MIKE (low): "There's magnificence in you, Tracy. I'm telling you. . . . A magnificence that comes out of your eyes, that's in your voice, in the way you stand there, in the way you walk. You're lit from within, bright, bright, bright. There are fires banked in you, hearth-fires and holocausts—"
TRACY: "You—I don't seem to you—made of bronze, then—"
MIKE: "You're made of flesh and blood—that's the blank, unholy surprise of it. You're the golden girl, Tracy, full of love and warmth and delight—"
