In 'The Kiss Hello' (Season 6, Episode 17), Kramer institutes a policy where the apartment building neighbors start saying hi to one another. Which Jerry hates. Mary, a particularly friendly neighbor, kisses Jerry hello each time.
Jerry decides he will withdraw from this social contract, upsetting the building. When Jerry sees that his ways have undone him (they all shun him, the building super doesn't fix Jerry's issues, etc.), he tries to come back to the greeting ritual, but they still shun him.
In the final attempt, he is seen coming to Mary, the kisser, and saying, "Mary, sweet Mary, give us a kiss!"
(here is a clip of the episode but I could not find this scene with the line)
My question is, What is the reference, if any, of the way he phrases the request? It seems like it would be It's a Wonderful Life but I couldn't find a hit there.
