CLI. May I be hanged if I love you; and.... [Footnote: Molière ends this line with sage, with, apparently, no other motive than to find a rhyme to _davantage._]

BEL. No, no. I will hear nothing more.

SCENE V. CLITANDRE (_alone_)

ACT II.

SCENE I.--ARISTE (leaving CLITANDRE, _and still speaking to him_).

SCENE II; CHRYSALE, ARISTE.

ARI. Good day to you, brother.
