carson x mrs. hughes


-You can hold my hand. Then we’ll both go in together.
-I think I will hold your hand. It’ll make me feel a bit steady.
-You can always hold my hand if you need to feel steady.
-I don’t know how, but you managed to make that sound a little risqué.
-And if I did? We’re getting on Mr. Carson, you and I. We can afford to live a little.


“ In my eyes, she is beautiful.  I love her. I am happy and tickled and bursting with pride that she would agree to be my wife. And I want us to live as closely as two people can, for the time that remains to us on earth.”

It’s because of her grief, I’m imposing.


Mr Carson : But that’s the point. I do want to be stuck with you.

Mrs Hughes : I’m not convinced I can be hearing this right.

Mr Carson : You are, if you think I’m asking you to marry me… Well ?

Mrs Hughes : Well… You could knock me down with a feather.

Mr Carson : And you’re not offended ?

Mrs Hughes : Oh, Mr Carson, I can assure you, the very last thing in the world that I am at this moment is offended.

Mr Carson : You can take as long as you like, I won’t press you, because one thing I do know, I’m not marrying anyone else. 

Mrs Hughes : Well then.

Mr Carson : What exactly are we celebrating ?

Mrs Hughes : We are celebrating the fact that I can still get a proposal at my age. 

Mr Carson : And that’s … it ?

Mrs Hughes : Of course I’ll marry you, you old booby. I thought you’d never ask.
