KIRKLAND: Colleen needs to talk with you, Nora. If you stay we could go up to my house tomorrow. I want her to see how light and airy it is up on the hill. I’ve got to get her out of her father’s house. There’s nothing but bad dreams there and she keeps sleeping. If you stay the night… Look, (beat) tomorrow I’ll pack us a picnic lunch. Salmon and cucumber sandwiches, a bottle of Chablis, some hard-boiled eggs, we’ll roll them in salt, eat, walk the property, all 60 acres. It will do you good. And then we’ll have tea in the house. You’ve never seen it. There’s a cottage on the land. I’d love for you to sit in it. Look out the windows. The view will fill you up. You need filling up. You might even want to move into the cottage. Colleen would love that. Look, she loves you. She adores talking, almost better than sex…..
