The famous window-wooing scene for Roxane’s kiss, Christian attempts
CYRANO (picking up stones and throwing them at the window): Some pebbles! wait awhile!
ROXANE (half-opening the casement): Who calls me?
ROXANE: Who's that?
ROXANE (disdainfully): Oh! you?
CHRISTIAN: I would speak with you.
CYRANO (under the balcony--to Christian): Good. Speak soft and low.
ROXANE: No, you speak stupidly!
CHRISTIAN: Oh, pity me!
ROXANE: No! you love me no more!
CHRISTIAN (prompted by Cyrano): You say--Great Heaven!
I love no more?--when--I--love more and more!
ROXANE (who was about to shut the casement, pausing): Hold! 'tis a trifle better! ay, a trifle!
CHRISTIAN (same play): Love grew apace, rocked by the anxious beating. . .
Of this poor heart, which the cruel wanton boy. . .
Took for a cradle!
