You’re a wonderful dancer… and I can tell a lot about a boy by dancing with him. Some boys, even though they’re very smart, or very successful in some other way, when they take a girl in their arms to dance, they’re sort of awkward and a girl feels sort of uncomfortable. But when you took me in your arms — to dance — I had the most relaxed feeling, that you knew what you were doing, and I could follow every step of the way. You mustn’t pay any attention to Miss Sydney. Women like her make me mad at the whole female sex. You’re young, and — you’re very entertaining, I mean — you say all sorts of witty things, and I just love listening to you talk. And you’re strong, and — you’re very good-looking. I bet Miss Sydney thought so, too, or she wouldn’t have said those things.
