Island in the Sun

He's been through enough.
- That's why I need your help.
- My help?

You care about appearances,
what people will say.

Thank you.
Of course, you know that
you've behaved stupidly.

You have behaved like a peasant girl
in the cane fields.

- I suppose that's neither here nor there.

It's the future that matters.
May I have another match?

You might at least strike it.
You're engaged.
You can get married in a hurry.

You've not quarreled with him?
He says he wants to marry me
when he goes back to England.

- I'm not marrying Euan.
- Why not? You're insane.

- You are still in love with him?
- Yes.

Then what on earth is there
to stop your marrying?

I've told you the reason.
Don't be ridiculous.
The English Peerage isn't that sacred.

Think of Euan.
Think of the jokes there'd be made about it.

You might have thought of that
two months ago.

I didn't know then about
my Jamaican grandmother.

- Is that the only reason why
you're refusing to marry him?
- It is.

If you had the chance,
if things were different-

- No. They're not different.
- I know. I know. But supposing they were?

Would you give anything
to marry him?

Very well.
I owe you this.
You need have no qualms
about marrying Euan.

There isn't a drop of African blood
in your veins. My husband isn't your father.

- Isn't?
- No.
