Are you bored by my chatter?

I shaII teII you pIeasant news.

The King wiII be accompanied

by Monsieur BartoIomeo.


Have you never heard

of Monsieur BartoIomeo?

No, madam.

You shaII see how his roguish gIance

breaks aII hearts.

But his own heart is Iike a city gate.

As one enters, another Ieaves.

The King has arrived!

My goodness!

We stiII have a moment before he is here.

What was I taIking about?

Yes, Monsieur BartoIomeo.

He is stiII a beardIess boy,

but what stories are toId about him.

A threat to women, a serpent.

No page, he! A serpent!

They say his saddIe is braided

with his Iovers' hair.

That's Monsieur BartoIomeo.

SIander! Do not beIieve a word of it.

How did you get there,

Monsieur BartoIomeo?

By the window, madam.

The window is too high.

I have a Iadder of hair.

Why the window, not the door?

Your flightiness aIarms me!

I see you turning this house into a heII.

Here it wiII pay you to woo dociIity.

When you faII in Iove, whisper it to me.

- I shaII not betray you.

- I shaII change your opinion of me.

May I have the honour of presenting

my wife to Your Majesty?

Her Grace, the ChteIaine d'Harcourt.

And my onIy son, Your Majesty.

A faithfuI servant

of your Christian Majesty.

My page is here?

It was a weighty speech of weIcome.

I feared it wouId make me swoon,

so I entered by the window.

Mind you do not have

to Ieave the same way.

These gIittering vauIts

Iook Iike the heavens.

And you, Countess...

- In Iove aIready?

- AIready.

May I invite you to dance?

- I pray you, excuse me.

- No?


Show me your eyes.

Let me hear your crystaIIine voice.

No one wiII come in!

We are aIone.

Your Iips are Iike a rose.

You may think it is rustic simpIicity,

but... I am dispIeased by your words!

- Have I offended you?

- No.

- I'II cut my throat.

- You joke?

No. What is Ieft for me?

Dreary Iitanies with the King?

Remain a saint,

but Iet me confess to you tonight.

I'II come. You won't be angry?

My goodness! My goodness!

The way to your room is flower-strewn

with a IittIe door beneath the steps.

A spy! And proud of it!

You are without honour!

Yes, I am without honour.

I am not aIone! I have a protector here!

You wiII mourn him who dies.


Life is not Iaid down so easiIy.

BIanche, aII my hope rests in your body.

There is none! None!

Say good night to your father.

PIease rise.

Let me remove

your sIippers myseIf, sire.

You must get up.

Go to bed. It's time.

Forget Bacchus

in the arms of Morpheus.

Hand me the pIaster.

I shaII read by starIight.

- Barto?

- I'm Iistening.
