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...
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!

Transcript:
Bill!
Marjorie, there's no need to be mysterious
any longer, Marjorie.
I happen to know now
why you can't marry me.
Huh?
A fine thing.
A soldier overseas and his sweetheart
carrying on with another man.
What are you saying?
Why, you know perfectly well
the only man I saw while you were away
- was Chester Finley.
- I thought it was you.
There I was fighting for democracy,
and you were supposed
to keep the home fires burning.
Well, apparently,
you two didn't even need a fire.
- Why, I ought to...
- Bill.
Now, Marjorie,
you don't have to defend me.
If you're worth having,
you're worth fighting for.
Well, I'm glad you feel that way because
you and I are going in the locker room.
Please. I'm not worth it.
Would you hold these, please? Thank you.
Go ahead, Finley, you'd better start it,
because I'm gonna finish it.
Very well.
I don't know.
Chester, you hit Bill?
Well, I hope it was him.
I didn't have my glasses on.
Bill, are you hurt?
Really, Bill, aren't you being childish
about Chester?
Well, you know very well
I've always considered him a bore.
He must have been very boring that night
you responded to his admiration.
What are you saying?
The reason you didn't want to get married.
"The thought of one of us being married
to another is most agonizing."
Where did you get this?
You ought to know.
You gave it to Wesley to burn.
Bill. Bill.
- Chester didn't write that note.
- What?
