    • Leo: You're not contented, delighted, joyful? Lena: Leo, cows are contented. Babies, old folks in second childhood are delighted. As for joyful, look how I laugh ironing your shirts. Leo: Next month we'll take off, get away. Lena: Next week you'll be asking me what makes my heart beat all night. Who knows? Or what's marriage. Don't ask. Eat, sleep, breathe, Leo.

    • Lena: You should never have made quick tings go slow and stay around. And you brought faraway places to our backward where they don't belong. Where they just tell you, you'll never travel, Lena Affman. Paris you'll never see, Rome you'll never visit. But I always knew that, Leo, so why tell me? Make do. Make do.
