    0
    0
  • Why else would he be so concerned about her excursions in the woods?

    0
    0
  • Was that why Giddon had been so angry?

    0
    0
  • So why had he really hired Allen?

    0
    0
  • Do you know why he was spying on you?

    0
    0
  • Do you know why he'd do that?

    0
    0
  • Hopefully, the why of it wouldn't come out until she could explore that building.

    0
    0
  • Here, why don't you sit down on this chair while I look you over and ask a few questions.

    0
    0
  • Why didn't Howard call for help?

    0
    0
  • Why don't you come down to the station and file a report.

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • I don't know why I'm so tired.

    0
    0
  • It was a total mystery to her why Len and Howard couldn't light a fire in her the way Yancey did.

    0
    0
  • So that was why he was glaring at her at the dance.

    0
    0
  • So that was why he was so attentive.

    0
    0
  • Is that why you're leaving?

    0
    0
  • Oh, I can understand why you would want to deceive people, I just don't understand how you can involve your family in such a thing – especially Tammy!

    0
    0
  • But you said... why would you change your name?

    0
    0
  • So that's why you were looking me up and down the day we met.

    0
    0

    0
  • I could understand why he would be chasing her, but if I'd have known she'd go for a guy older than me...

    0
    0
  • Howard said That's why I hired Mertz.

    0
    0

    0
  • Why all the sudden attention?

    0
    0
  • Why Michael wasn't following her like all the other guys was beyond Adrienne's comprehension.

    0
    0
  • So why was she in his car?

    0
    0
  • And why was she so eager to meet his parents?

    0
    0
  • So that's why you brought me here.

    0
    0
  • I can't imagine why he didn't tell us his friend was a pretty girl.

    0
    0
  • Why wouldn't he notice?

    0
    0
  • Yeah. Why don't we go up and show it to Mom and Dad today?

    0
    0
  • If so, why didn't he simply voice his objection?

    0
    0
  • Why is everyone in such a hurry?

    0
    0
  • So, that's why you've been shutting me out.

    0
    0
  • Why Julie, I do believe you're jealous!

    0
    0
  • That's why he can't leave that ranch.

    0
    0
  • Why not check it out?

    0
    0
  • She was beginning to get an inkling why the job was still open.

    0
    0
  • That's why I'm here, I guess.

    0
    0
  • Maybe that was why they were so happy.

    0
    0
  • Why Pete hired you instead of a man, I'll never understand.

    0
    0
  • Of all things, why did he have to bring that up?

    0

    0
    0
  • That was why Pete chose the route - less risk of being robbed.

    0
    0
  • It wasn't as if that was the most important part, so why did it hurt the most?

    0
    0
  • Why don't you ride up here with me for a while and give your horse a rest?

    0

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • Why did he have to make everything an issue?

    0
    0
  • This was exactly why they didn't want a woman along.

    0
    0
  • That was probably why Bordeaux had instructed each of them to take a separate direction.

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • That's why I always wind up in places like this.

    0
    0
  • Obviously. Now tell me why.

    0
    0
  • I'm still not sure why they did - maybe because they had recently lost a lot of their own people.

    0
    0
  • Why did you think I sent you the flower - and that dress?

    0
    0
  • That would explain why he couldn't be found.

    0
    0
  • Why didn't you just say so in the first place?

    0
    0
  • But why all the secrecy?

    0
    0

  • Why couldn't she stop thinking of him that way?

    0
    0
  • I never did understand why Dad married her.

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • Then why were you so rough?

    0
    0

    0
    0
  • No, why should it?

    0
    0
  • Why don't you curl up on the couch and get your bare feet off this cold floor?

    0
    0
