Victoria: You’re planning to “combat” my father? That sounds extreme.
Ashland: Nothing as aggressive as you might imagine.
Victoria: [Sighs] What precisely did you have in mind?
Ashland: I think we need to get away for a while. It’s become practically impossible to focus on anything of substance here. Uh, what if we were to escape to the palazzo in Tuscany?
Victoria: [Chuckles] Well, that sounds really nice.
Ashland: Yeah. We could — we could stop in Milan. We could, uh, take a couple of weeks to hang with Harrison and then spend a few weeks working, of course, but also enjoying the peace and serenity of our Italian getaway.
Ashland: Yeah. Now. I think now is the perfect time. It would give me a chance to investigate these slanderous accusations against me. I could — I could be working in a relatively distraction-free zone. Whether it’s your father or whoever it is that’s feeding him this false information, we need to — we need to put a stop to this thing before it gets out of control.
Victoria: I just don’t want people to think that we’re in hiding or — or that we’re running away from these allegations.
Ashland: I don’t need to run away from anything. But I am beginning to wonder… if your father has *planted more doubt in your mind than you’re willing to admit.
Ashland: I love you. I love you more than I have loved anything in my entire life. You are a gift that I do not deserve. And I want to spend the rest of my life making you happy. That’s it. That’s the confession. Victoria, I can see in your eyes you’re torn between your love for me and your fidelity to your family, that you hate the fact that we are forced to have this conversation.
Victoria: You’re right.
[Sighs] I’m so sorry.
Ashland: No. Don’t say that. You have nothing to be sorry for. Your family is breathing down your neck right now. They’re — they’re pushing this idea of some kind of insane conspiracy theory on you. Maybe they think if they say it enough times, you’ll start to believe it. I don’t know. But I’m asking you to shut out that noise. And I think the best way for you to do that is to agree to go away with me.
Victoria: You know changing our locations — it’s not gonna make our problems disappear.
Ashland: I disagree. Dealing with your family’s constant inference is neither a good way for us to function as a couple or to run a company. We need time to focus. I can’t think of a more fitting place than Tuscany, where i first pledged my love and my life to you and where you said to me, “love transcends all.”
Victoria: I remember very well.
Ashland: Then let’s do it. Let’s go.
