I thought the entire scene was pretty funny.  Bobby and
Major Briggs are involved in a shouting match, part of their
continuing disagreement, which Betty MUST have heard as she
approached the room.  But as she enters the room, she cheerily
says something like "Is everybody ready?"  Clearly, the other 
two aren't, but she's the shepherd...
