Leave Her to Heaven

There must be loose bricks
in the chimney.

I noticed it wasn't drawing very well.
Did you hear me, darling?
What happened tonight?
Since Ruth and your mother arrived
you've been acting like a shrew.

At the landing you were cold,
at dinner, aloof.

- After dinner you were beastly.
- I didn't expect guests.

- I thought you'd be pleased.
- Don't let's quarrel, Richard.

And Danny adores you.
You hurt him. Why?

- I was upset.
- You were insulting to your mother...

...and mean to Thorne,
treated him like a servant.

- Isn't he?
- Certainly not!

He's a friend,
one of my dearest friends.

Is Ruth one of your
dearest friends too?

What's eating you?
Ruth is your sister.

Ruth is not my sister. All night long,
you devoted yourself to her!

Well, somebody had
to make her welcome.

Maybe you're in love with her.
You're in a rotten mood, Ellen.
- Maybe that's why you invited her.
- Do you want her to hear you?

You can't draw a breath in this room
without being heard all over the house.

Let's change the name from
Back of the Moon to Goldfish Manor.

What's happened to you?
You're whipping yourself
into a fit of hysterics.

Oh, no, I mustn't do that.
It might disturb Mother and Ruth
or wake up Danny!

Ellen, what's got into you?
I don't know.
I don't know.
Oh, darling, forgive me.
I'm sorry.
