Tartuffe By Molière Act I: Scenes 4-6

SCENE IV

CLEANTE, DAMIS, DORINE

DAMIS

My sister's marriage; I suspect Tartuffe
Opposes it, and puts my father up
To all these wretched shifts. You know, besides,
How nearly I'm concerned in it myself;
If love unites my sister and Valere,
I love his sister too; and if this marriage
Were to . . .

DORINE
He's coming.
