Tartuffe
Jean-Baptiste Poquelin Molière

TARTUFFE                    
All right! It's a pact.
But in future I know how I must act.
Honor is tender, and friendship engages
Me to prevent gossip--however outrageous.
I'll avoid your wife and you will not see me . . .

ORGON 
No, in spite of everyone, you and she
Must often meet. I love to make a stir,
So day and night let them see you with her.
No, that's not enough, but this will make them stew:
I don't want to have any heir but you,
And I'm going to legally designate
You as the owner of my whole estate.
A frank and true friend, whom I take as my son,
Is dearer to me than my wife or children.
Will you accept the offer I am making?

TARTUFFE 
May God's will be done in this undertaking!

ORGON 
Poor man! Let's quickly put it all in writing,
And let their envy choke on its own spiting.
