  • Katie  

    By the way, how do you know she isn't here?

  • Calbury  

    She?

  • Katie  

    The girl the Evening News said you were going to marry?

  • Calbury  

    Oh, yes. I saw that. Me and Penelope Fitzdouglas. Isn't it ridiculous?

  • Katie (annoyed)  

    Sidesplitting.

  • Katie  

    Sorry, am I going too fast for you?

  • Chips  

    My dear young lady, I could easily go just as fast as you if I cared to risk a broken ankle and be carried back on a stretcher. It's extremely foolish to leap around in a ruined circus like a mountain goat. Especially in those shoes. These stones are treacherous.

  • Katie  

    Yes, well, you're very active for your age!

  • Chips  

    Since you cannot conceivably know what my age is, your most flattering compliment must be based on a somewhat conjectural premise.

  • Katie  

    You've done it again. Now that's three times you've made me laugh. And only this morning I thought I'd never laugh again. I suppose it's your being a schoolmaster.

  • Chips  

    I fail to see what is so laughable about that.

  • Katie  

    Well, no, it's not laughable. One doesn't laugh at people only because they're funny. Not some people. C'mon...there's so much to see before the sun goes down on us...

  • Katie  

    What does that mean?

  • Chips  

    Gnothe seauthon. Know yourself. The watchword of Apollo.

  • Katie  

    The god of prophecy?

  • Chips  

    Among other things...

  • Katie  

    Know yourself. That's quite a watchword. Gnothe seauthon.

  • Katie  

    I'm going to ask Apollo a question.

  • Chips  

    You mustn't ask a personal question, well, not a specific one like uh...

  • Katie  

    Like "Will Bill Calbury come back to me?" No (sighs), I won't bore Apollo with that, I promise you.
