Georgia Hale’s like, “Mm-hmm, yeah, I’ll somehow live without you. Toodles!” in The Gold Rush.
In Seven Years Bad Luck, Max Linder cannot deal with it, cannot process it, and is leaving this very instant. As you can imagine, this one has been getting quite a workout on Twitter.
Available on DVD in Image’s out of print Laugh with Max Linder DVD (with a score by Robert Israel) and as part of Kino’s The Max Linder Collection (with a score by Maude Nelissen).

The athletic Kathryn Boyd is outta there in The Flying Ace, an aviation-themed payroll robbery mystery.
