    Janie: Well, sure, the odds are against any two people meeting. After all, there's something like two billion people in the world. And if a girl meets any fella, it's an accident, isn't it?

    Harry: Yeah, well...

    Janie: Well, there's no reason why the accident can't be a rich fella instead of poor fella.
