SCENE V
(ORGON, CLEANTE, MARIANE, ELMIRE, MADAME PERNELLE, DORINE, DAMIS)

ORGON 
There! You now see, mother, that I was right,
And you can judge of the rest by this writ.
Do you admit at last that he can lie?

MADAME PERNELLE
It's as if a bolt has struck from the sky.

DORINE [to ORGON
You're wrong to complain, and wrong to blame him.
These things show the grand plans of your seraphim.
His neighborly love finds consummation
In proving that wealth causes degradation,
And from pure charity he wants to remove
Every obstacle between you and God's love.

ORGON 
Shut up. . . . I'm always saying that to you.

CLEANTE [to ORGON
Let us consider what we ought to do.

ELMIRE 
We must expose this man's insolent acts.
His deeds invalidate all the contracts.
And his disloyalty will seem too plain
If he tries to use them for personal gain.
