ARCHITECT: Gee-dee up white elephant!
EMPEROR: I am the holy elephant, ergo I am pink.

EMPEROR: Yeah, yeah.
(The ARCHITECT pulls out a piece of the ground, like a box. BOTH look inside. THEY lie down on the ground.)
I’m going to get the binoculars.

(HE exits and comes back with them. THEY look to the center intensively.)
I can’t see a thing. Gee, it’s so dark!
ARCHITECT: It’s amazing, he had such a sturdy ankle. (He tries unsuccessfully to cut it with the knife. HE moves to talk to the EMPEROR’s head.)

EMPEROR: Of course. Look, I am a banana: peel me and eat me if you want to.
ARCHITECT/Mother: Sonny dearest, calm your brain. You are going mad. You are always so lonely. You should go out a little more, go to see a movie.
ARCHITECT/Judge: Let’s hear now the next witness. (Grumbling, the EMPEROR takes off the blind glasses.) I said, let’s hear now the next witness: Mrs. Olympia de Kant.
EMPEROR/Olympia de Kant: And how can I be useful?
