Oh ! Oh, how awkward of me.
What a stupid thing to do.
Oh, I’m sorry. Please don’t bother, it doesn’t really matter.
Leave that, leave that. Go and lay another place at my table.
Mademoiselle will have lunch with me.
Oh, but I… I couldn’t possibly !
Why not ?
Please don’t be polite.
I… it’s very kind of you, but I’ll be alright if they just change the cloth.
I wasn’t being polite.
I should have asked you to have lunch with me even if you hadn’t upset the vase so clumsily.
We needn’t talk to each other if we don’t feel like it.
Thank you very much.
Oh, I- I’ll just ha- have some- some scrambled eggs.
What’s happened to your friend ?
Oh, she’s ill in bed with a cold.
I’m sorry I was so rude to you yesterday.
The only excuse I can offer is that
I’ve become boorish through living alone.
You weren’t really.
You simply wanted be alone, and…
Tell me, is Mrs. Van Hopper a friend of yours or just a relation ?
No, she’s my employer.
I’m what is known as a paid companion.
Ha, I didn’t know companionship could be bought.
I looked up the word “companion” in the dictionary once.
It said “a friend of the bosom.”
I don’t envy you the privilege.
Oh, she’s very kind, really, and I have to earn my living.
Haven’t you any family ?
No. My- my mother died years and years ago, and… then there was only my father, and… and he died last summer. and then I took this job.
How rotten for you.
Yes, it was rather, because, you see, we got on so well together.
You and your father ?
Yes, he was a lovely person.
What was he ?
Ah, was he a good one ?
Well, I thought so, but people didn’t understand him.
Yes, that’s often the trouble.
He… he painted trees.
At… at least it was one tree.
You mean, he painted the same tree over and over again ?
Yes, you see, he had a theory that…
If you should find one perfect thing, or place, or person, you should stick to it.
Do you think that’s very silly ?
Not at all, I’m a firm believer in that myself.
And what did you find to do with yourself
while he was… painting his tree ?
Well, I sat with him, and I sketched a little. I don’t do it very well though.
Are you going sketching this afternoon ?
Oh, I haven’t made up mind.
I’ll drive you somewhere in the car.
Oh, no, please… I didn’t mean…
Oh, nonsense ! Finish up that mess and we’ll get along.
It’s very kind of you, but I’m not very hungry.
Oh, come on, eat it up like a good girl.
