Vladimir: Say you are, even if it’s not true.
Estragon: What am I to say?
Vladimir: Say, I am happy.
Estragon: I am happy.
Vladimir: So am I.
Estragon: So am I.
Vladimir:  We are happy.

Estragon: We are happy. 

(Silence.)  What do we do now, now that we are happy?

Vladimir: Wait for Godot. 

(Estragon groans.  Silence.)

Estragon:  And if he doesn’t come.

Vladimir: (After a moment of bewilderment). 

We’ll see when the time comes.
