Island in the Sun

The colonel seems to think.
- What do you think?
- I don't know.

Then why are you
trying to find out?

I don't know that either.

Does it make any difference,
having an aim in life?

- An aim?
- Not just floating about-

tea at 5:00, dinner at 8:00,
Tuesdays at the hairdresser's.

Having- Oh, I used to
know the word for it-

a- a cause.
That should depend a great deal
on the person, I should imagine.

You think I'm rather useless, don't you?
Parasitic- that all women of my kind are.

Oh, no, it's true
that we don't know anything-

oh, the ground rules for tennis
or a recipe for shrimp curry...

a- a little charity nursing-
but nothing very important.

I wish there were
something worthwhile...

I could learn
about people, about-

There's a great deal to learn
right here on this island...

if you really mean it.
Oh, it's beautiful.
Used to be the summerhouse
where the governors'wives did their sewing.

I told the governor
I'd like somewhere to do my writing, and, uh-

- Oh, is this what you're writing?
- Yes.

- Is it a novel?
- Sort of.

- What's it about?
- Oh, people and places.

Begins in London,
and then goes on to Hong Kong...

Cairo, Malta, the West Indies.
