  • [birds chirping]

  • You are Mari the housekeeper.

  • He's told me of you.

  • [thud]

  • Some creatures must go back to go wild, it seems.

  • Monsieur Trepagny smashes them with his stick at night

  • and they know to stay away from our bed.

  • He does have dominion over all.

  • As his wife, I will therefore need you to serve my needs.

  • Help me see to the house so that I may improve the estate

  • and have it well on the way to prospering

  • so that our children may in turn enjoy the bounty of this land.

  • You will bear no children.

  • MELISSANDE: I am the lady of the house.

  • I steer the man.

  • In time, I will steer him any way I want.

  • To renovate, toss out old habits back into the forest where

  • they belong.

  • There is my dear husband.

  • CLAUDE: I was out searching for Sel

  • and I found something, Mari.

  • These seem to have run away from my sanctum.

  • What do you know about this?

  • Nothing.

  • And Monsieur Sel?

  • He took has departed.

  • I go away for one day and my doma falls to disorder.

  • You saw nothing at all?

  • As the housekeeper, you should be aware of the comings

  • and goings on the estate.

  • A dog could do better.

  • [smash]

  • Perhaps you can discover what has happened to Monsieur Sel.

  • I will speak alone with Melissande.

  • [tense music]

  • Go on.

  • [door slamming]

  • I see now the arrangement who wish to design for yourself.

  • I have made no such designs, my cherie.

  • I wish to do only beautiful things in this doma

  • and you will be my partner in this, and as my partner,

  • you will learn to look past my many flaws,

  • and I will look past your shortcomings,

  • which I'm sure are few.

  • [exhales]

  • Did you know that I sailed across an ocean

  • and walked into the endless forest

  • that I could find the correct man

  • to bestow my maiden head on?

  • That is no small thing.

  • There are deeper bindings towards which we must work.

  • The binding of the two into a one.

  • There will be no more binding nor any more bedding

  • until you tell me the truth.

  • I gave it once.

  • I may never give it again.

  • Which truth this?

  • There are so many floating about.

  • Pluck one for me and I will tell it.

  • Mari.

  • Yes.

  • MELISSANDE: You have lain with her.

  • What would you have me do?

  • You have given her a son.

  • Did she tell you that?

  • MELISSANDE: Nobody told me a thing.

  • I have eyes-- a brain.

  • They will know when you've gone to visit her cabin

  • and when you have not.

  • We will have a proper wedding ceremony.

  • I will wear a special dress.

  • There will be dancing.

  • Yes, of course.

  • We will have a wonderful ceremony.

  • Now I am brimming with ideas on how to improve the doma.

  • You spoke true of its beauty, but it must be tamed.

  • Not everything will lay down for you, Melissande.

  • This is my doma.

  • And as its master, I must stride it with vigor and authority.

  • You may stride anywhere you like with as much vigor

  • as you may muster.

  • But your visit Mari's cabin at your own peril.
