Marjorie Winfield:
Bill, it's so difficult for me to ask you to understand, but... Why I can't possibly think of marrying you right now. And I can't tell you why.
Bill Sherman:
What do you mean you can't tell me? Why, I'm almost your husband! At least, I thought I was.
Marjorie Winfield:
You will be. Someday. But for now Bill, couldn't you please be sweet and understanding?
Bill Sherman:
But I don't want to be sweet and understanding! I want to be a husband!
Marjorie Winfield:
Bill Sherman:
It never entered my mind, Marjorie, that you ever had any doubt about your feelings towards me. But now everything's quite obvious. You're not even sure I'm the man you want to marry!


00:00:01.052 --> 00:00:02.056
00:00:02.076 --> 00:00:05.006
Marjorie, there's no need to be mysterious any longer, Marjorie.
00:00:05.008 --> 00:00:07.072
I happen to know now why you can't marry me.
00:00:07.092 --> 00:00:08.064
00:00:08.084 --> 00:00:09.008
A fine thing.
00:00:10.000 --> 00:00:13.068
A soldier overseas and his sweetheart carrying on with another man.
00:00:13.088 --> 00:00:15.016
What are you saying?
00:00:15.036 --> 00:00:17.008
Why, you know perfectly well the only man I saw while you were away
00:00:18.000 --> 00:00:21.006
- was Chester Finley. - I thought it was you.
00:00:21.008 --> 00:00:23.024
There I was fighting for democracy,
00:00:23.044 --> 00:00:25.072
and you were supposed to keep the home fires burning.
00:00:25.092 --> 00:00:28.016
Well, apparently, you two didn't even need a fire.
00:00:28.036 --> 00:00:29.072
- Why, I ought to... - Bill.
00:00:29.092 --> 00:00:32.056
Now, Marjorie, you don't have to defend me.
00:00:32.076 --> 00:00:35.028
If you're worth having, you're worth fighting for.
00:00:35.048 --> 00:00:39.000
Well, I'm glad you feel that way because you and I are going in the locker room.
00:00:39.002 --> 00:00:41.088
Please. I'm not worth it.
00:00:48.012 --> 00:00:50.052
Would you hold these, please? Thank you.
00:00:54.662 --> 00:00:58.044
Go ahead, Finley, you'd better start it, because I'm gonna finish it.
00:00:58.064 --> 00:00:59.076
Very well.
00:01:01.092 --> 00:01:03.032
I don't know.
00:01:08.000 --> 00:01:09.999
Chester, you hit Bill?
00:01:10.056 --> 00:01:14.028
Well, I hope it was him. I didn't have my glasses on.
00:01:15.064 --> 00:01:17.999
Bill, are you hurt?
00:01:18.007 --> 00:01:20.088
Really, Bill, aren't you being childish about Chester?
00:01:21.998 --> 00:01:24.012
Well, you know very well I've always considered him a bore.
00:01:24.999 --> 00:01:28.000
He must have been very boring that night you responded to his admiration.
00:01:28.002 --> 00:01:30.006
What are you saying?
00:01:31.028 --> 00:01:34.016
The reason you didn't want to get married.
00:01:36.072 --> 00:01:40.001
"The thought of one of us being married to another is most agonizing."
00:01:41.002 --> 00:01:42.999
Where did you get this?
00:01:42.052 --> 00:01:45.001
You ought to know. You gave it to Wesley to burn.
00:01:46.999 --> 00:01:48.001
Bill. Bill.
00:01:48.064 --> 00:01:51.048
- Chester didn't write that note. - What?
