Excerpt
Dorine: Mr. Tartuffe, Tartuffe: (always watchful) What do you want? Dorine: Why you hid the money in your pocket, if you were going to give them away to the needy people? Tartuffe: You are intervening in people’s affairs.. God doesn’t like this, my daughter. Dorine: Did you tell him ..the God.. that you took the money from my Master.. Mr. Orgon? Tartuffe: Why did you come here? What do you want? … And ..... why your blouse is blatantly open .. revealing so much of your breast? Dorine: Do you like it?. (unbuttons another button, he retreats back without turning his sight away from her breast) this is a sin .. Dorine: Why? Tartuffe: because God forbids woman to reveal parts of her body. Dorine: Do you think, Mr. Tartuffe that God cares about the breasts of the maids?
