MARY
Mr. Arnold! Mr. Arnold!

Teddy spies Mary wading in the water in her new
dress, a bottle of whiskey in one hand.

TEDDY
Mary! You're getting all wet.

MARY
That's the idea. Jump in! It's grand!

Teddy kicks off his shoes and hesitantly pulls off
his tie.

MARY
Just jump in!

Teddy jumps in without undressing and joins in
the fun. His band strips off his clothes and uses
them for keep-away.

JACK
Why do you have to louse up everything?

MARY
Who? Teddy? I have plenty of men, Mister!

JACK
You have ten married clowns who pop over for a
quick one. That one pays your bills.

Mary slaps him.

MARY
I'm your mother, God dammit!

Jack stares her down.

JACK
That's right, Mary. I sometimes forget.
