Tartuffe
Jean-Baptiste Poquelin Molière

TARTUFFE
I dearly cherish your precious well-being,
And to restore it I would have given my own.

ELMIRE
Such Christian charity is overblown,
But I am much obliged for all your care.

TARTUFFE 
I try to do as much for you as I dare.

ELMIRE 
I wish to speak of some private business
And am pleased there's no one to overhear us.

TARTUFFE
I, too, am delighted, and entre nous
It's very sweet being one-on-one with you.
For this also have I begged the Deity,
But only now has he granted it to me.

ELMIRE 
I myself want an encounter between us two
Where your whole heart is opened through and through.


[Without exposing himself and in order to better hear the conversation, DAMIS opens the door of the closet in which he is hiding.]
