KING

I want to throw a party.


FOOL We all want to throw parties.


KING

I don't know, something about this one feels – different?


FOOL Different how?


KING It's bubbling up. I can't control it.


FOOL Well, what can we do about that?


KING I'm just not sure.


FOOL Well, what do you want to do?


KING

I suppose it could be anything.


FOOL

I want to throw a party?


KING You do?


FOOL I do.


KING You?


FOOL That's what I said.


KING You stole my idea.


FOOL Your idea?


KING To throw a party.


FOOL

So that's your idea now?


KING It is.


FOOL Since when?


KING Since I had it.


FOOL

And when was that?


KING Just a few moments ago.


FOOL And whose idea was it before that?


KING Well, I've been thinking about it for a few days now.


FOOL And you've just now decided to say something. Convenient.


KING I'll hear nothing of convenience.


FOOL All I want to know is where did the idea come from?


KING My head.


FOOL But you had it only a few days ago.


KING Exactly!


FOOL Who had it before you?


KING No one.


FOOL No one's ever had a party before?


KING Not like the one I've dreamt up.


FOOL And what is that exactly?


KING What was that?


FOOL

My lord.


KING A festivity.


FOOL We love our festivities.


KING More than the objects of celebration.


FOOL So it's settled. I'm throwing a party.


KING Again with my ideas.


FOOL You keep the idea. I'll throw the party.


KING If you insist.


FOOL I do.


KING What was that?


FOOL My lord.
