Final Scene
(POLICE OFFICER, TARTUFFE, VALERE, ORGON , ELMIRE,
MARIANE, MADAME PERNELLE, CLEANTE, DAMIS, DORINE)

TARTUFFE [stopping ORGON
Slowly, slowly, sir. You needn't run there.
You won't have to go far to hide in your lair.
In the Prince's name we will shackle you fast.

ORGON 
Traitor, you've kept this final shaft for last.
This is the blow with which you dispatch me,
And this is what crowns all your perfidy.

TARTUFFE 
Your scorn causes me scant irritation;
I bear it as a holy obligation.

CLEANTE 
This is scant sign of your moderation.

DAMIS 
How impudently the wretch mocks veneration!

TARTUFFE 
None of your outbursts mean a thing to me,
For I think of nothing but doing my duty.

MARIANE
Your pretense to honor is all a fake,
And this is just the right job for you to take.
