Prior to this monologue, Helena told a lovesick Sonia that she would find out if the doctor has feelings for her. In this speech, Helena is by herself. She says it is obvious that the doctor does not love Sonia and then expresses that she is in love with him, herself. She speaks of how she is drawn to the doctor and how she feels guilty because of this.
