Elizabeth Marten:' He needed to cry.
Tom Corbett: Well then cry according to the size of it!
Elizabeth Marten: It doesn't work that way!
Tom Corbett: Well I don't agree! Look if you're sad you cry. You don't save up your tears and go to a sad movie do you?
Elizabeth Marten: But we do we all do! Were do you think we get the tears we cry at a movie?

Tom Corbett: Thank you very much! And thank you for kind plus and your fudge but we're doing just fine.
Tom Corbett: I'm very sorry for all of you! Please forgive me! [Elizabeth runs to her apartment bedroom and slams the door behind her.]
