Deleted Scenes for 4:7 The "Duel" / Morag and Greg!
Thank you again to tartangirl, who transcribed the first three scenes for the board back in 2003. They were on a PBS version that she, Karin, reported was 49 minutes long.
I added the rest later from the uncut UK version.
1. Kilwillie and Archie are in the Estate Office.
Kilwillie: Splendid news!
Archie: Is it?
Kilwillie: Absolutely! You want to sell and I want to buy. Does us both a bit of good.
Archie: Hold on, there are other interested parties.
Kilwillie: And you would put them before your father's greatest chum?
Archie: Well, I'm afraid all I care about is getting the best price.
Kilwillie: I see. Well, that isn't how Hector would have managed things.
(Lexie looks in the door)
Archie: And, I think that's a valuable lesson to us all.
Lexie: Oh, Archie, have you got a minute?
Archie: Ah, not now, no.
Lexie: It's important.
Archie: It'd better be. (to Kilwillie) I'm sorry.
Kilwillie: Oh, not a problem. Take as long as you like.
(Exit Archie and Lexie- who then run around the corner of the building and peek out.)
Lexie: Do you think he'll go for it?
Archie: Yeah, He's bound to. What man could resist?
(They see Duncan and Irene sifting through the huge pile of gravel. Lexie and Archie look mystified.)
Lexie: Probably best not to ask.
(Inside the office Kilwillie sneaks over to the desk to look inside a folder at a page titled, List of Potential Purchasers, with names and amounts.)
Kilwillie: (aloud to himself) I think the Kilwillie coffers can run for a better offer than those.
2. Irene finds Duncan in the driveway scattering the new gravel.
(Irene and Lexie have been talking at the loch. Lexie has told Irene that Duncan needs to know about her pregnancy.)
Duncan: Ah! I know what you're going to say.
Irene: I doubt it.
Duncan: You don't think I'm serious about you. Well, I've had an idea. I'd like you to meet my Auntie Liz.
Duncan: You'll really like her. The thing is trying to catch her at home. She gets out and about all over. Monday night is bingo. Every second Tuesday, folk club. Wednesdays- (he poses) self-defense.
Irene: She sounds like a busy lady.
Duncan: She is. But she can fit us in this evening. How's that for a stroke of luck?
Irene: I'm really not sure I want to come. Duncan...(she takes his hand)
Duncan: Please. It would mean a lot to me.
Duncan: Great! (running away- he calls back) I'll give her a call before she puts her name down for the dominos. (Irene looks defeated)
3. Irene is taken to Auntie's for tea.
(At Auntie Liz's, the three sit around a table literally covered with tea cakes of all kinds. These are placed on good china plates.)
Auntie Liz: It's lovely to meet you, Maureen.
Irene: (testily) Irene.
Auntie Liz: Not often he brings a lassie back for tea, is it, Duncan?
Duncan: No, Auntie.
Auntie Liz: What was the name of that last one, skinny wee thing, covered in freckles?
Duncan: Jennifer Connor.
Auntie Liz: Aye, that’s it. I had said that I had high hopes for the two of you.
Duncan: She was six, and I was seven!
Auntie Liz: (to Irene) So, well, should I be looking for a new hat?
Irene: Do you need one?
Auntie Liz: Well, if there's an event in the offing.
Auntie Liz: One that involves veils...
Irene: What, me and Duncan?
Auntie Liz: You ARE around for your tea!
Irene: This is the 21st century! We are not about to trade a lifelong commitment for a slice of jam sponge! (she looks at Duncan) ARE we?
Duncan: I just thought it would be a good idea if you two got to know each other, that's all.
Auntie Liz: I see. And here's me thinking I might be hearing the patter
a' tiny feet!
Duncan: Why, are the mice back? *
( * a note from tartangirl: "That Duncan, ya just gotta love him!" )
4. Golly at Hector's Grave.
Right before the scene with Golly and Andrew looking at gravestones, we see Golly walk into the graveyard and up to Hector's grave.
He pours some single malt into a small glass and puts it by the grave.
Golly: Here’s a wee top up for you, boss. I won’t have one myself, if you don’t mind. There ya go.
Well now, Hector, I think this could be the end of Glenbogle as we know it.
(Andrew is seen exiting the church.)
Andrew: Golly? Thought it was you.
Golly: Aye, aye. (then the rest of their scene together)
5. Irene and Duncan are in the Glenbogle kitchen.
Irene: Is she always like that?
Duncan: Well, I haven't taken anyone by before...not since...
Irene: Little Jennifer Connor, I know. She was weighing me up as potential breeding stock. It was like living in the dark ages.
Duncan: Well, that's just her way.
Irene: I wish we'd never gone.
Duncan: Its well, like I said, I just wanted to show you how much you mean to me.
Irene: I don't like to think what you do to people you don't like.
Duncan: That's my Auntie, you're talking about.
Irene: Sorry, okay. Let's just change the subject.
There's something I need to tell you.
Duncan: Okay, she lets rooms you know.
Duncan: My Auntie Liz-she lets rooms. So if things get difficult here...
we'll have someplace to live.
Irene: ( jumping up-totally frustrated ) Uhhh!
Duncan: Where ya goin?
6. Molly puts on the new engagement ring.
Molly goes up to her small bedroom desk wearing a pink bathrobe. She takes out a special cloth, and lays it on a side table. She then takes off her old wedding ring, and lays it on the cloth. She puts the ring from Lord Kilwillie on her left hand, and admires it without smiling.
7. Lexie is on the phone in the study. Archie is standing behind listening.
Lexie: Thanks, bye.
(to Archie) She's out of the country - world cruise - won't be back for another 3 months.
Archie: Well, thanks for trying. I know how much you hate asking your Mother for anything.
Lexie: Things have not been this desperate before. What are we gonna do?
Archie: I spoke to Kilwillie earlier. He said all we can do is sell some land.
Lexie: But should that be such a disaster? I mean..
Archie: (raising his voice) Of course it would be. I swore that's the one thing I would never even consider.
Lexie: Okay, okay.
Archie: Sorry, Lex, but I'm the laird. I have a responsibility to protect the future of this place...for our children...for their children.
Lexie: Wouldn't it be better to have a little less than nothing at all?
Archie: I feel like I've messed up.
Lexie: Don't talk like that. Nobody could have tried harder. (Duncan enters and sets up a ladder near them.)
We just have to get through this. Things will get better...just wait and see.
(Lexie to Duncan) How long have you been there?
Duncan: Long enough to know there's something going on.
Archie: We've got financial problems.
Duncan: Oh, is that all
Lexie: What do you mean, is that all?
Duncan: Well, we've always had them.
8. Badger and Kilwillie in the diningroom.
(Badger walks into the room and stands behind Kilwillie who is looking at one of the soldiers on the table. These are the ones he used for battle games with Hector).
(This is right after Molly catches Badger eavesdropping, and she tells him that she'll see herself out.)
Kilwillie: The workings of a woman's mind, Badger, are like a foreign country.
Badger: What country would that be, my Lord?
Kilwillie: Oh, I don't know - somewhere that's pretty
damn near impossible to get into.
Badger: It's a challenge I've long resisted* and I've no plans to start now.
Kilwillie: But don't you ever wish you had someone to grow old with?
Badger: Well, I'd rather thought we might do that together, my Lord.
( Kilwillie looks shocked.)
(* a bit of a plot indiscrepancy here! In 3:3 (The Glenbogle Three poaching episode) Mrs. Badger is mentioned.
9. Archie and Greg MacDonald square off.
(Archie is walking up the gravel drive to the Glenbogle Rose Inn. He passes the sign for the establishment.
Greg MacDonald opens the door for Archie.)
Greg: Guessed you'd be up here sooner or later. You'd better come through.
(he indicates that Archie should come into their room at the inn. Following is the scene with Archie and Greg during which Morag is doing handwork in a chair with her feet on a low stool. Only Archie's walk up the drive and entrance were clipped from this scene.)
10. Greg threatens Archie.
(Archie sees Greg and Morag MacDonald through the window as he enters the inn. Lexie is behind him. He opens the door for them.)
Greg: Proud of yourself are you, sending a woman to do your spying ( He is talking about the fact that Lexie got Morag to divulge the fact that it is she, and not Greg, who is the MacDonald. )
Archie: You can't have thought that I wouldn't find out.
Greg: I suppose you think this makes a difference.
Archie: Yes, of course it does. You aren't even a MacDonald. Which means you haven't got a leg to stand on.
Greg: Yeh, but my Morag has so she'll have to be the one to invoke the treaty.
( to Morag ) Tell him.
Morag: It's...it's what Greg wants.
( Molly comes down the hall and from a hidden place she listens to them talking inside the front door. She hears all.)
Greg: Unless, you've changed your mind about selling to me now, of course.
Archie: You got my choice.
Greg: Your choice. But don't forget I've got the law on my side, and I've got the money to see it through. Come along, Morag.
(she follows silently)
11. Archie, Lexie, Duncan, and Golly are seated at the kitchen table.
Everyone is looking glum. Irene is standing at the stove stirring a pot.
Irene: More stew, anyone?
Golly: No, not for me, No.
Archie: What's the matter with you. Why have you given up?
Duncan: What're we supposed to do?
Archie: We're not beaten yet.
Golly: You sure about that?
Archie: You have to look out for yourselves, I understand that, but I'm fighting on to the bitter end. (he gets up and heads for the door )
Lexie: Where are you goin'
Archie: To the Library. There are piles of old documents there from before, and after, the treaty. Maybe one of those will give us a way out.
(They all look doubtful.)
12. Golly and Duncan are sitting in the kitchen.
( Lexie re-enters the kitchen )
Lexie: Saving that for me? (she looks over at the stove)
Golly: It's in the pan. It should still be warm.
It's the not knowing-that's the worst.
Duncan: You should still have your cottage if they sell the estate. I’ll have nothin'. I just wish there was something we could do.
Lexie: Well, it's the same for all of us. I'd sacrifice anything to save Glenbogle. Molly's even prepared to marry Kilwillie.
13. Archie looks for a solution.
Archie is by the fireplace with papers all around him. This is just a small extra bit right before his mother comes in from Kilwillie's . You have seen that scene...it’s when Molly takes her shoes off-Archie comes out and she tries to tell him that she had a wonderful evening, but he doesn't let her put a happy face on it.
14. Archie and Lexie in the morning.
The next morning- Lexie is still in nightclothes. She comes into the room where Archie has been working on papers all night. She is holding a cup of coffee.
Lexie: ( she turns the lamp off since it is now light ) Any luck?
Archie: It's over, Lex.
Lexie: Not yet. ( hands him the coffee)
15. Badger makes a surprising offer.
Molly rides up to Kilwillie Castle on the bike with the basket in front. She is wearing her brown tweed cap and a muffler. Molly goes up to the door and Badger lets her in.
Molly: Good Morning, Badger. Is his Lordship at home?
Badger: He is indeed, Mrs. MacDonald, but before you go in may I have a word?
Molly: Of course.
Badger: I hope you won't think I'm being presumptuous, but if it's cash you require, I do have some modest savings.
Molly: Oh, really, Badger. There's no need.
Badger: There's more than 5,000 pounds. I'd only have to go to the post office.
Molly: It's a very kind offer, and I understand why you're making it, but your days as a gentleman's gentleman are far from over.
(Badger smiles broadly) Molly then has the conversation by the window with Kilwillie. She gives the ring back.
16. Golly puts on his riding gloves, and leaves his cottage driveway on the motorcycle.
17. Molly puts her ring from Hector back on.
Lexie: You did the right thing.
Molly: We're still no nearer to getting the money.
Lexie: Well, I did have one idea. (slipping the diamond wedding ring off) I couldn't do it without asking you first.
Then on to the scene in front of the antique store when Golly, Molly, and Lexie smile because they have raised enough money to pay the taxes.
A tiny additional section before the duel is offered in front of the house by Archie:
18. Archie calls Greg MacDonald on the telephone in the office.
Archie: Greg, It's Archie, MacDonald. Why don't you come over. I have a proposition for you.
(This is before the duel)
The Deleted Scenes from Episode: 4:8 The Seance
Thanks again, tartangirl, for your help in transcribing the scenes in series four!
1. Molly and Golly check out the new neighbor, Andrew.
Molly approaches Golly who is standing by the wolf enclosure looking through binoculars. There is a moving truck outside Andrew's cottage and the two are looking in that direction. This scene is right after the credits are shown.
Golly: Our new neighbor-want to look?
(Golly passes the binoculars to Molly)
Molly: What do you make of him?
Golly: I think he'll fit in here quite well.
Molly: Really. Aren't you sad to see someone else moving into your croft?
Golly: Ah, I've got my new place. Ana-way, Molly, things change.
Molly: Yes, yes, I suppose they do.
2. Golly and Archie are in Jamie's old room.
(Archie is trying to remove the radiator.)
Golly: Are you all right with that?
Archie: Yes, I've just got to move it so I can paper behind it.
Golly: Do you want me to give you a hand?
Archie: No,no. I told Lexie I'd do all the decorating by myself.
Golly: That's not decorating, son, that's plumbing. Are you sure you don't want me to help?
Archie: No, thank you. I want to prove to Lexie that I'm not completely useless when it comes to doing something practical. (Water spurts all over Archie)
Golly: Right, I think you had better go and turn the water off, then.
Archie leaves and runs into Lexie in the hallway.
Lexie: How's it going?
Lexie: Yeah, You managing all right by yourself?
Archie: Yeah, no problem. (he sees her looking at his wet shirt and trousers)
Er, a little accident.
Lexie starts to walk away, then changes her mind.
Lexie: Oh, I do have one request. Eh, could you paint "Wayne" on the door?
Lexie: Well, you get to choose the wallpaper, so I get to choose our baby's name.
Lexie: Um hm. And if it's a girl, you would cross out the "W" and put "Jayne". It'd be dead classy, it would be like Jayne with a "Y". Oh, listen, and while you're at it, could you decorate a few more rooms? I mean, why stop at one kid...I'm thinking more? 7, 8, or...
(hears a noise)
What was that? I thought I heard someone.
Archie: Maybe it was the ghost of Glenbogle!
Lexie: Forget it.
Archie: I wish I could. Duncan's aunt gets out her Ouija board and all of a sudden we're in the middle of the Blair Witch Project.
Lexie: OK, OK, there's no one there.
Archie: Thank you.
(they leave in opposite directions)
(This next scene comes after Duncan's drunken
"Red Danger" fight in the pub.)
3.Archie helps Duncan with his hang-over.
( This scene is often referred to as the "frozen peas" scene” by the UK boglies. Duncan 'comes to' stretched out on the Glenbogle kitchen table, in kilt, shirt pulled out, looking pretty bad. Archie is looking in the refrigerator.)
Duncan: Ooh. How did I get here?
Archie: How do you think? I scraped you up off the floor. (Hands Duncan a bag of frozen peas)
Duncan: I'm not hungry.
Archie: Put it on the bruise.
Duncan: Ah, right. (gasps at the coldness)
Archie: How are you feeling?
Duncan: Stupid. (said meekly)
Archie: Well, it wasn't exactly your finest hour. Anything we can do to help?
Duncan: I don't want help? want some people to show some respect.
Archie: We do that.
Archie: She does, too. She's just trying to not make things worse for you.
Duncan: She's going away with that bloke.
Archie: No, no, no, no, no, she's going to her parents. That's what she told us.
Duncan: I don't want her to go anywhere.
Archie: I know, Duncan.
Duncan: Why is she going?
Archie: Maybe she doesn't want to bring up a baby on her own. It's going to be hard enough - the kid not having a father.
4. Lexie and Archie discuss having children.
This scene follows immediately after the discussion Archie and Lexie have in the hall after the stag's head fell. Archie and Lexie walk back to the bedroom, and Lexie gets into bed.
Archie: Do you know, all this hearing things...maybe you're imagining it because you're upset.
Lexie: (sighs) Why would I be upset?
Archie: Because of what we were talking about earlier. I mean, children. Sorry, but I thought it was something we both wanted.
Lexie: Yeh, it is. (pause) Look, from as early as I can remember, I grew up with my mother telling me about all the things I stopped her from doing. I know she loved me in her own way, but, well, I knew she resented me being there almost just as much. (sighs) I want to choose when I'm ready.
5. Irene is in the kitchen, putting away dishes, and Golly quickly walks through.
Irene: Golly, the man who was looking for me...have you seen him today?
Golly: Nope, why?
Irene: Cuz I'd like to know who he is.
Golly: I thought you were leaving? (accusingly)
Irene: Even so. (said questioningly, confused as to why he is being so cross.)
Golly: Okay, I'll have a look. (said coldly)
Irene: Good, I'm coming with you.
6. Golly shows Irene the man who has been looking for her-
They talk about Duncan, and her expected baby.
(Irene and Golly are up on a rise overlooking the road below. Through binoculars they see a man getting out of the back of a beat-up station wagon.)
Golly: Yep, there he is. Do you wanna have a look?
Irene: I suppose I need to get it over with. (she looks through the binoculars)
It's not him!
Golly: And does that help?
Irene: I don't know.
(she turns to face him)
Irene: You know Duncan has asked me to stay here with him. He says he'll be the father.
Golly: What about you?
Irene: I just want what's best for the baby.
Golly: You don't sound too sure.
Irene: Well, (pause) I'd love to do that, but it just doesn't seem right somehow. Oh, I just don't know what's right anymore.
Golly: Aye. Well, you know that none of us wants to see you go.
Irene: Thanks. (sweet smile)
7. Duncan and Archie paint Jamie's room.
(Duncan is painting the ceiling in Jamie's room with a long paint roller. He's wearing his black leather jacket and kilt! Archie is working with him.)
Archie: We finish the walls, and the ceiling today, and all we have to do tomorrow is the rest of the wallpaper and the second coat of gloss.
Duncan: And the radiator and the cleaning up.
Archie: Ah, that won't take any time. This bet is as good as won.
(Duncan steps down from the ladder and backs up into a pan of yellow paint which spills all over the floor. Archie looks exasperated.)
8. Lexie counsels Irene about Duncan.
(The night the "witches" are there for dinner, Lexie goes into the kitchen to see Irene. Her words come across rather cold, and sharp, in the script, but she actually says them in a smiling, tender way.)
Lexie: How's it goin?
Irene: Another 5 minutes.
Lexie: Ah, this probably isn't the best time to ask, but, er, Duncan seems to think you'll be staying here?
Irene: I haven't made up my mind yet!
Lexie: Okay, okay, just let us know when you decide.
Irene: Maybe I should stay.
Lexie: Well, if you do, there's no going back. If you change your mind, then you'll break his heart.
(Watches Irene at the stove)
Caused a lot of trouble, hasn't it?
For something so small?
Irene: (smiles) Oh, yes, but it'll be worth it.
Lexie: Oh, I nearly forgot, somebody left this for you on the doorstep.
(Lexie puts a packet down on the table.)
Irene: Oh, thanks.
(Irene picks up the packet and opens it.)
9. Dining room toasts with the Spiritualist and Clairvoyant Society
(Right before Irene and Duncan are watching her wedding video.)
The spiritualists, Molly, Lexie, and Andrew are seated in the dining room. Lexie is on her feet at the end of the table in front of the window. She draws their attention by ringing her wine glass with a silver knife.
Lexie: Ah, can I just say a few words, although most of you will probably know what I am about to say...if your crystal balls are in good nick. (everyone laughs) Umm, I would like to apologize for Archie not being here, but you're all very welcome to Glenbogle and I'd like to propose a toast to your circle.
Liz: Oh, don't forget Duncan and Irene-we should raise a glass to them, too.
Duncan: No, Auntie Liz...It's...
Liz: To Duncan, and lovely Irene, and their wonderful, wonderful news.
(Duncan and Irene exchange glances)
Lexie: (a bit taken back but unable do anything but echo Liz' toast, she raises her glass.)
Duncan and Irene.
(they raise their glasses )
All: Duncan and Irene.
Irene: Umm, I think I'd better just check up on things in the kitchen, excuse me.
(Duncan looks very embarrassed)
10. Mrs. Stone arrives at the door of Glenbogle House.
(Right after Molly sees Andrew out, and she and Archie are talking on the stairs.)
A woman walks right in the front door, without knocking, after the spiritualist society women have gone. She is, I would guess, in her 50's and she has a determined look on her face. Since she doesn't appear anywhere outside of this scene, I will describe her. She is of medium height and has light brown, curly, shoulder length hair. The stranger is plain but pleasant looking. Lexie comes into the hall, with Auntie Liz behind her, and they come face to face with the woman.
Lexie: Can I help you? (pleasantly)
Liz: Mrs. Stone!
Mrs. Stone: I didn't get my invitation.
Liz: We didn't know where to find you.
Mrs. Stone: No, but I found you.
Lexie: Hi, I'm Lexie.
Mrs. Stone: Yes, my dear, I know. But it's your husband I am here to see.
(The scene moves to another room. Lexie, Liz and Mrs. Stone are seated around the red covered round table that Liz has used in previous scenes. Archie is in a chair nearby.)
Archie: There is a perfectly rational explanation for everything that has happened.
Mrs. Stone: Of course there is, but you don't believe it anymore than your wife does, and it's you I am here to see.
Archie: Why? I don't believe in crystal balls, or ghosts, or ghoulies, or any of the rest of it.
Mrs. Stone: Yes you do. You've seen a ghost. ( pause ) Shall I go on?
Archie: I suppose you want us to cross your palm with silver.(Mrs. Stone puts a hand out)
Mrs. Stone: Paper does better. I'm not some amateur.
(Liz nods and Lexie gives her some bills. Mrs. Stone indicates that the light should be turned out. Liz turns it off.)
Mrs. Stone: Far, far back I see a man- a fighter. He's wearing an armor.
Liz: Robert MacDonald!
Lexie: What's he doing?
Mrs. Stone: He stands at the head of a long line-a line of men? Chieftains.
(Mrs. Stone's hands are open palmed on the table. She talks as if in a trance)
Mrs. Stone: He passes his sword to the next in line and they pass it on...hand to hand...down the line?
Liz: The Lairds of the Clan.
Mrs. Stone: At the end of this line, there's an old man and a young boy standing together. (she looks at Archie)Mrs. Stone: They're looking at you.
Mrs. Stone: They're offering the sword to you. Look into the fire. You can see it as clearly as I can. You can see the end of the story.
(Archie is beginning to look scared. We can tell that he knows what Mrs. Stone is on about. Then he gets a terrible look on his face)
Lexie: Archie, what's wrong?
(there is a lightening storm outside)
Archie: Nothing. I told you this was a waste of time.
(he walks quickly out)
11. Lexie and Archie talk about their fears.
(The two are in their bedroom)
Archie: Um hmm
Lexie: Archie, did you see a ghost?
Lexie: You liar.
Archie: (big sigh) On the, ah, morning of our wedding...The one that didn't happen...I thought I saw my father. It was as though he was giving his blessing to us getting married, and I thought it was just a dream.
Lexie: And all that other stuff about the family line.
Archie: Let's go to sleep now.
Lexie: That's true isn't it? You're scared of the family name dyin' out.
Archie: It's in the back of my mind, yeah, but it's no big deal. Ever since Jamie died it's something that's always been there. Nobody's ever said it out loud but I am expected to produce an heir. It's sort of what I'm here for.
Lexie: Does that scare you?
Archie: Yep, I suppose it does.
( he looks in her eyes. She is propped up with her face right next to his )
There's something else as well. This evening at the end... I thought I could see you leaving me.
Lexie: Archie, that's not going to happen. Do you know what...I'm scared of the future.
Lexie: I'm scared of turning into my mother. I'm scared of letting you down. (sighs) Most of all-scared 'a losin' you.
Archie: Lex, I'm here. I always will be. Now, I know a lot of people who might find that pretty scary.(she smiles)
Lexie: Hmmph. (She kisses him and then strokes his face-and turns over. He looks troubled.)
12. Lexie wakes up in bed frightened.
This small scene is right after the above conversation about their fears. Lexie wakes up later in bed. There are weird noises...the camera tracks across the bed slowly. Lexie sees a shadow under the door in the lighted hallway. (She will tell Liz about it the next day in the gallery-she will say that she has seen "it" again ) This is followed by Molly out on the front grass painting the portrait of 'Useless'. ( M: much too Francis Bacon for me )
Lex looks scared but turns back over.
13. Golly and Duncan observe Archie's finished room
(Archie, Duncan, and Golly are in Jamie's old, but now bright yellow bedroom.
Golly: Well done, Archie. Should we get Lexie up here?Duncan: (turns the light switch on and off) Light's not workin'
Archie: Give me two minutes. (he runs out)
Duncan: (observing the room-he looks at Golly) Yellow!
(Golly nods back and makes a face like the color is pretty shocking.)
Liz: Oh, don't forget Duncan and Irene-we should raise a glass to them, too.
Duncan: No, Auntie Liz...It's...
Liz: To Duncan and lovely Irene and their wonderful, wonderful news.
(Duncan and Irene exchange glances)
Lexie: (a bit taken back but unable do anything but echo Liz' toast.)
(She raises her glass) Duncan and Irene.
(they raise their glasses )
All: Duncan and Irene.
Irene: Umm, I think I'd better just check up on things in the kitchen, excuse me.
(fade away on Duncan's embarrassed face)
14. No Ghost?
(Right after they bring the private detective [actor Gilbert Martin in the credits] down the stairs...he gives Irene the letter from Ian, and she exits.
On the other side of the room Irene, Molly and Lexie are standing together.)
Liz: So there's no ghost. I never made contact with Robert MacDonald. When Mrs. Stone hears about this...she'll win the election hands down. They could drum me out of the circle.
Lexie: Mrs. Stone doesn't need to know.
(Molly nods and Liz sighs)
(Then on to Irene tearfully reading the letter in her bedroom.)
The Deleted Scenes from 4:9 The Ghillie's Ball and Paul appears
(Right after the scene where Duncan is in the office looking for ammunition.)
1. Kilwillie and Andrew are putting chairs around the tables outside on the loch side of the house.
Andrew: I managed to get the bike (motorcycle) back up, thank you.
Kilwillie: Oh, good. You're a friend of the family then?
Andrew: A friend of Molly's.
Kilwillie: Oh, that's funny. I thought I knew all of Molly's friends.
Andrew: Obviously not.
Kilwillie: You're not local though are you?
Andrew: Well, I just moved into Golly's old croft.
Kilwillie: Oh really. Oh, I see. Oh, that's a quaint little place. I live at Kilwillie Castle. You might have seen it. (haughtily)
Andrew: Well, I quite like big places, too, but when I sold the ranch down under, I thought I wanted something more homely.
Kilwillie: Golly's place is certainly that.
Kilwillie: ( he groans from the exertion of placing the chairs, wipes his brow, and sits on one of the chairs ) This, er, this ranch in Australia-what are we talking about - 500, 1,000 acres?
(Kilwillie looks very surprised)
Molly: Boys! (holding up both arms she calls them to the front area to retrieve a box in the attic)
2. Lexie encourages Archie to go stalking
(After the "boys" go up in the attic, the action shifts to Archie who joins Lexie in the kitchen where the shellfish boxes have been taken. Other boxes on the table are filled with 'vege' waiting to be cleaned.)
Archie: Big Eric has been part of the estate for a long time.
Lexie: You should go. It's your duty. I'll muddle out here somehow. ( you get the idea that he's really being underfoot and she'd like him to go for that reason)
Archie: After the merry dance he led father for so long, I suppose it is my responsibility.
Lexie: And organizing the ball is mine.
Archie: And it's not as if I'm leaving you on your own. You've got mother. You've got Kilwillie.
Lexie: Exactly, I've got an army of helpers.
Archie: Well, if you're sure.
(Archie pushes by Duncan as comes into the kitchen)
Lexie: Duncan, could you grab a couple of those?
Put them in the fridge unit.
Duncan: Yeah, I was just going to get some biscuits. Irene kept them here.
(Lexie goes to the other side of the kitchen and brings a glass jar down from a high shelf)
Lexie: There you go.
(Duncan stuffs many biscuits into his sporran)
Duncan: I'm going to take some for Golly, okay?
Lexie: Ya miss her don't you?
(Duncan looks awkward and sad - also appreciative of her care)
Archie: (yelling from outside) Come on, Duncan!
( Duncan leaves quickly,
Lexie's face shows concern over Duncan)
(After Archie has forgotten to give Lexie the number for the band...)
There is one of those lovely Monarch scenic shots. It scans the River Bogle. We see Paul drinking water from both hands at the edge of the river-then he climbs up a steep hill.
4. Molly helps Merilyn settle in
(An extra part with Molly and Lexie, Merilyn, and Zara MacNaughton. Molly and Lexie help them place their 8 suitcases on the 'pull' (dumbwaiter)!
Merilyn: We do so always love coming to visit Glenbogle.
Molly: And we love having you. You mustn't leave it so long next time.
Merilyn: And I can see Archie's done well for himself with you, Lexie. Perhaps you should have a word with Zara later...pass on your secret for success.
Lexie: Well, then it wouldn't be a secret anymore, and now if you'll excuse me... I've got flowers to sort out, wine to move, and a kitchen to de-haggis.
( she glances at Molly, who looks embarrassed, and leaves.
Merilyn opens out a well-equipped make-up kit )
Merilyn: One can never have too much time to get ready for these occasions.
Molly: Ha! Clearly not!
Merilyn: And as you can see, Molly, Zara is not blessed with Lexie's natural beauty. Look, if a girl is going to catch the right chap she's got to have the right face to do it with (she's really talking to Zara behind them who flashes her a withering look as she leaves the room).
Merilyn: And if you haven't got one of your own-paint it on!
( all this while Molly is taking bits of haggis out of her hair in the full-length mirror )
Molly: I think that Zara has a very nice natural look.
Merilyn: Can I hear someone calling? (she looks around-
it's Kilwillie and Andrew who are locked in the attic )
(Molly goes over to the open window and looks out)
Molly: It's just the wind. ( she closes the window )
5. Archie and Golly share deeply
Archie, Golly, and Duncan are stalking. We hear lovely piano music playing at the beginning of a short scene that ends with soft guitar music. The wind is blowing hard. Duncan is on the left-Archie in the center and Golly on the right.
Golly: Worse things in the world than being guardian to all this, wouldn't you say?
Archie: I can't believe I ever thought I could live away from here.
(camera pans across the hills)
Golly: Och, well, sometimes in our lives we're after different things, son.
Archie: Remind me never to take all this for granted, Golly.
(Right after the above scene)
6. Molly is tending to Andrew's finger in the study.
Andrew: Caring, gentle, understanding...
You could have been a nurse, couldn't you?
Molly: Me, I doubt it.
Andrew: You have all of the qualities. Ahhh!
Andrew: I didn't feel a thing.
(they exchange an intimate glance-
Kilwillie enters and hears them talking.)
Kilwillie: Molly, I've got a jolly large splinter.
Kilwillie: Just there, It's huge.
Molly: Oh, Kilwillie, don't be such a baby!
( she gets up and leaves them )
Kilwillie: (looking at Andrew) Broken?
Andrew: Just bruised.
Kilwillie: Oh, well, no mind.
Andrew: ( teasing ) Would you like me to take a look at your splinter?
( Kilwillie moves away gingerly )
(there are some small extra stalking parts here)
(Later, Lexie sends Kilwillie down to the wine cellar and Andrew goes to see if he needs any help - to escape the advances of Merilyn.)
7. Andrew and Kilwillie moving wine crates.
(Lord Kilwillie stops to decant some red wine into a glass. )
Kilwillie: Umm..If there is a perfect wine for this evening then this is it. To a connoisseur it is a classic of it's type.
Andrew: And it's called?
Kilwillie: You wouldn't have heard of it.
Andrew: Try me.
Kilwillie: Ahh, very well. Unless you'd like to hazard a guess ( he hands him a glass of the wine- Andrew takes the glass )
Andrew: Hmm. I'm a little rusty these days.
( he sniffs the glass and says... ) French?
Fruity and Full-bodied, like my first wife.
Kilwillie: But can you give me a name? (haughtily)
Kilwillie: I meant the wine.
Andrew: Can I go for Leger Filial? (sounds like)
Kilwillie: ( looking amazed ) Ah, well, that was a lucky guess.
Andrew: '74? ( Kilwillie looks stunned ) I was quicker when I was dealing in wines. But you lose the nose, I suppose.
Kilwillie: Oh, you were in trade. I should have known.
Andrew: I've done many things in my time but I'm always ready to tackle something new.
Kilwillie: Yes, and I am fully aware of what you see as your next challenge.
Andrew: I'm not sure I understand.
Kilwillie: Molly loved Hector very much and nobody could replace him. What she needs now are friends and nothing more!
Kilwillie: Yes, really. ( Andrew pushes him up against the wine racks. Kilwillie closes his eyes tightly )
Andrew: A claret should always be turned slowly and firmly BY THE NECK.
( he emphasizes each word
as he presses Kilwillie's neck - although
not very aggressively) Shall we go?
Kilwillie: ( breathing heavily, he recovers )
(They continue moving boxes up the stairs to the ground level. Andrew reaches for the doorknob.)
Andrew: I don't believe this. ( he pretends that they are again locked in together )
Kilwillie: ( holding a wine crate ) Oh, no, not again!
Andrew: Just kidding! After you. You know if we keep meeting together in dark places, people will start to talk. ( He pats Kilwillie on the back as he goes through the door in front of Andrew.)
8. Golly, Archie, Duncan, and Paul stalking Big Eric
(Golly, Archie, Duncan and Paul walk alongside a rocky stream bed, while stalking Big Eric, after Golly has told them that Hector is Paul's father. Archie is in front with Duncan hurrying along, uneasy because he knows "the boss" is really upset about something. Golly and Paul are bringing up the rear.)
Golly: (to Paul) You seem to be at home in this kind of terrain.
Paul: Spent some time in the hills during the army training...survival stuff and all that.
Golly: What regiment?
Golly: Oh, oh, tough bunch.
Paul: Not sure if it's for me anymore. Not sure of anything since Mom died.
I just want some answers. When did he die?
Golly: Just recently. ( Paul has a deflated look on his face-as if he has come up there for nothing in the end )
Hector was a good man, Paul.
Paul: Oh, yeah, apart from walking out on me Mom and not making any attempt to contact me.
Golly: That was not his choice.
Paul: Doesn't matter now anyway.
Golly: I am sorry that you'll never meet him.
Paul: Huh. 'timing' was never my strong point.
9. Molly and Lexie discuss Zara's handiwork
(This scene is just after Zara has decorated the hall with an Asian flair.
Lexie is at the sink scrubbing dishes- Molly has come up behind Lexie.)
Molly: I was trying to make things easier for you.
Molly: Zara only wanted to help.
Molly: Is there anything I can do?
Lexie: Actually, Molly, there is, you can tell her to take down every bit of her helpful decoratin' !
( Molly acknowledges Lexie and leaves the kitchen-
Lexie looks very unhappy)
10. Andrew attempts to calm Molly in the garden
(Andrew is looking for Molly. He finds her, in the garden, clipping the large hedge furiously with the shears.)
Andrew: ( he sighs when he sees her so upset ) She'll forgive you when this is all over.
Molly: ( still clipping with loud thrusts of the clippers )
It was such a silly thing to do!
Oh, how could I be so STUPID!!!
( she waves her left arm in the air )
Andrew: ( said kindly to calm her ) Because you care for her... 'cuz you wanted to help her.
Molly: All I've caused is chaos.
Andrew: Your heart was right. Your technique was a bit...
( he waves his hand )
Molly: That just about sums me up! ( she duplicates his hand wave )
Kilwillie comes looking for Molly. He's wearing a very dapper gray sportcoat and a tie.
Kilwillie: Oh, my dear, how are you feeling? That was rotten luck that Lexie didn't like the décor. It was the candles, wasn't it? ( he pouts )
11. Archie confronts Golly about the secret he kept for Hector
(Archie is walking a bit in front of Golly, out in the hills, stalking Big Eric, and he turns to face Golly.)
Archie: You lied to me, Golly.
Golly: Now, son, please.
I just never told you the truth.
Archie: You should have.
Golly: I told you-your father made me swear.
Archie: Does Mother know?
Golly: No, I don't think so.
(Archie gets a stricken look on his face)
If I had told you, would it have changed anything? I'm sorry Archie.
(Archie looks back at Paul who is sitting on a rock)
Golly: Listen, son, none of this is his fault.
Archie: No, nor mine.
Duncan: Aye, that's him (Big Eric) at the edge of the cover now.
Golly: Okay ( he gives Duncan a warm look )
Golly: (to Archie) We can take the shot if you want to go back to the house.
Archie: No, I have to do this.(he walks away)
( Paul gets up and walks toward them )
(The next scene is when Paul asks Archie if they can talk and he is rebuffed)
12. Molly and Merilyn talk about Andrew
Molly is sitting on the bed while Merilyn is trying to decide what to wear.
Merilyn: Ah, oh, dear, No, far too demure. She giggles, and tugs at the front of her dress to expose more cleavage)
Oh, he's obviously seen a thing or two and I like worldly men. I'm surprised you've not taken a shine to him, Molly.
Merilyn: Now that you're a free agent it must have crossed your mind. Go on, admit it!
Molly: No, well, I mean...
Merilyn: Well, just don't go trying anything this evening. I've got first dibs. ( she goes back to holding up her clothing possibilities in the mirror ) Ah, huh,
Molly: ( nods )
(Merilyn makes cat-like purring sounds)
(I will begin to post the Deleted Scenes from Series Five soon)
The Deleted Scenes from 4:10 the Season Finale
There are so very many cut scenes and bits of scenes that flesh out the story for us. I played the uncut episode to see how long it ran. It was 59 minutes long. The BBC America episode runs for 45 minutes. So these take 14 minutes to play.
Lexie, Archie and Molly brush by Kilwillie who is standing there with the around the world tickets in his hands.
(Molly and Archie walk through the library and head to the stairway.)
Molly: Is he telling the truth?
Archie: There's a letter from the estate solicitors. I'm afraid there is very little doubt.
Molly: These things happen. Well, heavens knows, Hector was no saint. He made a mistake. End of Story.
Archie: Is there anything I can do?
Molly: No, Thank you. (she smiles tightly and runs up the stairs)
Archie: (to Lexie) I told him what this would do to her.
Archie: He had no right to come here.
(Molly looks at the painting she has made of Hector and runs past it.)
Archie has his hands in his pockets and is kicking dirt with his toe. He is in front of Glenbogle House. He is wearing a royal blue long sleeve tee shirt. Duncan and Golly are putting large aluminum rolls into the back of the land rover. Duncan sees Archie.
Duncan: (to Golly) Give us a minute to go.
Golly: Duncan! (said out loud to himself ) I don't think this is the right time, son.
(Duncan approaches Archie wearing his black leather jacket and kilt.)
Duncan: Archie, I'll not forget how you helped me through my personal troubles and well, I just want you to know I'm here if you need to talk things over man to man.
(Duncan follows Archie as he paces. Archie doesn't look up.)
Archie: Sorry, Dunc, what were you saying?
Duncan: It doesn't matter.
(Archie pats him on the arm and walks away. Duncan sighs and rejoins Golly at the Land Rover and they drive off.)
Lexie and Paul are walking by the waterfall.
Lexie: Well, my Dad left when I was really young so I never really knew him. We just lived off scraps and other people's memories and bits of things he left behind. I suppose it's better than nothing at all.
Paul: You an only child?
Paul: Me too, at least I thought I was...(Useless is whining)
Paul: Useless, come here, come here (he is near the edge of the cliff so Paul puts his leash on) We scan the Falls and then over to the croft where Golly is working with lumber. Lexie comes to Golly's croft with Paul.
Andrew finds Molly in the library getting a book down.
Molly: Come in.
Andrew: I hope this isn't a bad time.
Molly: Not at all. Do sit down.
Andrew: You've no shortage of bedtime reading.
Molly: If you knew how few I've actually read. They're just a silent reminder of how little I know.
Andrew: But we learn through living, don't we? I bet I've been a bit over zealous in that regard.
Molly: Bet you wouldn't change a day of it!
Andrew: Maybe the odd day. I don't know if it's my age, or maybe it's this place, but I'm ready to change, Molly. (She hands him a drink) Oh, don't change too much, you'll completely lose your mystery.
Andrew: I don't want to be a mystery. I want to be a very good neighbor, and a good friend.
Molly: Another Glenbogle casualty! People come here and lose the will to leave.
Andrew: Why leave? When everything you want is here?
You and your husband were very lucky.
Molly: My husband, yes, actually, there is something you could do for me, if you would be so kind. (later we see she means helping remove Hector's portrait. As she speaks she takes the drink out of his hand and he looks as if she has been abrupt with him.)
After the scene when Kilwillie leaves all of the pairs of shoes for Badger to polish
("I'll collect them in the morning when I bring the silver".)
Lexie is at the top of the stairway looking at the place where Hector's picture used to hang and Molly is at the bottom.
Lexie: What have you done with him?
Molly: Oh, that-it's where it belongs and before you say anything. The answer is definitely no.
Molly: Nothing to do with Hector. It...It...It was a poor painting and I've been meaning to take it down for some time.
Lexie: I thought it was a good painting.
Molly: No, it wasn't. After all, I should know. I studied at the Slade before I came here.
Lexie: You don't regret that though do you?
Molly: Heavens no-being the Lady of Glenbogle in this beautiful isolated place and all those wonderful years with Hector-of course, I don't regret it.
(her voice wavers)
Molly is pretending to read in the library from a chair in front of the window. Her glasses are down her nose, as Lexie walks in.
Lexie: How are you feeling?
Lexie: I wish you could talk to me about this.
Molly: Why? It's in the past. Live for the day.
Look forward to tomorrow.
Lexie: Yeah, but something as big as this, Molly...
Molly: Hector had a fling. There was a child. That's it.
Lexie: If you want to talk to him...
Molly: To whom?
Lexie: Paul. It's not too late.
Molly: Why on earth should I want to do that?
Paul and Golly at night around a fire in front of Golly's new croft that they are restoring.
Golly: Yeah, whatever you might think, son, no man gives up his own child without a great deal of pain.
Paul: Sounds like experience.
Golly: It's my daughter. I've seen her since.
Paul: How did that feel?
Golly: Like looking in the mirror.
She's a stranger to me, but I knew her like my own hand.
Paul: I don't believe Hector lost any sleep over me.
Golly: Oh, he did. He did. Many a time he'd knock on my door in the middle of the night and there he'd be-a bottle of malt in his hand.
Paul: What did he talk about?
Golly: What it would be like if he met you, what you looked like, how you were getting on. Caused me a few sleepless nights, too. I can tell you. Not to mention some pretty ferocious hangovers.
(Then Duncan comes over.)
We next see the portrait of Hector up in a corner of the attic with junk propped up all around it. Molly is shown, sitting on a hassock, in the middle of her bedroom. She is in front of the cold, unlit fireplace. Molly is deep in thought and looks quite forlorn. The camera moves in for a close up of her face.
There is a scene after Archie runs over to Golly's croft because he finds out that Golly has allowed Paul to stay there. Kilwillie comes into the driveway, standing up like an army general, in a jeep that is driven by one of his men. Then right after he has said, "consider our two great and ancient houses in dispute." He goes back to his open jeep with Badger and the men and, standing up in the vehicle, he says:
Kilwillie: Badger, on to Watch!! Round the Clock!
Badger: You will be taking part, your Lordship?
Kilwillie: I'll be at headquarters. Drive on! (The jeep departs to battle music with drums)
There is an important scene right before Molly runs up to Golly to confront him about the secret that he has kept.
Kilwillie walks down behind Andrew who is fishing in a stream.
Kilwillie: Oh, Molly said I'd find you here.
Andrew: Ah, you've spoken to her. (he lets his line out)
I'll miss this place, Kilwillie. Never thought I'd feel that quite so strongly.
Kilwillie: As I shall miss Molly and ditto.
Andrew: Ah, my dear chap. I'm so sorry.
Kilwillie: She is very dear to me and I want you to take extremely good care of her.
Andrew: Of course.
Kilwillie: I'll be all right. I have my business interests to concentrate on. Expansion is in the air. Plenty to keep a chap occupied.
Anyway, it doesn't seem that our newlyweds will need these for a while.
(he takes out the tour tickets and hands them to Andrew)
Andrew: Oh, Kilwillie, I couldn't.
Kilwillie: Perhaps a break will give Molly time to reflect on what she's left behind. Hopefully come back to Glenbogle. Please take them.
Andrew: (taking the tickets) I'll keep her safe and do all I can to bring her back.
Kilwillie: Well, duty calls. I've got Golly to deal with. (they both smile)
Molly and Andrew stand looking out by the library window seat.
Molly: Oh, Andrew, you shouldn't have. (looking at the tickets)
Andrew: Well, actually, Molly (she doesn't allow time for him to get the words out)
Molly: Round the world!
Andrew: Any route. In fact...
Molly: First Class!
Andrew: Unlimited stop over-no time limits.
I got them from...
Molly: Oh, this is so generous. I really shall have to leave Glenbogle.
Andrew: As long as that's what you truly want.
Molly: Yes, yes it is.
Archie and Lexie are in the kitchen.
Lexie: This water business is a farce, He's completely out of control.
Archie: Kilwillie is entitled to protect what's his. Anyway, he didn't start it, Paul did.
Lexie: Paul again, per usual. (Molly enters) Give him a break, Arch.
Archie: He's upset everyone, he's upset mother.
Molly: You can't blame him, it's not his fault.
Lexie (to Archie) Where are you going?
Archie: Something I have to do.
Lexie: Send Duncan.
Archie: I can't (he leaves)
Molly: (to Lexie) I think he was finally beginning to believe he could do it, you know...be the laird.
Lexie: Don't go. Please.
Kilwillie holding his plaid cap addresses Badger, and two workmen.
Kilwillie: Throughout history there have been the romantics, the rainbow chasers, the dreamers of impossible dreams, the hard-headed men of commerce. Commerce, that wanton bride, with whom I, Kilwillie, today re-plight my troth.
Badger: Would there be a point to this, your Lordship? My feet are killing me.
Kilwillie: (irritated) The point, Badger, is this: No more Mr. Nice guy. You men will build around my stream, a fortification of ozimandian proportions proclaiming down the generations,
"look on Kilwillie's works-see mighty, and despair!
Badger: No more Mr. Nice Guy. There's a blow.
Duncan, Golly, and Paul are on their stomachs and, through binoculars, Golly is watching Kilwillie and his men bring fencing in.
Golly: Kilwillie has taken leave of his senses.
Paul: Well, we haven't finished yet. You can kiss goodbye to your water.
Golly: That's okay. I can deal with it. You don't have to get involved.
Paul: Since I'm here, it's the least I can do.
Duncan: Yeah, and I have a plan.
Golly: Good, Duncan. (looks amused)
Duncan: I'll create a diversion-lead these three a merry chase through the woods and you two take down the fence.
Golly: They'll just put it up again.
Paul: Yes, but sometimes you have to show the enemy you can be as bloody minded as they are-drag them to the negotiating table, right, Duncan?
Duncan: That was my thinking, exactly.
Golly: Okay, Duncan. Let's go with it.
(Golly and Paul smile at each other. Paul winks. Duncan crawls on his belly, through the brush, and right up to the feet of the biggest workman, Bob.)
Bob: Alright Duncan! (grabs him up to a standing position and the two men drag him away protesting.
Duncan: Come on, lads. I haven't even started yet.
(Golly and Paul are watching everything)
Golly: That will do his self-confidence a power of good.
Paul: Why doesn't Archie just say something like
"Well done, Duncan?"
Golly: Archie's got a failing in that sometimes he doesn't say enough.
Paul: Tell me about that. Anyway, what now?
Golly: Well, we've got a diversion-let's get on with the job.
(they next tempt Badger with Golly's venison and potatoes in red wine, mustard and wild thyme sauce. )
There is a long shot of the bridge from the side that is extra footage
when the two water dispute factions meet on the bridge and Lexie comes to "sort them out".
A tiny scene before Paul and Archie work together on the croft repairs.
(Golly hands a pick-axe to Kilwillie just outside his croft.)
Golly: I'm grateful, Lord Kilwillie, with privilege.
Kilwillie: When you cut your dram, Golly, you'll share your pleasure with the royal family and I know who deserves it more!
They do, of course, but they're paying two quid a bally liter! (he opens the water pipe to Golly's property and when the water rushes through the men cheer.)
A tiny snip before a scene at Golly's croft
Worker: Put your back into it, lads. Lord Kilwillie's orders!
Badger: He'll be back at headquarters after food.
Duncan: (to Golly while cutting logs) I messed up didn't I?
Good old Dunc, can't even create a diversion.
(Archie then pulls up in the wildlife center truck with Big Eric's mount in the back.)
17. Molly and Andrew are sitting on a bench at Golly's croft.
Molly: Just because I'm not going, it doesn't stop you.
Andrew: If it's all the same with you I think I'll stay. There's nowhere I'd rather be.
Molly: But what about the tickets?
Andrew: I'll return them from whence they came.
Molly: But will they take them back?
Andrew: Actually, Molly, they came from Kilwillie. He wanted to know you'd be okay.
Molly: Oh, You! (she stands up) Rascal! And you let me think they were from you.
Andrew: No, I...
(Kilwillie is looking glum. Molly runs up to him and throws her pink scarf around his neck to draw him forward.)
Molly: Kilwillie, Kilwillie! That was one of the most generous, unselfish acts I could possibly imagine. I shall treasure it always as I treasure your friendship.
Kilwillie: And I yours ( he leans back from her ) Not a word, though, I wouldn't want to be thought of as a soft touch. (at first Andrew is standing in the background watching but then he walks away)
Right after this exchange, Golly walks over to Molly standing by his croft.
Golly: You shouldn't be drinking beer, young lady?
Molly: And why is that?
Golly: because you know what it does to you...
Molly: You, Golly, know far too much about me.
Golly: Listen, Molly, I really am sorry I kept it from you.
(Molly smiles as if to say...water over the bridge and I won't hold it against you.)
Molly: ( to Paul) So you'll be staying for awhile...and he tells her that he's going back to his regiment.
