that's the idea, let's abuse each other

From Beckett's Waiting for Godot.

ESTRAGON:
That's the idea, let's abuse each other.

They turn, move apart, turn again and face each other.

VLADIMIR:
Moron!

ESTRAGON:
Vermin!

VLADIMIR:
Abortion!

ESTRAGON:
Morpion!

VLADIMIR:
Sewer-rat!

ESTRAGON:
Curate!

VLADIMIR:
Cretin!

ESTRAGON:
(with finality). Crritic!

VLADIMIR:
Oh!

He wilts, vanquished, and turns away.


In a related development, my review of Writers' Bloc has been generating some heat and dust.

Apart from the comments on my original post, there is a very entertaining discussion comment thread I've been following.

It's been hilarious reading so far, occasionally even flattering.

Comments however, are still welcome.
On this webspace, or the next.

In the absence of intelligent argument, I will settle for entertainment .

In true Beckettian fashion, I may be guilty of a misquotation. :-)
