Enter MENAECHMUS SOSICLES and MESSENIO.
Do you dare affirm, audacious fellow, that I have ever met you this day since the time when I ordered you to come here to meet me? MESSENIO
Why, I just now rescued you before this house, when four men were carrying you off upon their shoulders. You invoked the aid of all Gods and men, when I ran up and delivered you by main force, fighting, and in spite of them. For this reason, because I rescued you, you set me at liberty. When I said that I was going for the money and the luggage, you ran before to meet me as quickly as you could, in order that you might deny what you did. MENAECHMUS SOSICLES
I, bade you go away a free man? MESSENIO
Certainly. MENAECHMUS SOSICLES
Why, on the contrary, 'tis most certain that I myself would rather become a slave than ever give you your freedom.
