Capt. Gregg: That’s a pretty rig you have on.
Mrs. Muir: Oh, thank you.
Capt. Gregg: Much better than smothering yourself in all that black crepe.
Mrs. Muir: I happen to have been wearing mourning for my husband.
Capt. Gregg: Whom you didn’t love.
Mrs. Muir: How dare you say that!?
Capt. Gregg: Because it’s true. You were fond of him perhaps, but you didn’t love him.
Mrs. Muir: I suppose you’re jealous because no one put on mourning for you.
Capt. Gregg: That shows how little you know about it.
Mrs. Muir: Some poor, misguided female no doubt.
Capt. Gregg: Three poor, misguided females to be exact.
Mrs. Muir: I should… I should think you’d be ashamed of it instead of boasting about it!
Capt. Gregg: Why? They misguided themselves. I never raised a finger to help them.
