Richard: You see, I want you to marry me.
Richard: Because I think very highly of you.
Mary: Very highly! Goodness.
Richard: I mean it. I think we’d do well together. We could be a good team.
Mary: Now, that sounds better. But I can’t help thinking that tradition demands… a little mention of love.
Richard: Oh, I can talk about love, and moon, and June and all the rest of it if you wish, but we’re more than that. We’re strong and sharp, and we can build something worth having, you and I. If you’ll let us.
Mary: Your proposal is improving by leaps and bounds. …You must give me some time, but I promise to think about it. Properly.
Richard: I’m counting on it.
