GEORGE:
Other pleasures...
And I've known many...
Afternoons
In warm Venetian squares,
Brief encounters,
Long siestas...
Pleasures old and new
Can't compare with you.

You amaze me!
Where did you come from?
You do things
Champagne could never do.
Crystal winters,
Crimson summers...
Other pleasures --
I would trade them all
For you.

Pleasures old and new
Can't compare with you...

Wild mimosa...
The scent of evening...
Shuttered rooms
With sunlight breaking through...
Crazy soir?es...
Lazy Sundays...
Other pleasures...
I would trade them all
For you.

Sailing off
In the night
On a silver lake...
Taking more
From this life
Than I ought to take...
Other pleasures...
I would trade them all
For you.

JENNY
Quickly!
She's here now!
Don't be an old lazybones!

GEORGE (coming to and looking at his watch)
Good Lord!
The time!
For once she's managed
To arrive ahead of schedule!

ROSE (to JENNY, producing a gift-wrapped present)
Wait till you see
What I've got for you,
Darling.

And wait till you see
What I've got for you...

ALEX
I don't believe this...

ROSE (echoing him)
I don't believe this...

GEORGE (struggling with his emotions)
Good God, I wondered what had happened to you!
Rose, you really should have let me know!

Dear boy, you must meet Jenny!

ALEX
Hello, cousin.
Nice to meet you.

JENNY
So you're the soldier?

ROSE
This is Alex.
You remember.

JENNY
Yes, of course.

ROSE (to GEORGE)
He saw my last performance.

ALEX
She really was phenomenal.

JENNY
"A truly blazing star"!

GEORGE, JENNY, & ALEX
Rose, you're a wonder!

GEORGE
All the dreams we've worked for
Have come true
