Edwina Lionheart:
It's all right, sir. You're among friends, sir.
Hector Snipe:
Thank you. I was beginning to get a bit nervous.
Edward Lionheart:
We were just rehearsing Troilus and Cressida. Specifically the scene where Hector, thinking he's among friends, is unexpectedly killed by them.
Hector Snipe:
Lionheart, I came here for an interview, not a lecture on Shakespeare. Now tell me the amazing story of your resurrection.
Edward Lionheart:
It's a grave tale, Snipe. But I think you can rise to the occasion.
[Snipe is catapulted onto the stage, where the tramps begin to attack him]

Transcript:
Oh, thank you, my dear man.
I was getting a little bit nervous.
We were rehearsing Troilus and Cressida.
The scene where Hector,
believing he was among friends,
was brutally murdered by them
without warning,
and his body dragged from
the battlefield tied to a horses tail.
Lionheart, I came here for an interview,
not for a lecture on Shakespeare.
Now, tell us this remarkable story
of your resurrection.
Its a grave tale, Snipe,
and difficult to write,
but I am sure
you can rise to the occasion.
Stand back! Get out of the way!
The dragon wing of night
oerspreads the earth,
My half-suppd spear,
that frankly would have fed,
Pleased with this dainty bait,
thus goes to bed.
(evil laughter)
In the midst of life, we are in death.
