ou don't want them,--I'll give 'em to Bert.

(She evades him deftly, and picks up the life-preserving suit.)

GEORGE. When a submarine gets you, all you've got to do is to jump overboard and blow this--

This is for pate de foie gras sandwiches, and there's room in here--
(Indicating another pocket.)
--for a bottle of fizz. Come along with me, Minnie, ship as a Red Cross nurse, and I'll buy you one. The Atlantic wouldn't be such a bad place, with you,--and we wouldn't be in a hurry to blow the siren. You'd look like a peach in a white costume, too.
MINNIE. Don't you like me in this?
GEORGE. Sure, but I'd like that better.
