I suppose I have. I think it would be a nice thing to do. Daddy says I'll have to /eventually/.

Now sweetie, you /are/ getting older. I don't know how much you've thought about it, but you're going to have to get married eventually.

father
You're surprised? You've known each other forever. He was bound to do it sooner or later. He's such a nice boy, wouldn't you agree?

Why can't we send money? We always send money to things like this.

mother
Good thing. I wish we could send money. What an unfortunate thing.

I know. It's everywhere. But I just want a nice, traditional girl to come home to everyday. Someone who will be waiting there for me. I'll have to move out of my parents house soon and I want a girl to live with me. I can picture it now: I'll come home from work, kiss her, and make her day.

You're dumb! The third letter has to be an "E".

She keeps speedily walking out of the party in a hurry. John stands up and yells after her. She is gone before he has a chance to tell her anything.

Before Helen has a chance to answer, My Blue Heaven comes on and the girls drag her onto the dance floor to dance. Halfway through the song, Helen wanders over to where the piano player is playing and listens. The friends keep dancing. When the song ends, Helen looks up at the PIANO MAN on stage.

Chastity, you know I won't drink that. It smells disgusting, I don't know where it comes from, and it's against the law and my parents would kill me.

(to Helen)
Loosen up. You come to these things all time--what's wrong?

Father (cont'd)
Helen is at the right age to get married. We can't have her living in our house forever. She needs a respectable man like John. It will all work out.

Mr. Carleton
Yes, and we hope to see you tomorrow night at the Johnsons.

Helen obeys and cleans off the table with the maid. She makes disgusted faces as she carries the dishes to the kitchen. The mothers head into the kitchen.

Helen, won't you help Ms. O'Connor clean up?

Aw, thank you, John. It's the hot new thing--Caesar Salad.

Father sighs. The rest of the table chews on their food.

Mr. Carleton
It's not that. This is America's best-selling automobile. With the discontinuation, just imagine what will happen to the shareholders if another, inexpensive, mass-produced vehicle doesn't come along quickly!

Mother and Mrs. Carleton walk out of the kitchen, following the mi carrying pans filled with meats and vegetables. Helen sits back down. John smiles at her. The fathers continue their conversation and John listens intently.

Helen looks around the room for an excuse to flee the room. She heads toward the kitchen.

Helen heads to the radio and turns on a jazz channel. The radio blasts "The Charleston" and she dances to the music. About halfway through the song, Helen rushes to her vanity to put on her hair pins. She does her hair in a wavy bob. Just as she throws on the rest of her pearls, the doorbell RINGS. Helen runs out the door and down the stairs.

mother
This is your future we're talking about. And for God's sake, stop playing that jazz music. Now go upstairs and get all dolled up. The Carltons should be over any minute. Go on, now.

Mother pulls Helen's head toward her and gives her a dark stare.
