You won't have the chance.
(glancing at his watch)
Then I've a train to catch.
I tried to be late, John- it would

(They are nutty about
each other - he nods)
We're not much good at goodbyes,
Tell me about Beaumont- does he
understand how brilliant you are,
how lucky he is to have you?

me with compliments.
-well, it's just...
at such a time-
-oh please- if I'd been against your
taking this, you would have abandoned

"son" and I- note my confidence- will
have an excuse to come visit.
