DUNYASHA [to YASHA]. What happiness it must be to live abroad!
YASHA. Of course it is; I quite agree with you. [He yawns and lights a cigar. ]
EPHIKHODOF. It stands to reason. Everything abroad has attained a certain culmination.
YASHA. That’s right.
EPHIKHODOF. I am a man of cultivation; I have studied various remarkable books, but I cannot fathom the direction of my preferences; do I want to live or do I want to shoot myself, so to speak? But in order to be ready for all contingencies, I always carry a revolver in my pocket. Here it is. [Showing revolver.]
CHARLOTTE. That’s done. I’m off. [Singing the rifle over her shoulder.] You’re a clever fellow, Ephikhódof, and very alarming. Women must fall madly in love with you. Brrr! [Going.] These clever people are all so stupid; I have no one to talk to. I am always alone, always alone; I have no friends or relations, and who I am, or why I exist, is a mystery.

[Exit slowly.]
