and sensibler. "

All aboard!

Cicely, darling, what would happen

if you didn't take this train?

Why? It wouldn't matter

if you wanted me to stay.

Now stay right there.

Stay right there.

I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

If there's anything

I object to

it's demonstrations

of affection in public places.

Me, too.

It's just one flight up.

The key.

Chris, I like this. I don't

really rate all this luxury.

I... I mean...

I mean bedroom

and sitting room.

They just let me have it while...

While the real tenant is away.

He's a foreign correspondent on

our paper, down in Mexico now.

What will you do

when he comes back?

Oh, well, they'll send him away

someplace else, Timbuktu or someplace.

Is that how newspaper

correspondents live?

Well, the successful ones do.

Lots of people who got famous afterwards

lived in this house, didn't they?

Important people.

Yeah. The landlady will tell

you all about them sometime.

She's the Italian woman

who lives in the basement

and cooks marvelous spaghetti

dinners for her favorite tenants.

Yeah. She'll tell you

all about them.

Oh, she'll tell you

about O. Henry.

He used to live

right here in this house.

You told me.


Darling, I know as well as you

do we're making conversation

and doing it badly.

Never mind, let's go on.

Well, you might take off

your hat and coat.

I mean, I wouldn't take it

too seriously if you did.

I mean...

There really isn't very

much of a view from here,

but we have a very fine view of a

tree from this one over in there.

Oh, nice.

I can smell the North River

and almost see the ships.

Hey, Cicely, you're shaking.

No, I'm not.

Oh, my darling, say you're

glad and I'll be glad.

Or say you're sorry

if that's true.

I'll send you back to college

on the next train.
