Minute 123: I’m Gonna Break that Marriage Up!


“But you got plenty,” says Al.

“I’ll need them,” says Peggy. “I’ve made up my mind.”

“Good girl,” says Al. Millie realizes that Al is missing what Peggy is saying.

“To do what?” asks Millie.

“I’m going to break that marriage up!” replies Peggy. “I can’t stand seeing Fred tied
to a woman he doesn’t love – – and who doesn’t love him. It’s horrible for him. It’s humiliating, and it’s killing his spirit. Somebody’s got to help him.”

“Are you sure he doesn’t love her?” asks Millie.

“Of course I am,” says Peggy.

“Did he tell you?” asks Millie. Peggy shakes her head.

“Did she?” asks Millie.

“No,” says Peggy.

“So you just jumped to conclusions!” shouts Al.

“He doesn’t love her. He hates her,” says Peggy. “I know it. I know it.”

“Who are you, God?” asks Al. “How did you get this power to interfere in people’s lives?”

“Is Fred in love with you?” asks Millie.

“Yes,” says Peggy.

“You’ve been seeing him?” asks Millie.
