“I’m your husband, John, for God’s sake. How dare you leave me to shoulder all the guilt.”

“I’ll see you in purgatory.”

“What, the hell?”
“Elizabeth … in ‘Pride and Prejudice’. Mama likes to read to me. …My Harry, as handsome as Mr Darcy. I married him yesterday, you know.”
“He’s been dead forty years. We buried him.”
