(ROADSHOW SCENE NO. 9)
What's the difference?
Cho-Jen says that in a Chinese wedding there have to be
many ceremonies between the families. It's like the grafting
together of two fruit trees.
HOLMAN (not getting it)
He says that without families Frenchy and Maily are like two
loose twigs. You can't graft one to another.
Holman looks expressionlessly at Shirley.
Now that's really somethin'.
I know, but it's how they feel.
Two loose twigs.
Isn't there anybody like a Chinese Justice of the Peace
who'll just say the words and take the two dollars?
I'm afraid not.
How are things on the ship?
I'm gonna be transferred.
Soon's they can get another guy up here from Hankow.
Be a while yet.
Where will you be going?
Back to the Fleet.
I wish they'd transfer you to China Light so you could
get our machines working.
You're goin' back?
We're almost sure. When the appeal is heard...
Do you know Changsha well?
Could you show me some of it?
