Was I like that?

EVERITT

Of course you were.

ALICE

Oh, I’m glad!

MRS. EVERITT

Thank you, dear, but you’re not half so glad as I am.

EVERITT

It’s queer, there used to be a fine old stock up in this country.  It seems to have died out.  The people here don’t half appreciate the place.

MRS. EVERITT

But you haven’t seen many of them, have you?

EVERITT

No, I talked with some in the bar room.

ALICE

Oh, the bar room?

EVERITT

Yes, I know.  One can’t judge from that.  A filthy place—­it made me ashamed of drinking.  I only went in hoping to see some of the people I used to know.

MRS. EVERITT

Oh!

WALTER

Where’s my portfolio?

MRS. EVERITT

In the office, with those hand bags we decided not to open.

WALTER

I’m going to get it.  I just had an idea.... (He goes out)

EVERITT

It’s only ten o’clock, but it seems like midnight.

ALICE

So it does.  Are we going on to-morrow?  Will the car be all right?

EVERITT

George says so.  To-morrow?  I suppose so.

ALICE

Well, I’m going to bed.

MRS. EVERITT

I hope Harold is asleep.  Good night, dear.

EVERITT

Good night, Mary.

ALICE

You said “Mary.”

EVERITT

Did I?  Well, you might be, for all that.

ALICE (leaving)

Good night.

EVERITT

If she had on that blue dress you used to wear, your own mother couldn’t tell you apart.

MRS. EVERITT

Charles.

EVERITT

What?
