Kennicott sees her point of view and agrees to give her a percentage of his income and let her have her own checking account. Carol thanks him but Kennicott continues to voice his grievances. According to him Carol frightens his good friend Sam Clark with her highbrow attitude. Sam doesnít put his legs up on a chair or smoke a cigar in their house because he is afraid of Carolís disapproval. He tells her that she scares him by first asking him a question, which he cannot answer, and then shocks him by talking about mistresses. He sums up that she is very moody and advises her to be temperamental by herself. Carol seizes the chance to point out that she does not have her own room to be by herself. He tells her that he would build a new house, where she can have her own room. He is certain he would get no credit for that and asserts that Carol would drive away all his friends and his patients by the time he built the house. Infuriated by this remark Carol declares that she will leave him so that he could find another wife.


Kennicott admits that they had been cranky. He says that she is not as bad as he said she is but he also tells her that she is not as good as she thinks she is. He wants her to tell him why she thinks she is superior to everyone else. She admits that her father felt superior to all people and she might have inherited it from him. Kennicott tells her that his friends have hidden virtues that she never bothered to notice. Jack Elder loved music and Lymn Cass had a love for history. Carol never pays any attention to even his ambitions according to Kennicott. He explains to her that they need a lot of money to visit all the places that Carol wants to visit. He also tells her that besides building a new house he wants to put by enough money so that they need not depend on any one in their old age. He asks her if she ever thought of lean days and Carol has to admit that she did not. So Kennicott tells her that she should not think of him as being money minded. Carol feels very repentant and promises not to call on the Dillons.
