Gogo (Estragon) and Didi (Vladimir)



Estragon: [Chewing.] I asked you a question.
Vladimir: Ah!
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.



I am Pozzo!

I am Pozzo!

Pozzo: Who is Godot?
Estragon: 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?

Vladimir: I don’t think so.
Estragon: What?
Vladimir: I don’t know.
Estragon: Ask him.

Vladimir with The Boy

Vladimir with The Boy

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.].
