Fouquet:
[With contempt]
Let me congradulate you, my friend, but then you always had the most annoying habit of bringing about the things you wish to bring about. Most amusing comedy - worthy of so great a playwright!
Colbert:
As a fellow playwright you understand how narrow the line dividing comedy and tragedy.
Fouquet:
Quite right, and I'm afraid His Majesty's executioner will provide the tragedy when this charming little comedy is finished.
Colbert:
His Majesty's executioner could provide the tragedy before the comedy is finished.

Transcript:
Let me congratulate you,
my friend. But then...
you've always had a most annoying
habit of bringing about the things...
you wish to bring about.
Most amusing comedy, worthy of
so great a playwright.
As a fellow playwright, you understand
how narrow the line is dividing...
- comedy from tragedy.
- Quite right.
And I'm afraid His Majesty's executioner
will provide the tragedy...
when this charming little comedy
is finished.
His Majesty's executioner
could provide the tragedy...
before the comedy is finished.
Remember our secrets.
You and I know
the King's at Fontainebleau.
But the executioner doesn't.
One word from Philippe...
His Majesty left for Fontainebleau
an hour ago.
He'll arrive there before you do.
Say to him...
that the announcement of his betrothal
to Her Royal Highness Maria Theresa...
has cause great rejoicing
among the people. Ride fast!
His Majesty will be most anxious
to receive such news.
Pardon, Majesty, this is the cell.
They are desperate men, Majesty.
I'm quite used to dealing
with desperate men.
No, no, Sire, I insist.
I shall go first.
On your knees, dogs!
His Majesty the King!
