: Are you one of the Vales of Boston? Charlotte
: One of the lesser ones.
: Is it Miss, or Mrs.? Charlotte
: It's Aunt.
: [to Jerry
] Do you like me? Jerry
: [looking at Charlotte
] I love you.
: Thanks to you. Oh, so many, many thanks to you. Jerry
: For what? Charlotte Vale
: Oh, for walking my legs off sight-seeing, and for lunch and for shopping and, for a few moments today when I actually felt alive.
: If I were free, there would be only one thing I'd want to do - prove you're not immune to happiness. Would you want me to prove it, Charlotte? Tell me you would. Then I'll go. Why, darling, you are crying. Charlotte
: I'm such a fool, such an old fool. These are only tears of gratitude - an old maid's gratitude for the crumbs offered. Jerry
: Don't talk like that. Charlotte
: You see, no one ever called me "darling" before.
: Jerry, Dr. Jaquith knows about us. When he said I could take Tina, he said "You're on probation." Do you know what that means? It means that I'm on probation because of you and me. He allowed this visit as a test. If I can't stand such a test, I'll lose Tina and we'll lose each other. Jerry, please help me. Jerry
: Shall we just have a cigarette on it? Charlotte
: Yes. Jerry
: May I sometimes come here? Charlotte
: Whenever you like. It's your home, too. There are people here who love you. Jerry
: And look at you and Tina, and share with you peace and contentment. Charlotte
: Of course. And just think, it won't be for this time only. That is, if you will help me keep what we have. If we both try hard to protect that little strip of territory that's ours. We can talk about your child... Jerry
: *Our* child. Charlotte
: Thank you. Jerry
: And will you be happy, Charlotte? Charlotte
: Oh, Jerry, don't let's ask for the moon. We have the stars.
