SCENE IV
(ORGON, CLEANTE, DORINE)

ORGON                         
Hello, brother!

CLEANTE 
I'm glad you've returned before my departure.
The countryside isn't quite blossoming yet.

ORGON 
Dorine . . . One second brother, please!  Just let
Me set my heart at ease and soothe my fear
Concerning the things that have happened here. [To DORINE.]
For these past two days, how have things gone on?
What has happened?  And how is everyone?

DORINE
The first day your wife had a bad fever
And a headache that just wouldn't leave her.

ORGON  
And Tartuffe?

DORINE              
Tartuffe?  He's in splendid shape,
Fat and flabby, with red lips, and a shining face.

ORGON 
Poor fellow!

DORINE             
That night, your wife felt so sick
And so feverish that she could only pick
At her dinner and scarcely ate a bite.
