Act I Scene IV

I wish you’d say a word to him about

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…

He’s coming.
