Captain Arthur Keller:
Miss Sullivan, I find it difficult to talk through those glasses. Why do you wear them? The sun's been down over an hour.

Annie Sullivan:

Captain Arthur Keller:
Well, put them on, Miss Sullivan. I've decided to give you a second chance.

Annie Sullivan:

Captain Arthur Keller:

Annie Sullivan:

Captain Arthur Keller:

Annie Sullivan:

Annie Sullivan:
