Kreon: it would be stupid for me to try to overthrow you. I have all of the luxuries of a king, but I do not have the stress.
In the beginning, Kreon denies plotting against Oedipus. Oedipus then goes on repeating his accusations against Kreon
You are a bad friend that is conspiring against me, your king!
This Is well said and a prudent man would ponder it. Judgements too quickly formed dangerous
Kreon and the chorus leader both agree that Oedipus is being irrational because of his anger. Oedipus still does not believe Kreon.
When you take good man for bad,bad man for good. A good friend thrown aside.
Ah believe it Oedipus! In the name of gods, respect this oath of his for my sake,for the sake of these people here!
Iokaste then comes in. She is Oedipus's wife and Kreon's sister. She stops the fighting and sends Kreon away. Iokatse tells Oedipus to believe Kreon.
