Anne: Will you swear to be my friend forever and ever?
Diana: Why it's dreadfully wicked to swear.
Anne: Oh no, not my kind of swearing. There are two kinds, you know.
Diana: Well, I don't mind doing that. How do you do it?
Anne: We must join hands--so. It ought to be over running water. We'll just imagine this path is running water. I'll repeat the oath first. I solemnly swear to be faithful to my bosom friend, Diana Barry, as long as the sun and moon shall endure. Now you say it and put my name in.
Diana: *repeats oath* You're a queer girl, Anne. I heard before that you were queer. But I believe I'm going to like you real well.
