-->'''Scarlett:''' What are you doing?
-->'''Rhett:''' I'm leaving you, my dear. All you need now is a divorce and your dreams of Ashley can come true.
-->'''Scarlett:''' Oh, no! No, you're wrong, terribly wrong! I don't want a divorce. Oh Rhett, but I knew tonight, when I... when I knew I loved you, I ran home to tell you, oh darling, darling!
-->'''Rhett:''' Please don't go on with this, Leave us some dignity to remember out of our marriage. Spare us this last.
-->'''Scarlett:''' This last? Oh Rhett, do listen to me, I must have loved you for years, only I was such a stupid fool, I didn't know it. Please believe me, you must care! Melly said you did.
-->'''Rhett:''' I believe you. [[ArmorPiercingQuestion What about Ashley Wilkes?]]
-->'''Scarlett:''' I... I never really loved Ashley.
-->'''Rhett:''' You certainly gave a good imitation of it, up till this morning. No, Scarlett-- I tried everything. If you'd only met me halfway, even when I came back from London.
-->'''Scarlett:''' I was so glad to see you. I was, Rhett, but you were so nasty.
-->'''Rhett:''' And then when you were sick, it was all my fault... I hoped against hope that you'd call for me, but you didn't.
-->'''Scarlett:''' I wanted you. I wanted you desperately but I didn't think you wanted me.
-->'''Rhett:''' It seems we've been at cross purposes, doesn't it? But it's no use now. As long as there was Bonnie, there was a chance that we might be happy. I liked to think that Bonnie was you, a little girl again, before the war, and poverty had done things to you. She was so like you, and I could pet her, and spoil her, as I wanted to spoil you. But when she went, she took everything.
-->'''Scarlett:''' Oh, Rhett, Rhett please don't say that. I'm so sorry, I'm so sorry for everything.
-->'''Rhett:''' My darling, you're such a child. You think that by saying, "I'm sorry," all the past can be corrected. Here, take my handkerchief. Never, at any crisis of your life, have I known you to have a handkerchief.
-->'''Scarlett:''' Rhett! Rhett, where are you going?
-->'''Rhett:''' I'm going back to Charleston, back where I belong.
-->'''Scarlett:''' Please, please take me with you!
-->'''Rhett:''' No, I'm through with everything here. I want peace. I want to see if somewhere there isn't something left in life of charm and grace. Do you know what I'm talking about?
-->'''Scarlett:''' No! I only know that I love you.
-->'''Rhett:''' That's your misfortune.
-->''[He turns to walk down the stairs]''
-->'''Scarlett:''' Oh, Rhett!
-->''[She watches Rhett walk to the door]''
-->'''Scarlett:''' Rhett!
-->''[runs down the stairs after Rhett]''
-->'''Scarlett:''' Rhett, Rhett!
-->''[catches him as he's walking out the front door]''
-->'''Scarlett:''' Rhett... if you go, where shall I go? What shall I do?
-->'''Rhett:''' Frankly my dear, '''''I don't give a damn.'''''
