SCENE II
(DAMIS, ORGON, CLEANTE)

DAMIS 
Father, is it true that this cad threatens you,
That he has forgotten the gifts that bound you two,
And that his shameful pride, maddeningly,
Has repaid your kindness with tyranny?

ORGON 
Yes, son; he's brought me to the verge of tears.

DAMIS 
Leave him to me. I'll cut off his ears.
You must not flinch before his insolence
For I'll soon restore your independence,
And, to end the matter, I'll slice him like toast.

CLEANTE 
That's exactly like a bratty boy's boast.
Please make your angry words more moderate.
We live during a time and in a state
Where violent acts are clearly unlawful.
