The question is can we get away with it?

You've got to get away with! You must Sandy!

1

Me? It's your idea, not mine

What difference does that make?

2

You get the ideas and I do all the work

Sandy!

3

Okay

What you don't already know about the great Sidney Kidd, you can certainly fill in from Mike's ravings tonight

4

I used to have that Dime lingo down pretty pat

It's a chance to write a beauty you know it is

5

Then I swap it with Kidd for Connor's piece on us- and where am I?

You'll have the satisfaction of knowing you saved the lot of us single handed

6

And what if he won't swap?

I'm not worried about that

7

I suppose there's a fair chance the post will go for it

Of course! You can't possibly lose. Quick- they'll be here! How long will it take you?

8

Holy cats! You get to bed.

Have you got a typewriter?

9

My old Corona upstairs

Make it smoke

10

You bet

Suds. I can't stand it. You won't fall asleep?

11

I've drunk nothing but black coffee since Connor began his lecture

"Sidney Kidd- his habits- his habitat and how to hunt him"

12

It must have been bottled up in him for years.

Waiter, another bottle.

13

No- I've got enough for three

-Also rear elevation- mike and Liz- they mustn't suspect Sandy

14

Oh no- oh my no

They have simply stepped in their own chewing gum.- I suppose Kidd has one of those private numbers the rich and mighty his behind in New York

15

I'll dig it out of Liz and give him a buzz

What will you say?

16

I'll be brief, blunt, belligerent. Hey- lay off that!

Why?

17

You are already in wine sister

Me? You lie. I never affects me, not in the slightest

18

That's because you never take it

Even if I did, it wouldn't

19

I have seen people fly in the face of Pommery before

I've just got a good head I guess

20

Don't say it, don't say it!

Sandy, you fool-

21

George will spank.

I could spank George for the way he behaved

22

You and Connor were gone for two hours, at least

You were along

23

All the same, tongues were wagging like tails. George said-

George wanted to leave sharp at twelve- how could we?

24

They need a lot of sleep, those big fellows

They must- then at one, with Father and Mother and Dinah- Then at two, then at three- every hour on the hour. We fought like wolves on the way home

25

I hope you explained

Certainly not. He should have known. He was extremely rude. You'd have thought I'd been out with Dexter.- I wonder where Dext was? I half expected him to- I don't like the look behind Dexter's eyes, Sandy. It makes me sad.

26

Don't be sad, Tracy

Oh, Sandy, if you knew how I envy you and Sue that darling fat creature you've just produced-

27

You'll probably have four or five of your own any day now

Six! Oh, I hope- I do hope- I hope I'm good for something besides knocking out golf balls and putting horses over fences

28

You're good for my money any day

Thanks! Was I really mean to George, I wonder? I don't want to be.

29

You're in an odd mood, little fellah. What's amiss- what's afoot?

I guess it's just that- a lot of things I always thought were terribly important I find now- and the other way around- and- oh, what the hell.

30

I don't think I'd spend much more time with Connor tonight, if I were you.

Why not?

31

Writers with wine sauce intoxicate little girls

They sort of do, don't they?- he fascinates me. He's so violent, Sandy.

32

He's fallen Tray. I could hear him bump.

Mind your own beeswax, old Nosey Parker

33

Get thee to bed

No!

34

- before you have to be carried.

No! No! No! I feel too delicious, Sandy. I feel just elegant. Is that my bedroom telephone?

35

Now you're hearing things

It couldn't be anyone but George. I was sort of swinish to him. Perhaps I'd better-As for you- get to work, you dog? Stop leaning on your shovel.

36

Miss not an inflection

Is it Connor the poet, or Connor the conspirator?

37

Champagne, entwining arms

That's pretty is it poetry?

38

Sample from his own pen: 'Pittsburgh is a gentle city'".

Sidney is a gentle man

39

Nimble scrivener, it's an idea

Brilliant I wish I'd thought of it

40

Baby Giant Tycooness

But would it not be a low and dirty deed?

41

What is this mist before my eyes?

I tell you what: let's all have a quick swim to brighten us up. Go get Liz, Sandy.

42

Not me it's too cold this early

It's the best hour of the day! Dexter and I always swam after parties.

43

I haven't got any bathing suit

But we won't need any. It's just ourselves!

44

Let's dip into this instead

No takers? Go get Liz anyway Sandy

45

If she's not in bed- or even if she is

That was an odd thing you just did

46

Me?

You. For a moment you made me- self conscience

47

How? About what?

Never mind. Hello, you

48

Hello

You look fine

49

I feel fine

Quite a fellah

50

They say

Did you enjoy the party?

51

The prettiest sight in this fine, pretty world is the Priviledged Class enjoying its priviledges.

Also somewhat of a snob

52

How do you mean?

I'm wondering.

53

Consider gentle reader they toil not neither do they spin

Oh yes they do! They spin in circles

54

- Tracy you can't marry that guy

George? - I'm going to. Why not?

55

I don't know, I'd have thought I'd be up for it, but somehow you just don't seem to match up

Then the fault's with me

56

Maybe so, all the same you can't do it

No? Come around noon tomorrow- I mean today

57

Tracy-

Yes, Mr. Connor?

58

How do you mean I'm a snob?

You're the worst kind there is: an intellectual sob. You've made up you mind awfully early it seems to me.

59

- and I'm nothing of the sort, not Mr. Connor

The time to make up your mind about people is never. Yes you are, and a complete one

60

You're quite a girl

You think?

61

I know.

Thank you, Professor. I don't think I'm exceptional

62

You are though

I know any number like me. You out to get around more

63

In the upper clahss? No, thanks

You're just a mass of prejudices aren't you? You're so much thought and so little feeling professor.

64

Oh I am am I?

Yes, you am, are you! Your damned intolerance furiates me. I mean infuriates me. I should think that of all people a writer would need tolerance. The fact is- you'll never- you can't be a first rate writer or a first rate human being until you learn to have some small regard for - aren't the geraniums pretty professor? Is it not a handsome day that begins?

65

Lay off that professor

Yes professor

66

You've got all the arrogance of your class alright haven't you?

Holy suds, what have classes got to do with it?

67

Quite a lot

Why? What do they matter- except for the people in them? George comes from the so- called lowered class, Dexter comes from the upper. Well?

68

Well?

- though there's a great deal to be said about Dexter- and don't you forget it!

69

I'll try not to

Mac, the night- watchman, is a prince amount men and Joey, the stable boy is a rat. Uncle Hugh is a saint. Uncle Willie's a pincher.

70

So what?

There aren't any rules about human beings, that's all!- you're teaching me thing, Professor; this is new to me. Thanks, I am beholden to you.

71

Not at all

"Upper" and "lower" my eye! I'll take the lower thanks.

72

- if you can't get a drawing room

What do you mean by that?

73

Mt mistake

Decidedly

74

Okay

You're insulting

75

I'm sorry

Oh don't apologize

76

Who the hells apologizing?

I never knew such a man

77

You wouldn't be likely to dear- not from where you sit

Talk about arrogance!

78

Tracy- (2nd one)

What do you want?

79

You're wonderful

Professor- may I got out?

80

Miss Lord will please wait

Miss Lord is priviledged.

81

I'm telling you

I'm-! Now I'm getting self conscience again. I- it's funny- Mike let's-

82

What?

I-I don't know- go up, I guess. It's late.

83

There are fires banked down in you, hearth fires

You- I don't seem to you- made of bronze then-

84

You've got tears in your eyes

Shut up, shut up! - oh mike - keep talking-keep talking ! Talk will you?

85

I've stopped

Why? Has your mind taken ahold again dear Professor?

86

You think so?

Yes, professor

87

A good thing don't you agree?

No, professor

88

Drop that Professor- you hear me?

Yes professor (coy)

89

That's really all I am to you is it?

Of course Professor

90

Are you sure?

Why, why, yes- yes of course Profess- golly. Golly Moses.

91

Tracy dear-

Mr. Connor- Mr. Connor-

92

Let me tell you something-

No don't- all of a sudden I've got the shakes

93

I have too

What is it?

94

It must be something like love

No, no! It mustn't be. It can't-

95

Why? Would it be inconvenient?

Terribly. Anyway, it isn't. I know it's not. Oh Mike, I'm a bad girl-

96

Not you

We're out of our mind

97

-'right into our hearts.

That ought to have music.

98

It has, hasn't it?- Tracy, you lovely-

They're coming

99

The hell-

It's-it's not far to the pool. It's only over the lawn, in the birch-grove- it'll be lovely now.

100

Come on-

Oh- it's as - it's as if my insteps- we're melting away- what is it? Have I- have I got feet of clay, or something?

101

-quick! Here they are-

I- I feel so small all at once

102

You're immense- you're tremendous

Not me- oh, not me! Put me in your pocket , Mike-
