Estragon: [Chewing.] I asked you a question.
Estragon: Did you reply?
Vladimir: How’s the carrot?
Estragon: It’s a carrot
Vladimir: So much the better, so much the better. [Pause.] What was it you wanted to know?
Estragon: I’ve forgotten. [Chews.] That’s what annoys me. [He looks at the carrot appreciatively, dangles it between finger and thumb.] I’ll never forget this carrot.
Pozzo: Who is Godot?
Pozzo: You took me for Godot.
Estragon: Oh no, sir, not for an instant, sir.
Pozzo: Who is he?
Vladimir: Oh, he’s … he’s a kind of aquaintance.
Estragon: Nothing of the kind, we hardly know him.
Vladimir: True…we don’t know him very well…but all the same…
Estragon: Personally I wouldn’t even know him if I saw him.
Pozzo: You took me for him.
Estragon: [Recoiling before Pozzo.] That’s to say…you understand…the dusk…the strain…waiting…I confess…I imagined…for a second…
Pozzo: Waiting? So you were waiting for him?
Estragon: Does he want to replace him?
Estragon: Does he want someone to take his place or not?
Vladimir: I don’t think so.
Vladimir: I don’t know.
Estragon: Ask him.

Boy: What am I to say to Mr. Godot, sir?
Vladimir: Tell him…[he hesitates]…tell him you saw me and that…[he hesitates]…that you saw me. [Pause. Vladimir advances, the Boy recoils. Vladimir halts, the Boy halts.] You’re sure you saw me, eh, you won’t come and tell me tomorrow that you never saw me before? [Silence.].
