THE MANAGER (determining to make fun of him). Ah, excellent! Then you'll be saying next that you, with this comedy of yours that you brought here to act, are truer and more real than I am.

THE FATHER. Why, I thought you'd understand that from the beginning.
THE MANAGER. More real than I?
THE FATHER. If your reality can change from one day to another....
