This monologue takes place in the tack room when Lizzie brings the bedding to Starbuck.
After Starbuck accuses Lizzie of not having any dreams, Lizzie tells Starbuck that there is more than one kind of dream. She explains that her dream is to experience the simple beauty of everyday domestic life.
NOTE: In order to elongate this monologue, you can combine it with Lizzie's monologue in Act III. In this segment, Lizzie tells Starbuck that she sometimes watches her father when he's playing poker and that it's through these observations that she sees and loves him for the person he is.
