No, it isn't true. No longer.

Becky, you're coming home with me

until you find suitabele employment somewhere.

No, no, I mustn't burden you.

Oh, you angel.

Huzzah! I shout Huzzah!

My man will seek your trunk presently.

I feel it my duty to warn you.

I can't abandon her. She has nobody.


Goodbye, Miss Pinkerton. Goodbye!

Bye! Bye Amelia!

Goodbye, goodbye!

Miss Pinkerton! Words are but little thanks.

Yet let this speak volumes.

Back to your rooms!

For you, Becky.

I shall press this one too.

I've kept all of your dear flowers.

Becky, I don't know what to say to you.

By Jove, dare I call you my...

Your what, Joseph?

My bird?

Or something similar?

I wonder if your George Osborne in there

is calling Amelia something similar?

How I admire men who do not hesitate

to express their emotions.

I offer you my heart, my true affection.

I offer you love, Amelia, and a lifetime of devotion.

Now you've heard us both, the choice is yours, madam.

Why do you make it so difficult for me?

Two little boys I grew up with.

How am I to choose between them?

Am I to say no to you, William,

whom I've always respected?

Or to you, George, whom I've always...


Loved, Amelia, loved?


Let him be your choice, then. Take George.

Oh, my dear.

I shall love you nonetheless, always.

Only I shall think of you as a sister.

A sister who is married to my best...

my oldest friend.

William Dobbin, no man had a truer friend.

By Jove, that scoundrel kissed my sister's hand.

I'll make him marry her.

Too late, Joseph.

The question has just been popped.

What? Why, I didn't realize it.

Why, that's beautiful.

What a handsome best man you'll make.

Only I'll not be there to see you.

I'll be gone by then.

Not if Joseph Sedley has anything to do with it.
