MENAECHMUS SOSICLES
To whom is this woman addressing herself?
EROTIUM
Why, I'm talking to yourself.
MENAECHMUS SOSICLES
What business have I ever had with you?
EROTIUM
Menny, as cupid has demanded we are fated to be together. You alone fill my soul with such love and happiness.

MENAECHMUS SOSICLES
Even still do I deny it. Listen, I never had a wife, nor have I ever set my foot here within New York since I was born. I had breakfast in the business class of a plane; then I came down this street, and here I met you.
EROTIUM
See that now; I'm undone, wretched creature that I am! Now please don’t leave off by making fun of me, and step this way with me.
MENAECHMUS SOSICLES
... madam, you are looking for some other person, I don’t know whom, but it is not me.
EROTIUM
Don't I know you, Menaechmus who was born in New Jersey where governor Christie reigned, and after that attended Boston College and were in the Carroll School?
MENAECHMUS SOSICLES
madam, what you say is true.
MENAECHMUS SOSICLES

I’ll go along with it for some entertainment and perhaps I will be able to take some advantage of this situation.To Erotium hahaha I am sorry I was just kidding before. I was afraid someone might hear us and tell my wife about the fur coat. Now if you please madam, let’s go in doors.
EROTIUM
why my love, lets go enjoy the breakfast.
MENAECHMUS SOSICLES
That would be splendid. But about the fur coat, I would be afraid if my wife were to ever see you wearing it around and recognize it instantly. I have a great tailor who could alter and fix it up for you to really bring out your figure.

MENAECHMUS SOSICLES
Tell her that I'll attend to both of these and anything else that she shall wish.
MAID-SERVANT of Erotium.
Do you know what this rollex is?
MENAECHMUS SOSICLES
I don't know, I only know it’s made of gold.
MAID-SERVANT of Erotium.
This is the same one that you once said that you had secretly stolen out of the closet from your wife.
MENAECHMUS SOSICLES
Oh my god, I’ve never done such a thing.
MAID-SERVANT of Erotium.
Don’t you remember it?
MENAECHMUS SOSICLES
Not in the least.
