Come here. We need to speak
Father, what is it you seek?
ORGON [looking in the closet]
I'm seeing if anyone can overhear us.
This is a perfect place for such a purpose.
There now, it's okay. Mariane, I find
You endowed with a heart that's sweet and kind
And you have always been most dear to me.
A father's love brings true felicity.
Well said, my child! And to earn it fully
You should devote yourself to contenting me.
That's how my devotion is put to the proof.
