Mikado. (looking at paper) Dear, dear, dear! this is very tiresome.
(to Ko-Ko) My poor fellow, in your anxiety to carry out my wishes you
have beheaded the heir to the throne of Japan!
Ko-Ko. I beg to offer an unqualified apology.
Pooh-Bah. I desire to associate myself with that expression of regret.
Pitti-Sing. We really hadn't the least notion
Mikado. Of course you hadn't. How could you? Come, come, my good
fellow, don't distress yourself it was no fault of yours. If a man
of exalted rank chooses to disguise himself as a Second Trombone, he
must take the consequences. It really distresses me to see you take
on so. I've no doubt he thoroughly deserved all he got. (They rise.)
Ko-Ko. We are infinitely obliged to your Majesty
Pitti-Sing. Much obliged, your Majesty.
Pooh-Bah. Very much obliged, your Majesty.
Mikado. Obliged? not a bit. Don't mention it. How could you tell?
Pooh-Bah. No, of course we couldn't tell who the gentleman really was.
Pitti-Sing. It wasn't written on his forehead, you know.
Ko-Ko. It might have been on his pocket-handkerchief, but Japanese
don't use pocket-handkerchiefs! Ha! ha! ha!
Mikado. Ha! ha! ha! (to Katisha) I forget the punishment for
compassing the death of the Heir Apparent.
Ko-Ko, Pooh-Bah & Pitti-Sing. Punishment. (They drop down on their
Mikado. Yes. Something lingering, with boiling oil in it, I fancy.
Something of that sort. I think boiling oil occurs in it, but I'm not
sure. I know it's something humorous, but lingering, with either
boiling oil or melted lead. Come, come, don't fret I'm not a bit
Ko-Ko. (in abject terror) If your Majesty will accept our assurance,
we had no idea
Mikado. Of course
Pitti-Sing. I knew nothing about it.
Pooh-Bah. I wasn't there.
Mikado. That's the pathetic part of it. Unfortunately, the fool of an
Act says "compassing the death of the Heir Apparent." There's not a
word about a mistake
Ko-Ko, Pitti-Sing & Pooh-Bah. No!
Mikado. Or not knowing
Mikado. Or having no notion
Mikado. Or not being there
Mikado. There should be, of course
Ko-Ko, Pitti-Sing & Pooh-Bah. Yes!
Mikado. But there isn't.
Ko-Ko, Pitti-Sing & Pooh-Bah. Oh!
Mikado. That's the slovenly way in which these Acts are always drawn.
However, cheer up, it'll be all right. I'll have it altered next
session. Now, let's see about your execution will after luncheon
suit you? Can you wait till then?
Ko-Ko, Pitti-Sing & Pooh-Bah. Oh, yes we can wait till then!
Mikado. Then we'll make it after luncheon.
Pooh-Bah. I don't want any lunch.
Mikado. I'm really very sorry for you all, but it's an unjust world,
and virtue is triumphant only in theatrical performances.
