Let’s withdraw, my lord.

One of my favorite parts of A Midwinters Tale is when one actor comforts another’s stage anxiety by saying something like, “Whenever I forget my lines. I just say – ‘Crouch we here awhile and lurk.’”  I love this.

And it seems to me that “Let’s withdraw, my lord” might serve in the same way. You know, you don’t know what you’re meant to do anymore. So you just say this and pull the other person back behind a curtain with you for a moment.
Either something else will happen or you can go back there, take a minute to regroup, figure out what in the world is meant to happen next.
