When Charlie goes out to pick up the pizza, Susan confesses that she's having an affair, while Gayle considers making a play for Charlie herself. (scene 2) Susan screws up her courage to tell Charlie it's over, but not before he proposes to her. Susan decides to stay with Charlie and to forego the passion of her lover.

Comment "An earlier version of this play was given a workshop production at the Trinity Rep Conservatory directed by Katie Cabral (David F. Eliet, Artistic Director) in 1983. This play has not been published or professionally produced."
