girl. Look, here she is. If she wants to go out with you, that’s fine. But if she decides she wants to stay with me, what can I do about it?" And this guy tried to land a right punch, but Jimmy just side-stepped to the left, kept his right foot where it was and tripped the guy up. Then Jimmy helped him up with, "Golly, are you all right? Didn’t hurt yourself, did ya?" And he seemed like he hadn’t done a thing, and everyone felt it was the other guy who deserved what he got. And Jimmy got the girl. It was an art the way Jimmy got his girls."—Jose Ferrer, a schoolfriend of Jimmy Stewart, on how he got the girls
