    1. Count Rugen: Are you coming down into the pit? Westly's got his strength back, I'm starting him on the machine tonight.
    2. Prince Humperdinck: Tyron. You know how much I love watching you work, but I've got my country's 500th anniversary to plan, my wedding to arrange, my wife to murder, and Gilda to blame for it. I'm swamped.
