Stop it you fools. Stop it I said. I'm mad, good and mad.... I'm mad and who wouldn't be. You, Dunson pretendin' you're gonna kill him. Why it's the last thing in the world you—Stay still. I'm mad, I told you. And you Matthew Garth, gettin' your face all beat up and all bloody. You oughta see, you oughta see how silly you look, like something the cat dragged—. Stay still. What a fool I've been. Expectin' trouble for days, when anybody with half a mind would know you two love each other.
