WAITING FOR GODOT (Excerpt)

Drama by Samuel Beckett

 VLADIMIR:
You must be happy too, deep down, if you only knew it.
ESTRAGON: 
Happy about what?
VLADIMIR: 
To be back with me again.
ESTRAGON: 
Would you say so?
VLADIMIR:
Say you are, even if it’s not true.
ESTRAGON: 
What am I to say?
VLADIMIR:
Say, I am happy.
ESTRAGON: 
I am happy.
VLADIMIR: 
So am I.
ESTRAGON: 
So am I.
VLADIMIR: 
We are happy.
ESTRAGON: 
We are happy. (Silence.) What do we do now, now that we are happy?
VLADIMIR: 
Wait for Godot.
