ACT V, SCENE III, CONTINUED
Grinds-Her-Scales: My master has ordered me to make all these potions but he has taken his pestle with him. What shall I do?
Crantius Colto: Here, use mine.
Grinds-Her-Scales: Oh my! It is much bigger than the one I am used to. I am afraid!
Crantius Colto: Grasp it in both of your hands and move it gently.
Grinds-Her-Scales: Like this?
Crantius Colto: Yes, just like that my pretty.
Grinds-Her-Scales: I want to grind so much, it could take all night!
Crantius Colto: Plenty of time, my sweet. Plenty of time.
