"I'm trying to tell you, Gordon. I'm all right. I had the dreadful shock of losing you and for a week or two - I was beside myself with grief, I admit it… But I'm gradually getting over it, love… I'm coming to terms with it, you see. With being alone. Listen I hate to say this to your face, it sounds so terrible, but I really don't need you, Gordon, not any more…."
