Scarlett is pale and drawn from the agonies of the miscarriage from which she is recuperating. She gives Rhett one look as he appoaches her, turns her face and shrinks away from him. A moment of silence, then:

I've come to ask your forgiveness. In the hope that we can give our life together another chance.

He is contrite, simple, serious - completely without any affectation of cynicism or any distrust of Scarlett. He is the simplest and most sincere he has been in his whole life.

(without looking at him, sarcastically) Our life - together? When did we ever have a life together?

The replica of the blue velvet wrapper worn by Scarlett O'Hara was made of thirty yards of blue French silk velvet. The fox fur trim was made by Antonovich, International Ltd. of New York City. The wrapper took 140 hours to complete, from October 28 to November 29, 1986.
