  • Warren is offended by Bernice's apparently judgmental attitude towards Jim and Ethel.
  • At the next dance, Warren can't believe his eyes – Bernice is suddenly besieged by tons of partners.
  • Warren notices that Bernice is actually pretty.
  • G. Reece Stoddard and Warren collide, and the latter is shocked to see G. Reece make a beeline for Bernice.

  • Warren picks Bernice up for the bridge party, just after Marjorie confronts her about him.
  • When Marjorie questions Bernice, Warren regards her questioningly.
