Mr. Bunion: Gracious! Can't a man sit a while without being disturbed by some confounded wail? Oh, eh, its a woman. Well! I'll have to, ah--
/
Woman: Oh! Why must I suffer so. Why must I fairly wallow in anguish? Oh! Save me!
Mr. Bunion: Why, Ah! Madame. What is the trouble?
/
Woman: I'm in love! Were you ever in love? Tell me! Were you ever in love. Tell me!
Mr. Bunion: Well, I am a married man, madame!
/
Woman: Married! Oh! To think of it! Oh! I couldn't marry! No! No! I will not! I never could marry! I only could love I love to love! I love to love!

/
Woman: You are a cruel hard hearted brute! You do not, you never have loved. You are not human!
Mr. Bunion: Did you ever hate? I hate. I hate everything.
/
Woman: This world is full of love. But it is so cruel! It will not! It does not love. I am dying slowly of love.
Mr. Bunion: Great Scott! Give me this old valise! I am glad it is my only burden!
