You are here:
SANCHO and JOSÉ re-enter and come down. Meanwhile JUANITA and
PEDRO are crossing bridge and coming down.
SANCHO: (coming down)
The poor gentleman has fainted. (to
JOSÉ) Apothecary! the restoratives.
Restoration isn't much in our line. (They feel his pulse)
I may as well take my fee in advance.
SANCHO: (taking his watch and chain)
There's a weight off his chest.
How doth the patient?
He is already considerably relieved.
Leave him to me.
(to SANCHO) Keep watch.
(aside) And chain.
INEZ: (to JUANITA)
GRIGG: (starting up)
At . . . ch . . .
(stops in middle of a sneeze)
Inez - José - Juanita - Sancho - it's the gang!
We accept your apology. And now what course do you mean to take?
Well, I haven't got much appetite for anything.
No trifling. How will you deal with
(suddenly and boldly) I shall deny them!
ALL: (PEDRO GOMEZ, JUANITA, SANCHO, JOSÉ coming down)

SANCHO, JOSÉ, and PEDRO:
JUANITA: (coming down)
Your wife and friends are returning.
What's to be done?
Purchase the picture -
and our silence.
All nod and put their fingers to their lips.
Good! A hundred pounds!
(Stretching out his hand)
I haven't got it!
"Borrow in Spain" -
(suddenly) of the Count! I will.
In ten minutes you shall have it - here!
(They make a sign of silence) Mum!
