I thought it was Sandy's typewriter woke me up

Hello! Isn't a fine day, though! Is everyone fine? That's fine! My I'm hearty.

1

How are you otherwise?

I don't know what's the matter with me. I must have had too much sun yesterday

2

It's awfully easy to get too much

My eyes don't open properly. Please go home Dext

3

Not till we get those eyes open

Uncle Willie, good morning

4

That remains to be seen

Aren't you here early?

5

It's nearly half past twelve

It can't be!

6

Maybe it can't but it is

Where- where's mother?

7

Do you want her?

No I just wondered

8

She's talking with the orchestra, and father, and the minister, and-

Doctor Parsons- already?

9

And it's Saturday

Thanks loads. It's nice to have things accounted for. – Only I wonder what this might be?

10

It looks terribly like a wristwatch

But who is? I found it in my room. I nearly stepped on it

11

Getting out of bed?

Yes. Why?

12

I just wondered.

There's another mystery, uncle Willy.

13

You don't say

Yes – my bracelet and my engagement ring are missing everywhere

14

Here you are

But you weren't at the party

15

Wasn't I?

We're are you?

16

Don't tell me you don't remember!

I – I do now, sort of – but there were such a lot of people

17

There's nothing like a swim after a late night

– A swim

18

Oh Dinah if conversation drags, you might tell Tracy your dream

What did he say?

19

Tray – I hate you to get married and go away

I'll miss you, darling. I'll miss all of you

20

It isn't like when you marry Dexter and you just moved down the road a ways

I'll come back often. It's only Wilkes-Barre

21

It gripes me

Baby

22

You know I did had the funniest dream about you last night

Did you? What was it?

23

It was terribly interesting, – and awfully scary, sort of –

Do you like my dress Dina?

24

Yes ever so much

It feels awfully heavy – you better rush and get ready yourself

25

Turn around Tracy. Yes it looks lovely

What's that – that scratching sound I hear?

26

I can't quite grasp it. Get dressed, Dina.

That sun is certainly bright alright isn't it?

27

It was up awfully early

Was it?

28

It's supposed to be the longest day of the year or something isn't it?

I wouldn't doubt it for a minute

29

It was all certainly pretty rooty tooth

What was?

30

I dream

Dina, you'll have to learn sooner or later that no one is interested in anyone else's dreams.

31

And guess what I thought I saw coming over out of the woods?

I haven't the faintest idea. A skunk?

32

It was Mr. Connor

Mr Connor?

33

With his both arms full of something. And guess what it turned out to be?

What?

34

It was sort of like as if you were coming from the pool-

Cool – I'm going crazy. I'm standing here solidly on my own two hands going crazy. – And then what?

35

His wind can't be very good

And then what –?

36

Was sort of crooning –

I never crooned in my life!

37

I guess it was just sort of sounded like you were. Then he – guess what?

I- couldn't possibly

38

And then I must have fallen even faster asleep, because the next thing I knew it was 8 o'clock and the typewriter still going

Sandy – typewriter -

39

So in a minute I got up and went to your door and peeked in to make sure you were alright – and guess what?

What?

40

You were. He was gone by then

Gone? of course he was gone – he was never there

41

I know Tracy

Well! I should certainly hope you did!

42

I just wouldn't know what to do – and it was all only a dream.

Naturally!

43

I know Dexter said so straight off – but isn't it funny, though –

Dexter!

44

Yes – he said –

You told dexter all that?

45

Not one single word. – But you know how quick he is

Dina Lord – you little fiend how can you –?

46

I'm going

Bother

47

Yes Tracy?

I'm glad you came back. I'm glad you're here

48

Thank you child

I'm sorry – I'm truly sorry I'm a disappointment to you

49

Good morning

Oh hello

50

How do you do?

Did – did you have a good sleep?

51

Wonderful. How about you?

Marvelous. Have you ever seen a heckuva day?

52

Never. what did it set you back?

Got it for nothing, for being a good girl

53

I'm going, don't worry –

Why should you?

54

I guess you must have things you wish to discuss

Things to –? What are you talking about?

55

I'll be ready when you are.

She's always trying to make trouble – how's your work coming – are you doing us up Brown?

56

I've – somehow I've lost my angle

How do you mean, Mike?

57

I just got so damn tolerant all at once, I doubt if I'll ever be able to write another line.

You are a fella, Mike.

58

Or the mug of this world I don't know

When you're at work you ought to be doing, you'll soon see that tolerance – what's the matter with your chin?

59

Does it show?

A little. Why?

60

I guess I just stuck it out too far

- into a door, in the dark?

61

Are you - are you alright Tracy?

Me? Of course ! Why shouldn't I be?

62

That was a flock of wine we put away

I never felt better in my life

63

That's just Daisy

I – I guess we're both lucky to have such good head

64

Yes, I guess

It must be awful for people who – you know – get up and make speeches or – or try to start a fight – or you know – misbehave in general

65

It certainly must

It must be- some sort if hidden weakness coming out

66

Weakness? Im not so sure of that

Anyhow, I had a simply wonderful evening. I hope you enjoyed it too

67

I enjoyed the last part of it

Really? Why?- why especially the last?

68

Are you asking me, Tracy?

Oh, you mean the swim!- we did swim, and so forth, didn't we?

69

We swam and so forth

Mike-

70

You darling darling girl

Mike!

71

What can I say to you? Tell me darling –

Not anything – don't say anything. And especially not darling.

72

Never in this world will I ever forget you

Not anything I said

73

You're going to go through it with it, and then-

Through with what?

74

The Wedding

Why – why shouldn't I?

75

Hello I'm only saying what you said last night!

I said a lot of things last night, it seems.

76

But understand: also no regrets about last night.

Why should I have?

77

You're aces Tracy

You don't know what I mean! I'm asking you- tell me straight out – tell me the reason why I should have any – no – don't - just tell me – what time is it?

78

What happened to my wristwatch?

Why? Is it broken?

79

It's gone. I've lost it somewhere.

I can't tell you how extremely sorry I am to hear that

80

Oh well – I'd always just as soon not know the time

There on the table –

81

I'll give a reward, or something.

I don't think any reward will be expected

82

Dr.'s orders tray

What is it

83

Just the juice of a few flowers

Peppermint –

84

It removes the sting

Oh Dext – don't say that!

85

Why not Tray?

– Nothing will – nothing ever can. Oh, dexter – I've been the most terrible thing to you

86

I doubt it very much

You don't know, you don't know!

87

Well maybe I shouldn't

You've got to – you must! I couldn't stand it, if you didn't! Oh Dext – what am I going to do

88

A fellow named Kittredge or something

George –

89

I splendid chap- very high morals – very broad shoulders –

I've got to tell him

90

Tell him what?

I've got to tell him

91

But if he's got any brain at all, he'll have realized by this time what a fool he made of himself, when he –

– When he what? Hello? Hello, George – this is Tracy, look – I don't care whether it's bad luck or not, but I've got to see you for a minute before the wedding – what what note? I didn't get any note – when? Well, why didn't someone tell me? – Right come on the run. He sent a note over at 10 o'clock

92

I told you he'd come to his senses.

Was – was he here, too?

93

Sure

My god- why didn't you sell tickets?

94

Finish your drink

Will it help?

95

You rang miss?

Isn't there a not for me from Mr. Kittridge somewhere?

96

I believe it was put on the hall table upstairs. Mrs. Lawrence said not to disturb you

I'd like to have it, if I may

97

Very well, Miss

Say something, Dext- anything.

98

No- you do

Oh Dext- I'm wicked! I'm such an unholy mess of a girl

99

That's not even conversation

But never in all my life – not if I live to be 100 – will I ever forget the way you tried to – to stand me on my feet again this morning.

100

I like my presents at least to be acknowledged

It was beautiful and sweet, Dext

101

She was quite a boat the true love

Was and is

102

She had the same initials as yours- did you ever realize that?

No I never did

103

My she was yare

She was yare alright. I wasn't what I?

104

Wasn't what

Yare

105

I'll never forget you down on your knees on the deck every morning with your little can of Polish

I wouldn't let even you help, would I?

106

Not even me

I made her shine – where is she now?

107

I'm going to sell her to Rufus Wachress at Oyster Bay

You're going to sell the true love?

108

Why not?

For money?

109

He wired an offer yesterday

To that fat old rum pot?

110

What the hell does it matter?

She's too clean, she's too yare.

111

But of course., if you should want her

-No- I don't want her

112

I'm going to design another for myself along more practical lines

Are you?

113

I started on the drawings a couple of weeks ago

What will you call her?

114

I thought the "True Love II"- what do you think?

Dexter if you call any boat that I promise I'll blow that boat with you aboard right out of the water

115

I know it's not very imaginative but-

Just try that's all! formation Mark I'll tell you what she can call it, if you like –

116

What?

In fond rememberance of me-

117

What?

The Easy Virtue

118

Trey I'll be damned if I'll have you thinking such things of yourself!

What would you like me to think?

119

But I do know that virtue so-called is no matter of a single misstep or two

You don't think so?

120

Something inherent it's something regardless of anything

Like fun it is

121

Maybe this is your coming of age

I don't know – oh, I don't know anything anymore!

122

That's just fine Tray

Oh be still you! Thanks Edward

123

All our best wishes Miss

Thanks Edward, thanks very much

124

And all ours Tracy

Thank you, thank you everybody.

125

Tray – he's here! he's arrived!

Who has

126

Kid – Sydney kid

What for? What does he want?

127

What the – !

Oh, now I remember

128

Tracy? Tracy!

Yes?

129

I'm afraid it's the deadline Tracy

So is this. Listen – "my dear Tracy: your conduct last night was so shocking to my ideals of womanhood, that my attitude toward you and the prospect of a happy and beautiful life together has changed materially. Your, to me, totally unexpected breach of common decency, not to mention the moral aspect –"

130

Tracy!

Hello, George

131

Tracy- all these people

It's only a letter from a friend. They're my friends too. "-Not to mention the moral aspect, certainly entitles me to a full explanation, before going through with our proposed marriage. And the light of day, I am sure that you will agree with me. Otherwise, with profound regrets and all best wishes, yours very sincerely – yes George I quite agree with you – in the light of day or the dark of night for richer for poorer for better for worse in sickness and in health – and thank you so very much for your good wishes at this time

132

That's all you got to say?

What else? I wish for your sake, as well as mine, I had an explanation. But unfortunately I have none. You better just say good riddance George

133

Isn't easy you know

I don't see why

134

You'll Grant I had a right to be angry and very angry

You certainly had, you certainly have

135

For your sake, as well, you said –

Yes it would be nice to know

136

On the very eve of your wedding, and affair with another man –

I told you I agreed George – and I tell you again good riddance to me

137

That's for me to decide

Well, I wish you would a little more quickly

138

Look, Kittridge-

If there was someway to make you see that – that regardless of it – or even because of it – somehow I feel more of a person, George

139

That's a little difficult to understand

Yes I can see that it would be

140

kit Ridge it just might interest you to know that this so-called affair consisted of exactly 2 kisses and one rather late swim

Thanks Mike but there's no need to –

141

All of which I thoroughly enjoyed, and the memory of which I wouldn't part with for anything

It's no use Mike

142

I do

Why? Was I so damned unattractive- so distant so forbidding or something that –?

143

It's fine talk to!

I'm asking a question!

144

For wine, and there are rules about that, dammit

Thank you, Mike. I think men are wonderful.

145

Well that's a relief I'll admit. Still –

Why? Where's the difference? If my wonderful marvelous beautiful virtue is still intact, it's no thanks to me, I assure you

146

I don't think –

– It's purely by courtesy of the gentleman from South Bend

147

I appreciate that. It was a little hard for me too at first –

Oh, Liz-

148

And if we don't, maybe we ought to

Liz

149

You had too much to drink –

That seems to be the consensus of opinion

150

Will you promised me never to touch the stuff again?

No George I don't believe I will. There are certain things about that other girl I rather like

151

But a man expects his wife -

To behave herself. Naturally.

152

But if it hadn't been for the drink last night, all this might not have happened

But apparently nothing did. What made you think it had?

153

It didn't take much imagination, I can tell you that

Not much, perhaps – but just of a certain kind

154

It seems you didn't think any too well of yourself

That's the odd thing George somehow I had hoped you'd think better of me and I did

155

I'm not going to quibble Tracy all the evidence was there

I was guilty straight off – that is, until I was proved innocent

156

Let's let bygones be bygones – what do you say question

Yes – and goodbye, Georgia

157

I don't understand you

Please – goodbye.

158

Look Here Tracy

You're too good for me George. You're 100 times to good

159

I never said -

I'd make you most unhappy that is, I do my best to

160

If that's the way you want it-

That's the way it is.

161

There goes George -

My sainted aunt – that Welter of faces! What in the name of all that's holy and am I to do?

162

Forgot your hat Miss Tracy

Oh God – oh dear God – have mercy on Tracy exclamation

163

Tracy (Mike)

Yes Mike?

164

Forget the license

Liscence?

165

I got you into this, I'll get you out – will you marry me, Tracy?

No Mike – thanks but no

166

You've got me all confused – why not –?

– Because I don't think Liz would like it – and I'm not sure that you would – and I'm even a little doubtful about myself. But – I'm beholden to you, Mike, I'm most beholden

167

It'll be alright Tracy you've been got out of jams before

Got out of them, did you say?

168

Is there anything special you want me to say?

No! I'll say it, whatever it is – I won't be got out of Anything more, thanks

169

Oh this just can't be happening – it can't

I'm – I m- hello! Good morning. - I'm -that is to say – I'm terribly sorry to keep you waiting, but – but there's been a little hitch in the proceedings. I've made a terrible fool of myself – which isn't unusual – and my fiancé – my fiancé –

170

Wait my dear

-my fiancée, that was, that is – he thinks we'd better call it a day, and I quite agree. – Dexter – Dexter – what the Hell next?

171

Two years ago you were invited to a wedding in this house and I did you out of it by eloping to Maryland -

Two years ago that you were invited to a wedding in the house and I did you out of it by a looping to Maryland – Dexter, Dexter, where are you?

172

Which was Very bad manners

Which was Very bad manners

173

But I hope to make it up to you by going through with it now as originally planned

But I hope to make it up to you by – by going – by going beautifully through with it now – as originally and most beautifully planned. Because there's something awfully nice about a wedding – I don't know – they're gay and attractive – and I've always wanted one –

174

So if you'll just keep your seats a minute

So if you'll just keep your seats a minute

175

That's all

That's all... Dexter -are you sure?

176

Not in the least but I'll risk it – will you?

You bet!- and you didn't do it just to soften the blow?

177

No, Tray

Nor to save my face?

178

It's a nice little face

Oh- I'll be yare now- I'll promise to be yare!

179

Be whatever you like, you're my Redhead- all set?

All set!- oh, how sis this ever happen?

180

Daughter-

I love you Father

181

And I love you, Daughter

Never in my life have I been so full of love before -

182

See you soon Red!

See you soon, Dext! How do I look?

183

Like a queen- like a goddess

Do you know how I feel?

184

How?

Like a human- like a human being

185

Is that all right?

All right? Oh father! It's heaven
