Oh, there's nothing so good

as a real rain.

Except maybe a blizzard.

Listen to her.

I'd be out walking in her right now

if I had any place to go.

Maybe that's the best time

to walk in the rain...

...when you got nowheres to go.

If you want, you can figure

you're cast away on a jungle island...

...with nothing

and nobody around you but rain.

Think how surprised you'd be if you were

cast away on a jungle island for 10 weeks...

...you suddenly saw a girl

standing beside you.

You know,

this isn't gonna let up for hours.

What do you say we walk out and soak?

I can put your bundles under my coat

and they won't get wet. Here, give me.

Okay. Come on. Alley-oop.

I bet there's a bus coming.

You wanna catch it?


Well, we're off the jungle island now...

...afloat on a raft, which I knocked together

with some homemade nails.

Do you have any idea

where we're heading?

- I'm going home.

- I figured that.

You got a ma or pa or something?

- My mother's at home.

- Oh, that's wonderful.

Let's get down to brass tacks.

My name is Private Art Hugenon...

...and I'm from Tennessee,

only I don't speak it.

I've been in town two days on a pass...

...and have, to an extent,

exhausted most points of interest...

...including the famous street corners...

...the top of the Empire State Building

and the zoo.

What's your name?

- Ruth Wood.

- Ruth Wood.

Ruthie, I can tell by looking at you

that you're a girl a man can trust.

You know, a fella has to be pretty careful

in a town like this, particularly a soldier.

Tell you what, I'm inviting you and your ma

to have dinner with me tonight.

This stuff will keep till tomorrow.

My mother never goes out.

And you have to go home

every night for dinner?


Well, then we'll dine at your house.
