Act V - Scene V
ORGON, MADAME PERNELLE, ELMIRE, CLEANTE, MARIANE, DAMIS, DORINE
Well, mother, am I right or am I not?
This writ may help you now to judge the matter.
Or don't you see his treason even yet?
I'm all amazed, befuddled, and beflustered!
DORINE: (to Orgon)
You are quite wrong, you have no right to blame him;
This action only proves his good intentions.
Love for his neighbour makes his virtue perfect;
And knowing money is a root of evil,
In Christian charity, he'd take away
Whatever things may hinder your salvation.
Be still. You always need to have that told you.
CLEANTE: (to Orgon)
Come, let us see what course you are to follow.
Go and expose his bold ingratitude.
Such action must invalidate the contract;
His perfidy must now appear too black
To bring him the success that he expects.
