Start: Anne: No, I’m expecting her any minute. I know. I hope things will work out this time. Yes. You can’t imagine how… difficult it is sometimes. The other day, he didn’t even recognize me. I know. I know. Lucky you were there. Yes. Yes. No, I can’t see any other solution. Ah, there’s the bell. Yes. Must be her. Yes. I… I’ll say goodbye. All right. Lots of love. Me too. Me too.

End: Laura: When you said he had his ways, you weren’t kidding.
Anne: No… I’m very sorry.
Laura: Don’t be. That sort of reaction is quite normal.
Anne: No, I’m very sorry.
Laura. It’ll all turn out fine. I’m certain of it. Don’t worry. It’ll all turn out fine.
Anne: You think so?
