KATE (thoughtfully). You’re very clever, Dennis.
DENNIS (cheerfully). Four years’ study of the Turkish character.
KATE. But how do you know I’m not judging you all the time?
DENNIS. Of course you are. But there’s all the difference in the world between judging a stranger like me, and judging the man you thought you were in love with.
KATE. You are a stranger to me.
DENNIS. I know. That’s why I said good-bye to the girl who had been with me these last four years, the girl I had married. Well, I’ve said good-bye to her. You’re not my wife any longer, Kate; but if you don’t mind pretending that I’m not your husband, and just give me a chance of making love to you–well, that’s all I want.
KATE. You’re very generous, Dennis.
DENNIS. No, I’m not. I’m very much in love; and for a man very much in love I’m being rather less of a silly ass than usual. Why should you love me? You fell in love with my uniform at the beginning of the war.
