Doctor In The House (1946)

Feeling demurely pleased with myself, I went down to the King George to tell someone about this swift conquest. I found Tony Benskin and Grimsdyke sitting at the bar, energetically talking about racing with the Padre.
`I've just dated up that little pro on the ward,' I told them nonchalantly. 'I'm taking her out tonight.'
Benskin was horrified. He had an obsession that he might one day be trapped into matrimony by a nurse and walked round the hospital as warily as a winning punter passing the men with the three-card trick.
`It's the thin end of the wedge, my boy!' he exclaimed. 'You watch your step, or you'll end up as aisle-fodder before you know where you are. They're vixens, the lot of them.'
`And good luck to them,' Grimsdyke added emphatically. `After all, that's what they come to the hospital for-to find a husband. They wouldn't admit it, but it's buried in the subconscious of all of them somewhere.'
`I thought nursing was supposed to be a vocation and a calling,' I said defensively.
`No more than our own job, my dear old boy. Why have we all taken up medicine? I've got a good reason, that I'm paid to do it. You've got a doctor as a father and a leaning towards medicine in your case is simply a hereditary defect. Tony here took it up because he couldn't think of anything better that would allow him to play rugger three times a week. How many of our colleagues entered the noble profession through motives of humanity?' Grimsdyke screwed his monocle hard in his eye. `Damn few, I bet. Humanitarian feelings draw more young fellows annually into the London Fire Brigade. It's the same with the girls-nursing offers one of the few remaining respectable excuses to leave home. Let them marry the chaps, I say. They're strong, healthy girls
