The Rules of Chivalry

In the matter of her loved one's acts of chivalry towards damsels in distress, a fiancee holds certain definite views. If the damsels he assists are plain, he is a good chap and deserves credit. If they are pretty, he is a low hound who jolly well gets his ring and letters back by the first post.

(from Young Men In Spats, by Sir Pelham Wodehouse)
