Chorus
Never have I heard speech so elegant or so sensible.

Philocleon
Ah! he thought he had only to turn me round his finger; [635] he should, however have known the vigour of my eloquence.

Chorus
He has said everything without omission. I felt myself grow taller while I listened to him. [640] Methought myself meting out justice in the Islands of the Blest, so much was I taken with the charm of his words.

Bdelycleon

Chorus
Come, plot everything [645] you can to beat him; 'tis not easy to soften me if you do not talk on my side.
