CHREMES

SOPHRONA
I am bestirring.

CHREMES

PYTHIAS

CHREMES
All of them.

PYTHIAS
Prithee, what does she say? Does she recognize them?

CHREMES
Yes, with a full recollection of them.

PYTHIAS
Upon my faith, you do bring good news; for I really wish well to this young woman. Go in-doors: my mistress has been for some time expecting you at home. CHREMES and SOPHRONA go into THAIS'S house. But look, yonder I espy that worthy fellow, Parmeno, coming: just see, for heaven's sake, how leisurely he moves along. I hope I have it in my power to torment him after my own fashion. I'll go in-doors, that I may know for certain about the discovery; afterward I'll come out, and give this villain a terrible fright. Goes into the house.
