Peggy drives away from the Grandview Arms Apartments.

Fred arrives at Apartment 2-J. He rings the door buzzer.

Inside the apartment, Marie Derry sleeps in a fold-out bed. She awakens to the loud buzzer.

“Alright! Alright!” she yells, putting on a robe. She unlocks the door, saying, “Hey, what’s the big id-” when she suddenly realizes the man in the doorway is her husband.

“Freddy!” says Marie.  They embrace.

“Hiya, babe!” says Fred.

“Freddy, darling! Why didn’t you let me know?” says Marie. “You didn’t give me a chance to fix my face, or anything!”

“You look alright, babe!” replies Fred.

“Oh Freddie, darling, I’m so excited!” says Marie. “I can’t believe it’s you! Come on in, honey, where I can look at you!”  She pulls Fred into the apartment and stares at his uniform. “Oh, you’re marvelous!” says Marie. “All those ribbons! You gotta tell me what they all mean — but not now!” She hugs Fred.

Fred laughs, and hugs her back.

“Let me look at you,” says Marie.
