I'm sorry.

I'll see you in the morning.


For hours

I've been sitting here,

never conscious of the time,

and still Maria

hasn't returned.

I hate her.


Oh, it's you.

What are you doing,

spying on me?


why don't you say something?

Spying. Always spying.

Maria, I want to talk to you.

You must listen to reason.

I know just what

you're going to say.

You poor fool,

do you think I'm stupid?

Stop it.

Stop it!

Stop it!

Take your hands off me!

Maria, we can't

go on like this.

You'd like to get away

from me, wouldn't you?

But you can't.

I like my title.

A doctor's wife.

I have money, position,

and there's nothing

you can do about it.

No, Doctor,

there's nothing you can do.

I'm not so sure.

Not murder, Doctor.

You haven't the courage.

I wonder.

Good morning, Doctor.

Good morning, Stella.

I'm sorry about

that call last night.

I didn't realize

that it was so late.

Oh, I understand.

There's something that I have

to talk to you about, Stella.

I had another row

with my wife last night.

Why are you telling me this?

Because for the first time,

Maria made me realize that...

Oh, Stella, we're adult.

This business of hiding the truth from

one another, that's not being honest.

But there's nothing

we can do about it.

No, I guess there isn't.

Good afternoon, Doctor.

I didn't expect you so soon.

Bryant, where is Mrs. Steele?

I don't know, sir.

Where is she?

Mrs. Steele said something, I believe,

about going away for the weekend.

I'm sorry, Bryant. That's

all right, sir, I understand.


What are you

doing here so early?

Oh, just look at yourself.

This is a fine way

to start the week.

The week?

Is this Monday?

Of course it is.

Monday. And I don't

even remember coming here.
