Sultan. Is the story finished?
Hassan. That is only the beginning, O King. That little boy was myself and the Sultan was your father and the story I have been telling to the slave, which she has been telling to the Sultana, is the story of my own life and, O King, this is the point: you have yourself commanded that the story which is my life is to have a happy ending.
Sultan. By the beard of my grandfather, you have played an odd trick upon me!
Hassan. It is the odd trick, O King, that wins the game!
Sultan. But not the rubber. Take back your wife I restore her to you. (Handing Sunbeam to him.) I fancy that's the rub.
Hassan. Yes, you've won.
(Yussuf joins Heart's Desire.)
