"No, Laura, I can’t. As I was just explaining, I’ve—got strings on me. Laura, I’ve—been going steady! I go out all the time with a girl named Betty. She’s a home-girl like you, and Catholic, and Irish, and in a great many ways we—get along fine. I met her last summer on a moonlight boat trip up the river to Alton, on the Majestic. Well—right away from the start it was—love!"
[Legend: Love!] (7.268, Jim, Scene Seven stage directions).
Although Jim claims to be in love with Betty, his description that they ‘get along fine’ hardly holds a candle to the emotions for Laura that he described.
