Transcript:
So this reviewer slept through
my Richard, did he?
Because you had guzzled so much wine
beforehand you slept like a drunken hog
through one of my finest performances!
But you will recall that
the Duke of Clarence,
and I would like you to try out
for that part, Larding,
was drowned in a butt of wine.
Look behind you, my lord.
Oh, no, no, please, please. Oh, please...
No, no! No, dont! No, please dont!
Argh!
(gasps and screams)
Excellent, Larding. Excellent.
I shall make an actor of you yet.
Argh!
