It’s a desperate life

This is the bit where George Bailey has come to his enemy, the evil banker Potter, to beg for a loan – and when Potter finds that George has a $500 life-insurance policy he tells him: “Why, you’re worth more dead than alive!” (Although I very much doubt that the insurance company would’ve paid out if Clarence the angel hadn’t intervened in George’s subsequent suicide attempt.)
