Nathan And yet, so many courtiers do just that. If the world only knew how I suffer.
Cristov Aw, poor you. Aren’t you supposed to be at court today?
Nathan … … … No.
Cristov I’m pretty sure you are.
Nathan Why would you think that?
Cristov Because it’s a court day.
Nathan Well, I… … … called a holiday. Yes, it’s a holiday. A Royal Holiday.
Catherine He lost his crown.
Nathan Did not! It’s a HOLIDAY!
Cristov He lost it again?
Catherine He lost it again.
Cristov I thought… didn’t you…?
Catherine Sigh. He outwitted me this time. Found my stash and hid them all.
Nathan Did not! I just… I mispl…. IT WAS STOLEN!!!
Catherine Nathan, it was not stolen.
Nathan Was, too! Now there will have to be an inquiry. Oooh, yes! An inquiry! And I won’t be able to hold court until it’s found! It could take years! Call out the guard!!!
Catherine Years, huh?
Nathan Best of all, I can have ALL the courtiers INTERROGATED! That’ll be fun!
Catherine Go get your crown from wherever you hid it and scram! You’re driving me insane!
Nathan You were insane when I met you. You can’t pin that on me.
Catherine You have no idea. But keep it up and you’re going to find out.
