As thus, “Cannot you stay till I eat my porridge?”

Scene: The Kitchen. Yorick is at the table, eating porridge. Yorick’s brother, Borick, rushes in.
BORICK: Yorick! Come quickly! The mare’s giving birth!

YORICK: Cannot you stay till I eat my porridge?
(laughter)

BORICK: But your wife is with her and she’s fallen, she needs us to carry her to the surgeon.

YORICK: Cannot you stay till I eat my porridge?
(more laughter)

BORICK: The stablehand was giving her a look I wouldn’t trust my cat with.

YORICK: Cannot you stay till I eat my porridge?
(more laughter)

BORICK: Alright, then, give us a spoon.
