Act 3 Hobsons Choice

Storyboard Text

  • Oh, aye. That's it. That the generous warmth of the sentiments so cordially expressed by Mr Beenstock and so enthusiastically seconded by - no, I've gotten that wrong road round - expressed by Mr Prosser and seconded by Mr Beenstock - will never be forgotten by either my life partner or self -and - I'd like to drink this toast to you in my own house. Our guests, and may they all be married soon themselves
  • Our guests.
  • He's afraid to be alone with he. That's what it is. He's shy of his wife.
  • That's a fact. I've not been married before, you see. I've not been left alone with her, either. Up to now she's been coming round to where I lodged at Tubby Wadlow's to give me my lessons. It's different now, and I freely own I'm feeling awkward-like. I'd be deeply obliged if you would stay on a bit to help to - thaw the ice for me,
  • Aye. But wedding cake's a question of heart. There'd be no bride cakes made at all if we thought first about our heads. I'm quite aware it's foolishness, but I've wish to see my father sitting at my table eating my wedding cake on my wedding-day.
  • It's a very serious thing I came about, Maggie.
  • Nay, it's not. You've ate my wedding cake and you've shook my hand. We're friends, I hope, and I were nobbut meditating like a friend. I always think it's best to look on the worst side of things first, then whatever chances can't be worse than you looked for. There's St Philip's now. I don't suppose you'll go on being vicar's warden after this to do, and it brought you a powerful lot of customers from the church, did that.
  • To hear you talk it sounds like pleasure to you.
  • That is in the nature of an admission, Mr Hobson. Our flour bags saved your legs from fracture and I am therefore inclined to add to the sum I have stated a reasonable estimate of the doctor's bill we have saved you by protecting your legs with our bags.
  • One thousand pounds for tumbling down a cellar! Why, I might have broken my leg.
  • Now you've heard what I've said of you tonight. In twenty years you're going to be thought more of than either of your brothers-in-law.
  • I heard you say it, Maggie
