TERRY MCKAY: Yes.
NICKIE FERRANTE: Will he be waiting?
TERRY MCKAY: Will she?
NICKIE FERRANTE: Oh, yes.
TERRY MCKAY: What makes life so difficult?
NICKIE FERRANTE: People?
Are you in love with him?
TERRY MCKAY: I'm not now.
NICKIE FERRANTE: You know, I've never done a day's work in my whole life.
TERRY MCKAY: I know. I've been thinking about that. What'd you say?
NICKIE FERRANTE: I didn't say anything.
TERRY MCKAY: Yes, you did.
NICKIE FERRANTE: What?
TERRY MCKAY: You said I was very fond of expensive things, furs and diamonds and stuff like that.
NICKIE FERRANTE: Did I say that?
TERRY MCKAY: Pink champagne.
That's the kind of life we've both been used to.
It might be a little difficult to... Do you like beer?
NICKIE FERRANTE: Different.
TERRY MCKAY: My father drank beer. In the morning.
NICKIE FERRANTE: He was a beer drinker?
TERRY MCKAY: Later in the day, he drank anything. Winter must be cold for those with no warm memories. We've already missed the spring.
NICKIE FERRANTE: Yes. This is probably my last chance.
TERRY MCKAY: Mine too.
It's now or never.
TERRY MCKAY: Never is a frightening word.
NICKIE FERRANTE: We'd be fools to let happiness pass us by.
TERRY MCKAY: And just because you haven't...
NICKIE FERRANTE: Worked? Doesn't mean to say I couldn't. No, of course not. Suppose I... It'll take some time, say six months, to find out if...
TERRY MCKAY: If? If what?
NICKIE FERRANTE: Well, just suppose...
TERRY MCKAY: Now, be realistic.
NICKIE FERRANTE: All right. If I worked hard enough and long enough, say for six months, where would you be?
TERRY MCKAY: What are you trying to say, Nickie?
I just want to be worthy of asking you to marry me.
TERRY MCKAY: Nickie, that's just about the nicest... Your voice cracked.
NICKIE FERRANTE: That's because I...
TERRY MCKAY: Yes, I know. I'm going to turn in now. Do some more rolling and tossing and thinking about it. Let me tell you in the morning.
NICKIE FERRANTE: It's going to be a long night.
TERRY MCKAY: For me too.
NICKIE FERRANTE: Goodbye, Terry.
TERRY MCKAY: Goodbye, Nickie.
NICKIE FERRANTE: You know, I painted you like that, with the shawl. I wish you could have seen it. Courbet said it was one of my best. I didn't think I could ever part with it, but there was no reason to keep it any longer. I couldn't take money for it because, well, you know... So Courbet told me a young woman came into the gallery and... she liked it. She saw in it what I'd hoped you'd see, so... I told Courbet to give it to her. Because he said she didn't have any money, and not only that, she was... She was... Anyway, I told him to give it to her. Courbet said she wanted it so badly and... So I told him to give it to her. It's the Christmas season and all that. And you know me, holly in my heart.
TERRY MCKAY: Darling, don't look at me like that.
NICKIE FERRANTE: Why didn't you tell me? If it had to happen to one of us, why did it have to be you?
TERRY MCKAY: It was nobody's fault but my own. I was looking up. It was the nearest thing to heaven. You were there. Oh, darling. Don't worry, darling. If you can paint, I can walk. Anything can happen, don't you think?
NICKIE FERRANTE: Yes, darling.
