Duchesse de Praslin: Theo, last night I poured my heart out to you in a letter. I crept to your doorway which I am foridden to enter and stooped in humility and pushed it under the seal!
Duc de Praslin: I received it, Frances.
Duchesse de Praslin: But look! You didn't even open it! Oh Theo, do you suppose this empty pretense is what I hoped for?Lastnight I begged for you to come to me! I hoped we might start this journey today united as we once were! Theo, Theo! Have you completely forgotten the life we once shared together?
Duc de Praslin: If you're unhappy Frances, I am truly sorry, but I swear I never intended you a minute's pain.
Duchesse de Praslin: Oh no! You only say that! In reality you delight in torturing me! As one day heaven willing, I will torture you!
Duchesse de Praslin: Even if she goes to the ends of the earth, my hatred will follow her!
Duchesse de Praslin: Don't leave me, Theo!
Duc de Praslin: I'm late in Paris.
Duchesse de Praslin: But... I must talk to you! I never see you!
Duc de Praslin: The king expects me.

Duc de Praslin: Oh really Frances...
Duchesse de Praslin: It must be aversion you feel since you always avoid me, never giving me a moment's thought or attention!
Duc de Praslin: I have no wish to avoid you Frances. I would talk to you by the hour if we could do so with calmness and sanity, but it always ends the same. -He begins walking out.
Duchesse de Praslin: Wait! Theo! Wait! Oh how cruel you are my darling! Take the children! Take them! I care nothing about them, about anyone but you! Theo! If I promise never again to torment you with my anger, with my unreasoning mistrust... Theo!
Duc de Praslin: You don't know what you're saying.
Duchesse de Praslin: Theo! Theo! Come back! Theo I beg you! Oh, Theo come back! -She sees he is already gone and becomes hysteric: I hate you! I loathe you! You're wicked! Wicked! Wicked!
