  • [grunting]

  • Monsieur Trepagny.

  • Duquet is gone.

  • Did you stay on the path?

  • No.

  • What sort of a man are you?

  • I don't know what you mean.

  • Will you vouch for Duquet or give

  • your word on his character?

  • I take him here to my [inaudible],,

  • show him the path to becoming free, a landed man,

  • and now he has fled the contract of his indenture,

  • leaving me to suspect what lurks in your heart.

  • Will you flee or sink your ax into my skull

  • the moment I turn my back?

  • No, sir.

  • I will let you know if you abandon our agreement

  • like our compatriot Duquet, I will weigh twofold on your hide

  • the fair and proper punishment to your ilk.

  • I'm a man of my word.

  • You had better be.

  • Now, tell me of the ram.

  • It is no coincidence that Duquet took his leave after bringing

  • that cursed ram here.

  • Duquet said nothing to me.

  • Now I fear I have loosed something into this world I

  • will soon regret.

  • Duquet?

  • TREPAGNY: Yes.

  • A cunning creature who, if he does not find his death,

  • will prosper as frog to pond, rat to rot.

  • The clever Duquet will find his place in Warwick.

  • Duquet is afraid of the woods.

  • He will get lost and die.

  • I'm sure of it.

  • He will overcome that fear because he is a rat,

  • and he will prosper with these teeth and claws

  • and never forebear it.

  • I will search again tomorrow.

  • No.

  • You must return to your duties.

  • Now, if I may avail myself of your fire just for a moment.
