Leave Her to Heaven

...my husband will be busy
a good deal of the time writing...

...and with nobody else...
- Isn't somebody there?

- Somebody by the name of Thorne?
- Yes, but he's leaving, and so it'll be...

I assure you, I don't want
to shirk any responsibility.

I'm thinking only of Danny, and l...
No, that isn't true.
I'm thinking a little about myself too.
I know you'll understand, Dr. Mason.
I gave up my honeymoon
to come here...

...so my husband could be
with his brother.

But he's been working,
and the burden's been on me.

I've spent hours here every day.
I was glad to do it.
It was no sacrifice at all.

I love Danny as much as he does...
...and I'm just as happy as he is
that Danny's doing so well.

But after all, he's a cripple.
I'm sorry.
I didn't mean to say that.
I'm sure you didn't.
I didn't mean it.
Of course not.
I'm afraid I haven't been
too well myself lately.

Mrs. Harland,
what do you want me to do?

I want you to tell my husband it would
be better for Danny to stay here.

But that isn't true. It's much better
for him to go to Back of the Moon.

But it could do no harm for him
to stay here or go back to school.

If you'll tell my husband...
- Why don't you tell him?
- Because coming from you...

- Richard.
- Hello, doctor.

Oh, Richard, I've got
such wonderful news.

Dr. Mason just consented to let Danny
come with us to Back of the Moon.

Oh, no, darling, please.
Let me.
I want to be the first to tell him.
And this is Leick Thorne.
Yes. It's for you.
Oh, golly, Ellen!
We're going to Back of the Moon.
Yes, Ellen.
