- The Mouth of Always
- The Mouth of Seldom
- The Mouth of Never
Always: Breathe, think, own, allow.
Seldom: Drink, make, feed, cough.
Never: No, no, no! You've both got it all wrong; those items belong to me and me only!
Seldom: I think not! --
Never: Of course not! "Think" is mine, "Think" is never!
Always: Now hold on, I payed good money for those items!
Seldom: May I...
Always and Never: No!
Never: Now, we'll settle this: a game!
Always: Chess, perhaps?
Never: A wise choice!
(Seldom gives up, exits room)
Never: Now that the fool is gone,
(reveals forked tongue)
We can begin!
Always: No, no. I think I will leave now...You may keep our items. That tongue...
Never: Ha! So be it. I am wealthy, so wealthy!
(cracks a wide, strong smile)
