Mr. O'HARA

She's after settling accounts with the overseer, but

she'll be along for the ball tonight.

INDIA:

Welcome to Twelve Oaks, Mr. O'Hara.

Mr. O'HARA

Thank you kindly, India. Your daughter is getting

prettier everyday, John.

JOHN WILKES:

Oh, India, here are the O'Hara girls, we must greet

them.

INDIA:

Can't stand that Scarlett. If you'd see the way she

throws herself at Ashley.

JOHN WILKES:

Now, now, that's your brother's business. You must

remember your duties as hostess. Good morning, girls!

You look lovely. Good morning, Scarlett.

SCARLETT:

India Wilkes. What a lovely dress. I just can't take

my eyes off it.

(Scarlett enters the hall with her family.)

MAN1

Good morning, Miss Scarlett.

SCARLETT:

Morning.

MAN2

Look mighty fine this morning, Miss Scarlett.

SCARLETT:

Thank you.

MANS:

Morning Miss Scarlett.

SCARLETT:

Good Morning.

MAN4

Pleasure to see you, Miss Scarlett.

MANS:

Howdy, Miss Scarlett.

SCARLETT:

Ashley!

ASHLEY:

Scarlett! My dear!

SCARLETT:

I've been looking for you everywhere. I've got

something I must tell you. Can't we go some place

where it's quiet?

ASHLEY:

Yes I'd like to, but... I've something to tell you,

too. Something I...I hope you'll be glad to hear. Now

come and say hello to my cousin, Melanie Wilkes.

SCARLETT:

Oh, do we have to?

ASHLEY:

She's been looking forward to seeing you again.

Melanie! Here's Scarlett.

MELANIE:

Scarlett. I'm so glad to see you again.

SCARLETT:

Melanie Hamilton, what a surprise to run into you

here. I hope you're going to stay with us a few days

at least.

MELANIE:

I hope I shall stay long enough for us to become real

friends, Scarlett. I do so want us to be.

ASHLEY:

We'll keep her here, won't we, Scarlett?

SCARLETT:

Oh, we'll just have to make the biggest fuss over

her, won't we, Ashley? And if there's anybody who

knows how to give a girl a good time, it's Ashley.

Though I expect our good times must seem terribly

silly to you because you're so serious.
