  • At a feast, a drunken man maundering in his cups cries out that I am not my father's son!
  • Oedipus goes to Polybos and Merope to confirm that he is their son. Polybos and Merope get angry over the question and insist that he is their son. 
  • The next day I visited My father and mother, and questioned them. They stormed, Calling it all the slanderous rant of a fool. 
  • Oedipus runs to a shrine because he has suspicions that Polybos and Merope weren't his true parents. However, he was told that he was to marry his own mother and murder his father.
