I might be a little more sympathetic if you had not called me, and I quote:
Abominable swindler, meddler, thief!
Acts 1 and 2 are, grudgingly I must admit after those insults, PL OK.

And I don't know how we are going to get along in Act 3 without you, but considering that you have been locked in the cellar with a full cask of muscat wine at the end of Act 2, you might not have been very compos mentis for act 3 anyway.

Thanks, Todd

thank you for these :lol: haha this is a funny moment with such a prompter. Especially the metempsychosis part. :mrgreen:

I'm afraid you missed the very first sentence though :|

> at about 0:06: (p. 235) missed line: "Queer fellow, this !"

The role was cut a bit short, could have gone on for comic relief.

I seem to have missed several lines in parts recently. Thank you for your patience with me, Sonia! Here is the file with the missing line added:

Breakfasts are such a bore. Actually I believe the correct spelling is “mus’Kater”.

is that a slander I may contest in court, I wonder

Non Compos Mentos ... the act of running out of breath mints in court.

If you take meat from a calf...

... it could either be veal or below-knee.

@Todd and Chris: you seem to have had a merry time in the cellar with the muscat cask as well, meseems.... :roll: please sober up before you record your roles (or I may sue you, just for fun)

Just for that, Todd and I are now reconsidering our promise to help the Countess launch her new Chanel fragrance “Nuit d’ivresse”. :lol:
