12 chairs in a horseshoe pattern.

Paranoccio: Where's the King? Are the rest of you staring at me? What do they have? What do they do? When I am doing nothing or worse are they just sailing through? Everyday this torment mounts my soul. I cannot help but think that they are trying to gain control. I really have to know-- for if I can't the possibilities which could unfold...

Oblesse: Wonderful-- and I mean that. Take your seat and rest.

Paranoccio: I'm afraid that isn't possible but I'll try my best.

no winners

I'll have the last laugh, at the foot of your grave.
He who laughs last will leave you there alone, laughing.
You will never see the end of your plans.
Who is right?
This is the test: He who laughs last, laughs best.

My friend, I won't desert you.
I will be by your graveside, as you stood idly by my side
when I was choking, beaten down.
You laughed at me then. But this is the final test:
He who laughs last, laughs best.

X2 cobra

She said she saw him in the newspaper. Dreams of the river and the day they'd swim. Promised to return in the way of light. It occupies her time even at midday.

He saw a woman dressing in front of a mirror when he was young. In his thoughts he saw many dresses to cover her. He covered his eyes but slowly.

He's in a work camp now. Strike was broken. They ran pictures of it in the newspaper. He remembers back to that day with the woman and the mirror.

He steals some sheets to make a dress and a shawl. He sneaks out of the camp with the wives on visiting day. But he can't take the dress off now from shame.

He's a free agent, he travels along in his dress aiding striking workers across the country. She waits for him to return.

He dangles from a girder on an electrical tower. His shawl whips sideways in the wind. He's wearing a mask, a mask representing a mouse.

Why is he wearing the mask? We already know he wears a dress, that's in the premise.

Why is he hanging from that tower? Is he in another scrape with the boss man?

Perhaps he's depressed from the shame of sneaking out of the work camp in a dress?

Will he ever get back home to her?
