A member of the Greek Chorus introduces another member of the Chorus as Aunt Mary, Peck's wife. Aunt Mary tells us that Peck is a good husband and provider, always working hard and always doing little things around the house. She also tells us that he has what she calls "troubles," and that a great many men who fought in World War Two have similar troubles; she sharply refers to the fact that these men never had the chance to get help that soldiers, and men, of later generations have had. She suggests that Li'l Bit is manipulating Peck, taking his attention away from life at home.
