Recitative

NICK
Tom Rakewell?

TOM
(surprised)
I...

NICK
I seek Tom Rakewell with a message.
Is this his house?

TOM
No, not his house.
But you have found him straying
in his thoughts and footsteps.
In short...

NICK
You are he?

TOM
(laughing)
Yes, surely.
Tom Rakewell at your service.

NICK
Well, well.
Nick Shadow, sir,
and at your service.
For, surely as you bear your name,
I bear you a bright future.
You recall an uncle, sir?

TOM
An uncle? My parents never mentioned one.

NICK
They quarrelled, I believe, sir.
Yet he...
sir, have you friends?

TOM
More than a friend.
The daughter of this house and ruler of my heart.

NICK
A lover's fancy and a lovely thought.
Then call her.
Indeed, let all who will,
make their joy here of your glad tidings.
