[softly]
What?
Effie:
I am afraid that we'll have to postpone the wedding till after the oil deal is signed.
Clemson Reade:
[alarmed]
What?
Effie:
I don't see any other way. Truly I don't. There are so many things to get done. Meetings, conferences, reports, and all of them so urgent.

So is our wedding.

Clem...
What?
I'm afraid we'll have to postpone the wedding
till after the oil deal is signed.
What?
I don't see any other way, truly I don't.
There are so many things to get done.
Meetings, conferences, reports,
and all of them so urgent.
So is our wedding.
But I mean really urgent.
Oh, for God's...
I mean, we can wait. The Middle East can't.
We can get married any time.
Can we?
Look, darling, I want us to be together
just as much as you do.
But I can't let MacBride down.
He's counting on me.
Of course not.
Perhaps we could work in the wedding somehow.
You know, between phone calls.
Now just a minute. Don't you think you're being
a little selfish?
You mean for wanting to get married?
No, for putting your own happiness
before the welfare of the United States.
Oh, Effie, if I thought the welfare of the United States
depended upon your answering a telephone...
Oh, so that's it.
You think what I'm doing is like belonging to a garden club
or having a hot game of Mahjong with the girls.
