We should wake them up! Is today not the day that Hermia must make the decision? Guard, play the horn!
The horn plays. All four lovers wake up shocked.
Good morning my friends, what are you doing here today? Has the world become so peaceful, that two rivals sleep side by side?
I have to admit, I'm not sure how I got here. To say the truth, I came here yesterday to run away from Athens with Hermia.
Stop! I’ve heard enough. Theseus, my lord, you must kill him now. Listen to him- the two of them were going to run away, robbing Demetrius of a bride, and me of the choice of who my son in law is.
Theseus, I came here yesterday to find them when beautiful Helena told me of their plan. But now, all my love for Hermia has melted. Like a child with a toy, I no longer feel love for Hermia anymore. Like a person with a sickness, I was not able to love Helena. But now, as the sickness is gone, I can show her all of my love.
