FITZSIMMONS.  [Who, all the time, watching her transformation, has
been growing bashful, now handing her the cigarette case.]  Here's
the cigarette case.  You may k-k-keep it.

MAUD.  [Looking at him, hesitates, then takes it.]  I thank you--
er--Bob.  I shall treasure it all my life.  [He is very
embarrassed.]  Why, I do believe you're bashful.  What is the
matter?

FITZSIMMONS.  [Stammering.]  Why--I--you-- You are a girl--and--a-
-a--deuced pretty one.

MAUD.  [Taking his arm, ready to start for door.]  But you knew it
all along.

FITZSIMMONS.  But it's somehow different now when you've got your
girl's clothes on.

MAUD.  But you weren't a bit bashful--or nice, when--you--you--
[Blurting it out.]  Were so anxious about birth marks.

[They start to make exit.]
