GORGIBUS, MADELON, CATHOS, JODELET, MASCARILLE, AND MUSICIANS.
GORGIBUS: Ah! you hussies, you have put us in a nice pickle, by what I can see; I have heard about your fine goings on from those two gentlemen who just left.
MADELON: Ah, father! they have played us a cruel trick.
GORGIBUS: Yes, it is a cruel trick, but you may thank your own impertinence for it, you jades. They have revenged themselves for the way you treated them; and yet, unhappy man that I am, I must put up with this affront.
MADELON: Ah! I swear we will be revenged, or I shall die in the attempt. And you, rascals, dare you remain here after your insolence?
MASCARILLE: Do you treat a marquis in this manner? This is the way of the world; the least misfortune causes us to be slighted by those who before caressed us. Come along, brother, let us go and seek our fortune somewhere else; I perceive they love nothing here but outward show, and have no regard for worth unadorned. [The both leave.]
