I'm not the one to make trouble

but I can't just say nothing.

You 've been hinting for days.

Why don't you say what you mean?

Last time Jim was home

you had words all the time.

That was... Anyway, that's no business of yours.

- I'm Jim's sister, aren't I?

- And I'm his wife.

You wouldn't think so

the way you hang around Ted Purvis.

Ruby, leave her be.

I don't happen to be doing

what you'd like to think.

Think I don't know Ted Purvis?

You might give a thought to your husband.

I always have. You can't say I haven't.

I couldn't help noticing, that's all.


I'm sick and tired of it. You can't expect me to

shut my eyes to it with the reputation he's got.

I don't care what you say.

You're playing with fire and you know it.

- Sorry, but...

- Ruby, please.

Tilly, don't take any notice of her.

She can't pretend it's not him she's meeting.

- He's got a silk dressing gown.

- You go to school.

- I only want...

- It doesn't matter if I'm late.

Any more sauce from you

and back you go to your Aunt Maud's.

She won't have me.

- You go to school this minute.

- I haven't finished my fried bread.

Fried bread or no fried bread,

here's your school bag, now off you go.

All right, but I shan't learn nothing.

I'm sick of being the youngest in this house.

(Door slams)


Looks like being quite a nice day.

Anyway, Ted Purvis ought to be in the Forces.

He was turned down at his medical.

Sticking up for him, now.

Carrying on like that and Jim away in the army.

I'm not carrying on, though it's enough

to make anyone the way you keep harping.

It's not my fault if someone looks at me twice.

No-one gives you a second look, that's all.

Or you'd have landed someone better than Fred.

How dare you talk to me like that?

I was only thinking of Jim.
