I'll think of some excuse

that will be all right.

I'm glad!

What made you decide

not to take the train?

You asked me not to. No. I

mean what made you say yes?

Oh, I made up my mind long ago I'd

say yes if you ever asked me to stay.

There's never been anyone

else for me. Nor for me.

Chris, I can't be...

I can't be sensible.

Not when you're

so close and I'm so happy.

Where do I sit? Here?

Just not too close.

Chris, just because I got off that train

this morning, I don't want you to think...

Well, I mean, it isn't

necessary... Think what?


Are you trying to tell me that

I don't have to marry you?

Why, darling...

Somebody has to be sensible.

A girl at 21 is older in

many ways than a man is at 25.

Oh, yeah? Yeah, I know all

about that superstition, Grandma.

If I were your grandmother,

you know what I'd advise you?

What big eyes

you have, Grandma.

I'm serious.

If I came to you and said,

"Grandma, I love this girl and I earn

$25 a week as a newspaper reporter,

"and I want to marry and live happily

ever after," do you know what I'd say?

No. What would you say,


I'd say, "It's the spring, my

son, nothing but the spring. "

The trouble with you, Grandma,

is you're old fashioned.

And the trouble with you,

Grandpa, is that I adore you.

There's somebody at the door.

Hey! Hey! Tommy, come here.

A friend of mine.

Cicely, this is Thomas Abbott.

Cicely Hunt.

He lives downstairs in front. He's in the

motion picture business and he's crazy.

How do you do, Tommy?

How do you do?

Hey, what are you doing out

at this hour in the morning?

I was just coming in.

Well, how long will it take

you to pull yourself together?

How much together?

Mr. Abbott, how would you like

to be a witness at our wedding?

Hey, let me get this thing
