“I look terrible!” says Millie, breathlessly.
“Who says so?” laughs Al.
“It isn’t fair of you to bust in on us like this!” says Millie.
“I phoned you from Portland,” says Al.
“Yes, but you said you wouldn’t be home for a-” begins Millie.
“We were lucky,” says Al. “We got a plane to Wellbourne, and I thought we were gonna get stuck there, but we came right through.”
Millie clutches at Al’s shoulders. “Al,” says Millie, “Are you all right?”
Al says “Sure,” and nods. “Are you alright?” he asks.
“Of course I am!” laughs Millie. They kiss and embrace again.
Peggy looks on, smiling.
Millie takes off Al’s cap. “Let me look at you!” says Millie.
“Aw, don’t look now – I need a bath and a shave!” says Al. Millie and Al continue to stare at each other.
“If you don’t mind, Mom,” says Peggy, moving in to hug Al.
“Dad, darling,” says Peggy, kissing Al.
Millie looks at Peggy, “I’d guess I’d better call the – ” Millie begins to say.
