I'm saying he could be,

in the right hands.

Oh, dear. This is alarming.

Can we get away from the service?

- You mean change the subject?

- I meant fresh air actually.

Of course.

- So how long have you been married?

- Is your character married?

Yes, he's been married happily

for ten years.

Henry's the perfect model then.

We've been married ten years.

You know that...

happiness is even harder to write

than goodness.

Henry prefers habit to happiness.

- I'll give them to you to sign.

- We were discussing the house, darling.

Let me fill that for you.

- It's a lovely house.

- My wife found it.

And your wife is charming.

- She's a great help to me.

- Yes, I'm sure.

They've made a picture

of one of your books, haven't they?

Yes, it's playing at the Rialto.

- I'll take you both.

- Far too busy for pictures, I'm afraid.

- Come out, Henry, for once?

- You know I can't, darling.

- Where are you going?

- Murderer's promises keep.

- You can't keep saying that.

- It's true.

- I know.

There was one scene you did write.

Describe it.

Where he offered her onions

with her meal.

She refused because her husband

didn't like the smell.

He got angry.

And why did he get angry?

He didn't want to think of her

going home to him.

Does Henry like onions?


I'm in love, you know.

Me too.


Come upstairs.


One minute, dear.

What if he heard?

He wouldn't recognize the sound.

- Sarah, you been eating onions?

- Sorry, darling.

So, Bendrix,

how was the picture?

Up to scratch?

Of course, as she began to love me...
