Marcellus?

Is that you?
Where you been, buddy?
Haven’t seen you round the palace lately.
How’s the wife?
Really? How soon?

I didn’t realize you two knew each other
O and this guy –
What up, Marcellus?
(What’s this guy’s name again?) 
What are you doing on night shift?
My dad would never have asked you to do that.
Oh, right, the war preparations.
Oh, Marcellus –
Things might have been so different
Mightn’t they?
If I were on the throne now –
What am I saying?
If we had not lost my father –
If I’m wishing – I might as well wish myself that far back.
