Indexer Notes

Credits per Nick Caputo, December 2014.

Lee's dialogue in the final panel is changed from the original version. Here, he says "I have some friends in the town we're going to. You can stay with them until you buy your trousseau for our wedding!" In the original, he says "We can get all that on the way! We'll call it your trousseau--darling!" Clearly the Comics Code wanted to make it clear that Lee and Francie wouldn't be "together" in a strange town until they are legally married.
