[GIORGIO]Clara ... I cried.
[BOTH]Imagine that, a soldier who cries.
[CLARA]I had to hide my eyes, so the others on the train That carried me away from you would think I was asleep.
[DOCTOR][spoken] That's Signora Fosca playing.
[COLONEL][spoken] My cousin. I have no family and neither does she. She is in such poor health, it's a continual worry.
[DOCTOR][spoken] That's her place setting, but she stays in her room most days. Perhaps soon she'll be well enough to join us for a meal.
[ From: http://www.metrolyrics.com/first-letter-lyrics-a.html ] [RIZZOLLI][spoken] She eats like a sparrow.
[TORASSO][spoken] My apologies, sir. The comparison has struck me as funny. A sparrow seems to eat more than Signora Fosca. A pity it is ...
[COLONEL (to Giorgio)][spoken] My cousin loves to read - it's her only passion, really. I can't find enough books for her.
[GIORGIO][spoken] I also love reading. I've brought a few of my favorite books down. Perhaps I could lend them to Signora Fosca, though I can't promise they will appeal to her.
[COLONEL][spoken] Young man, she's been driven to reading military handbooks. I've no doubt she will welcome anything in print.
[AUGENTI][spoken] Post arrived!
[RIZZOLLI][spoken] Hand it round Augenti. Nothing for me again? It's been two weeks.
[AUGENTI][spoken] It smells to me as if Captain Bachetti has a letter from an admirer.
