[Watson Sr.'s clinic.] (Enter Dan and Marcus) DAN The volley of our patrons now subsides. Let us, while they are yet diminish�d, Recover strength, in wit and physic both, That we may suffer them another round. MARCUS So aggravate art thou in thy conceits! 'Tis only till our father is recovered We are to take his stead. Wherefore disdainest Thou who provideth us our income? DAN Disdain? Nay, brother, this is but derision. Disdain and scorn and malice I reserve For the state that profligates our income. MARCUS Prithee, do spare me thy bombastic rants. 'Tis not as terrible as thou wouldst bark. What of the feds, what issues problem they? Their purposes do lay on naught but us And our wellbeing. Why art thou laughing? DAN 'Tis not at thee, assurances; I laugh At such a paradox. They'd have us mired Till Christ's return in bog of welfare, but I know they would not have us faring well. Thou must recall the confrontation 'twixt The government and me when I'd been training For this, our current chiropractice. MARCUS Alas, I do. It was a troubled time. DAN Indeed! For they'd have had us all de-fanged And gumming desperately upon their dug Than living, feeding, dying on ambition. I would that I were teething so to maul That teat, than bear such an indignity. MARCUS One need not hang on their security; Thou hadst thy family to support thee. In spite of all of Ronald's numerous Responsibilities, he would have given Thee aught it was thou neededst. DAN I am sure He would have, as he is generous And loyal most, to the extent of thinness, But I did not wish to trouble him. 16 summer further MARCUS The church had such a means to help thee through Those times. DAN I've such a means to help the church, For they are truly needing in these times Moe guidance than I do. MARCUS What? Heresy! DAN Committing treason 'gainst the mutineers Is in the end an act of loyalty. Never was there betrayal greater than The church's long neglect of the divine Command that one should try to supplement Deficient marriage with moe wives. MARCUS Now mine Humor doth overthrow mine etiquette. Is this thy grounds for shagging out thy locks, That thou mightst shag out some nubile minx? The concept of thee with a mistress quakes One's body with a laughing peal. DAN Why should We have but one? If we're to procreate As much as can be done, wherefore confine Ourselves to but a single concubine, Especially if ordered from above? MARCUS Dost thou Sincerely hope to resurrect the old And rusted doctrine of polygamy? `Tis foolhardiness. DAN I do not hope-- (A bell) But soft, the customers are hither come. They want our hands, but will instead get arms, For hark: our armistice is at an end. MARCUS But a moment, and out we'll be! DAN Though we resume, this conversation's far From finish�d; we can elaborate Some later point. The truth will be restored, The highest Heaven tier be our reward.
