They don't make them like this anymore.

It's no use.
You and l.
I'm being dishonest to both of us.
and utterly unfair to you.
When two people talk of marriage...

No, don't.
Don't say another word, please.
You see, there are other things
I've been thinking of.
Fond as I am of you, I really don't
think you're the right man for me.
You're much too independent.
And I need someone
who needs me desperately...
or at least needs
my money desperately.
I've enjoyed every moment we've had
together and I do thank you for that.
Now, if you'll forgive me.
I'll go inside,
pack my little bags--
and return to Vienna
where I belong.
