The Marriage Circle

1  
A few days - and a 
few nights - in Vienna,
still the city of laughter
 and light romance.

2
The day starts late, but
gloriously, in the home 
of Prof. Josef Stock.

3
"Keep on with your
cruelty - and some
day I'll leave you!"

4
"That's just what you want
- but you'll not get rid 
    of me so easily."

5
"I'm engaged and waiting
  for my passenger."

6
"If you're in a hurry, let
  me take you part of 
       the way."

7
"Oh, sure - you look
     beautiful!"

8
Charlotte, whose marriage
to Dr. Franz Braun is
         ideal.

9
"You'll get over it 
    - in time!"

10
"Mizzi, you can't imagine
the perfect happiness of
   our married life!"

11
"Don't be silly --
husbands are blind!"

12
"Did you ever see a 
   man like him!"

13
"That's his favorite
        song."

14
"Professor, I never fail
-- you're as good as
      divorced."

15
"Mrs. Stock has a fainting 
spell, and wants Dr. Braun 
     to come at once!"

16
"I thought you 
   were ill."

17
"It's my heart again."

18
"This is Dr. Braun -
Charlotte's husband."

19
"I had another attack 
of my heart trouble."

20
"You must take good 
    care of me."

21
   Dr. Gustav Mueller
calls at the Brauns' every
morning, ostensibly for
his partner, but really for
a glimpse of his partner's 
          wife.

22
"I've never seen 
you look so -
so beautiful!"

23
"I might come to your office 
some day - when you are 
  not expecting me."

24
"Anyone who talks so 
much can't be sick."

25
"Lucky Devil - to be
so loved by your own 
       wife!"

26
"I want to teach him
not to throw my roses
        away."

27
"It's a very serious 
       case."

28
"You see - how crazy 
my wife is about me?"

29
"I - er - a nervous man
   knocked it over."

30
"But I have many 
   patients!"

31
"Gustav - you're my best 
friend. Please - please
     console her."

32
With the first quarrel 
forgotten, the Brauns give
    a dinner party.

33
"We'll never quarrel
   again - never!"

34
"You seem greatly interested 
      in Miss Hofer."

35
"Dr. Schmidt - friend 
      of mine."

36
"I'm sorry, but I have
important business at the
club - that will keep me 
   there all night."

37
"He changed the place cards
so he could sit by Miss Hofer
  - but I put them back."

38
"Miss Hofer, I'm so
 glad to see you."

39
  There is more danger 
in dancing than in dining.

40
"Get him Mizzi - dance with
him - talk to him - don't
let him out of your sight!"

41
"Your dress!"

42
"I'm afraid you'll be cold!"

43
"Mizzi!"

44
"Where's Franz?"

45
When a big party ends,
 small parties begin.

46
"Your behavior with Pauline
  Hofer was simply - -
     scandalous!"

47
"If you won't believe me -
if you can't trust me -
then I can't stay here!"

48
"Dear, even if I am cross
sometimes - I love you
   just the same."

49
"I merely wanted to prove
how frightfully careless your
husband is to leave you
alone in the dead of
        night."

50
"How can a husband,
who loves his wife,
 neglect her so!"

51
"I love you - I just can't
 help it - nobody could!"

52
"Wait - I'm going back
      with you."

53
"Come upstairs - and phone
    for another taxi."

54
"Don't worry - he'll
     come back."

55
"You will not go back."

56
"I cannot live without you!"

57
"Prof. Stock has gone
         home."

58
"Josef! I need love!"

59
"- I promised to tell Prof.
Stock the result of the last 
       chess game."

60
"Pack your things."

61
Then the morning, when
one can't look the sun in
        the face.

62
"Get out and leave me
in peace - or I'll tell
     my husband!"

63
"I had a terrible dream -
Gustav was kissing me!"

64
"That's what happens -
when you leave me alone."

65
"That is true - but I give
you my word - my visit was
   entirely innocent."

66
"I believe you - but nobody
else will and I'm delighted
to have a man of your 
standing help me get rid of 
        my wife."

67
"By the way, Mizzi is at 
the Hotel Bristol - since
     this morning."

68
"Franz! There's a man 
 in this - but who?"

69
"Hotel Bristol!"

70
"Confide in me -
who is this man?"

71
"My husband - and 
 my best friend!"

72
"I'm innocent - I've done
nothing. Here is the
       proof!"

73
"Is it my fault that your 
  husband fell in love 
       with me?"

74
"I'll mail you a copy."

75
The dreaded end of a 
   dreadful day.

76
"You must talk to Charlotte
- you are the only one
in whom she has perfect
     confidence."

77
"Wait, Franz, my boy - I'll
teach you a lesson, so you'll
never look at another woman."

78
"We had better go in 
   the back way."

79
"Don't ask my forgiveness -
  I'm as guilty as you."

80
"Gustav's kiss was no dream
- it was real - in this room
   - in that very chair!"

81
"Tell me - didn't you 
return to this room last 
        night?"

82
"And didn't we kiss 
    each other?"

83
"Fifty-fifty."
