  • Hello M's Gibbs
  • How do you do, Emily
  • Hello, Emily
  • Hello, Hello, Mother Gibbs How do you do, Mr. Stimsom
  • Emliy
  • Emily, don't. It's not what you think it'd be.
  • But Mother Gibbs one can go back, one can go back again into the living.
  • Yes one can. All I can say is, Emily, don't. Don't do it, Emily.
  • ...just for a moment we're happy. Let's look at one another. I can't, I can't go on. It goes so fast. We don't have time to look at one another. Do any human beings ever realize life while they live it? every, every minute?  I'm ready to go back.
  • Yes, now you know. Now you know! That's what it was to be alive...- that's the happy existence you wanted to go back to. Ignorance and blindness.
  • No...I should have listened to you. That's all human beings are! Just blind people.
  • Oh, Mr. Stimson, I should have listened to them.
  • Simon Stimson, that ain't the whole truth and you know it. Emily, look at that star. I forget its name.
  • Were you happy/
  • Look, it's clearing up. The stars are coming out.
  • Here's one of them coming.
  • Goodness! That ain't no way to behave!
  • Mother Gibbs, it's George. It's George.
  • That's funny. 'Tain't no time for one of them to be here...Goodness sakes.
  • Sh, dear. Just rest yourself.
  • George sinks to his knees, then falls full length at Emily's feet.
  • He ought to be home.
  • Mother Gibbs? They don't understand, do they?
  • Yes, Emily? No, dear. They don't understand.
