ENDGAME

CLOV:

There are so many terrible things.

HAMM:

No, no, there are not so many now.

(Pause.)

Clov!

CLOV:

Yes.

HAMM:

Do you not think this has gone on long enough?

CLOV:

Yes!

(Pause.)

What?

HAMM:

This… this… thing.

CLOV:

I’ve always thought so.

(Pause.)

You not?

HAMM (gloomily):

Then it’s a day like any other day.

CLOV:

As long as it lasts.

(Pause.)

All life long the same inanities.

HAMM:

I can’t leave you.

CLOV:

I know. And you can’t follow me.

(Pause.)
