Nora interacts with her husband as a child would with her father. She has transitioned from daughter to wife with no visible difference in the way she behaves. Dr. Rank, however, seems to bring out the woman, the motherly, caring person Nora could be if she wanted to. She talks to him like an adult, she seems genuinely concerned about his condition, and when he is visiting she can be herself.
