I have no complaints.

But I can't see what difference a divorce would make to you.

I'll get you anything you want.

I already have everything I want.

I'm perfectly satisfied with things as they are.

Well I'm not. Think of my side of it. I want some happiness.

I think I have a right to it.

Of course you have. And you're very foolish if you don't take it.

If you two are really so very much in love...


I'm sorry if I shock you but I've had enough.

If the present arrangement doesn't suit you, that's too bad.

I like being Mrs. Richard Field.

I have a position in society as your wife that I have no intention of giving up.

You might as well make up your mind for that.

You may be sorry for that attitude, Louise.

I've tried to be honourable about this.

But if you force me, I'll have to divorce you.

Oh, indeed. Consult your lawyer, Richard.

You'll find there is no state or country would grant you a divorce if I chose to fight you.

And I warn you. I would fight.

Goodbye, Miss Lovering. Goodbye, Richard.

I'm sorry you had to go through all this. I was so sure...

I know.

Darling, I can't bear to see you this way.

That's the end of everything.

Everything that we planned.

There just doesn't seem to be any point in going on without you.

You don't have to.

You don't realize what you're saying.

Yes, I do.

But it isn't fair to you, I couldn't...

I wouldn't care.

No. I can't accept a decision made on the spur of the moment.

I tell you... you go away first and think it over.

But Richard...

The Amro Central sails tomorrow.

You're going aboard her and you're going to take a nice little trip.

The whole thing is too near us now, and when you come back...

if you still feel...

I shan't change.

Here we are, Miss Lovering.
