Angelina Plucking up courage. Is she fair? Reginald Rapturously. Fair? She is so fair that she dazzles and blinds her slaves! Angelina Does she know you love her? Reginald Can she be ignorant, when love is writ large in every feature? Angelina And yet she does n't love you? Reginald Love me? Impossible! Angelina Then she must be a horrid thing! With air of wisdom. Men were made to love women, and women were made to love men, and if they pretend they don't--why, they 're--they 're--Reginald I 'm sure of it. If I thought there was hope--Angelina Why don't you ask her? Reginald I dare not. Angelina What's her name? I 'll ask her for you. Reginald You? Angel--her name is Angelina Warring! Angelina Overcome. Me? I'm the angel--Oh, Mr. Reginald--Reginald At her feet. Ah--I know I am not worthy to sit at your feet, Angelina--but love makes me bold.

Billy Indignantly. Puffing--your grandmother! Joan We 'd better go more
