Nina Leeds: I gave him - what did I give him? Its what I didn't give. That last night, before he sailed, in his arms, knowing - something in me knowing that he would die. Never kiss me again, knowing so surely. And yet my cowardly brain lying, "No, he'll come back and marry you. You'll be happy ever after. With his children in your arms, looking up with his eyes. But, Gordon didn't marry me. And now Gordon is muddy ashes and I've lost my happiness forever.
Nina Leeds: Fly up to heaven! Fly with your love, then. Fly always. Never crash to earth like my old Gordon. Be happy, dear! You've got to be happy.
Nina Leeds: I wonder if our old garden is the same? We'll pick flowers together, in the aging afternoons of Spring and Summer. I'm so contentedly weary of life.
Nina Leeds: Oh, Ned, are you saying you wanted to tell Gordon something?
Dr. Ned Darrell: No. There's - nothing to tell.
Nina Leeds: We've saved a soul. Sam's soul. We brought him happiness. Surely that's not a lifetime lived in vain.
Dr. Ned Darrell: You heard what Gordon said. He expects us to marry. But, he'll be so pleased when he knows you turned me down.
Nina Leeds: Yes. Our ghosts would torture us to death, wouldn't they.
