ORGON [to CLEANTE]  
Perhaps he has come here to reconcile us.
How should I act and what should we discuss?

CLEANTE
Don't let any of your anger appear,
And if he speaks of a deal, make him be clear.
Monsieur Loyal [to ORGON
Greetings, sir. May God destroy all your foes
And favor you as much as I propose!

ORGON [aside to CLEANTE]
This civil start meets my approbation
And foreshadows some accommodation.

MONSIEUR LOYAL
At one time I was your father's employee,
And this whole house is very dear to me.

ORGON 
I ask your pardon, sir, but to my shame
I'm totally ignorant of your name.

MONSIEUR LOYAL
My name is Loyal. I come from Normandy.
I'm the bailiff here, in spite of envy.
For the last forty years, thanks be to God,
I've done my duty and retained by job.
And I've come to you, with your permission,
To serve this notice of your eviction.

ORGON 
What! You're here . . .
