However, “models are a dime a dozen” and she becomes a “dreary, under-paid...city white collar worker!” Diane writes to Dave, pretending to be a success, but he reads between the lines and visits her, reaffirming his love. Although she receives a modeling offer at the last minute, Diane decides to go home and marry Dave.
