Well, I would like to jump in and take on Hubbard who seems not so nice.

BTW, there seems to be something amiss at the end of Act I
===
Hubbard

Oh, nothing, nothing—a murmur of voices—and the woman's—I could swear I have heard her voice before.

(Knox shows his relief.) Well, so long.

(Starts to move toward exit to right.) You won't reconsider your decision?

Knox

(Shaking his head.)

Hubbard

(Pausing, open door in hand, and laughing cynically.) And yet it was but a moment ago that it seemed I heard you say there was no one whom you would not permit the world to know you saw.

(Starting.) What do you mean?

Hubbard

Good-bye
====

I think "(Starting.) What do you mean?" is a line for Knox

PL Notes for Margaret Act 1

Missing line at the beginning

No Tommy first


PL Notes for Margaret Act 2

At the end of act 2 there is a missing line

There must be immortality. There must be a future life where you and I shall meet again. Good-bye.

Thank you for spotting that Larry there are a couple of occasions in this where the lines are not assigned correctly.
I will sign you up to Hubbard.

PL Notes for Margaret Act 2

Here's the corrected file for Margaret Act 2:

(11:46)

Regarding that line from Act 1, I think that is a transcription mistake. The text goes like this:

Tommy

(Laughing.)

But mama.


Margaret

(Herself laughing, but shaking her head.) No. Tommy First—


Margaret

No; you must run along to Linda, now, mother's boy. And we'll talk about that some other time.

It doesn't make sense for Margaret to say "Tommy first" and then "No" again. From the missing punctuation and the capitalisation of the word first, I think that it was supposed to be that Tommy says "First", and Margaret only says that "No" in the beginning. I recorded that first "No" in my first version of the recording, so I didn't upload a new version.

Here are the recordings for Acts 3 and 4:
