Thelma Lou was referring to the romance story with the Pilgrims.
The Pilgrims grimly battle against disease and Indians, but are also
obsessed with an eccentric love triangle, creating a curious mix of drama
and comedy. Two bumbling, feuding roommates, Miles Standish and John Alden,
vie for the affections of the beautiful Priscilla Mullins, who slyly tweaks
the noses of her undiplomatic suitors. The independent-minded woman utters
one of the most famous retorts ever: "Why don't you speak for yourself,
John?" The saga has a surprise ending, one full of optimism for the
American future.
