Yes, Madame, you are going to see the most amusing thing imaginable.
I don't believe it would be possible to find in all the world another man
as crazy as that one is. And then too, Madame, we must try to help Cléonte's
plan by supporting his masquerade. He's a very gallant man and deserves
I think highly of him and he deserves happiness.
Besides that, we have here, Madame, another ballet performance
that we shouldn't miss, and I want to see if my idea will succeed.
I saw magnificent preparations, and I can no longer
permit this Dorante. Yes, I finally want to end your extravagances and
to stop all these expenses that I see you go to for me, I have decided
to marry you right away. This is the truth of it, that all these sorts
of things end with marriage, as you know.
Ah! Madame, is it possible that you should have taken such
a sweet decision in my favor?
It is only to impede you from ruining yourself; without
that, I see very well that before long you would not have a penny.
How obliged I am to you, Madame, for the care you have to conserve
my money! It is entirely yours, as well as my heart, and you may use them
in whatever fashion you please.
I'll make use of them both. But here is your man: his
costume is wonderful.
