ACT 2

Dialogue

RITA:
Hasn't he told you about the brigands?

DOLLY:
The brigands! No! Oh! do -

GRIGG:
My dear, I have waited for this moment (aside) with terror.

Enter ANNA from Inn.

RITA:
We'll have chocolate out here, and you shall know the whole story.

ANNA:
This way to Madame's apartment.

DOLLY:
I'll be with you in less than five minutes. I long to hear this mystery about the brigands.

Exit DOLLY into Posada, R.H. GRIGG, agitated, brings RITA and VASQUEZ down C.

RITA & VASQUEZ:
What's the matter?

GRIGG:
Everything's the matter. It's a question of "how to be happy though married" - very much married! You remember what happened in the mountains?

VASQUEZ:
Yes. You were compelled to marry -

RITA:
"The second Mrs." -

GRIGG:
Hush! I haven't dared to breathe it. I'll explain.
