Brothers in exile,this isn't such a bad life. These woods are less full of danger than court was.
You are such a balanced person, Your Grace. You see the good and the bad in all things. That's why everyone respects you, and so many of us left court to be with you.
In the forest of Aden, the exiled duke and his companions are hunting for deer.
Didn't anybody see them leave?
Not a soul, my lord. But it seems possible that those girls have run off with Orlando, Celia's maid overheard the two girls speaking of him. They seemed quite impressed with the lad.
Meanwhile, back at court, the departure of Celia has just been noted by Duke Fredrick.
Send some men to the de Boyes house and have them bring Orlando here! If they can't find the youth, have them bring his brother. Celia must be returned!
Adam, what's the matter? What are you talking about?
Oh, you poor boy! I would be devastated if anything were to happen to you! Its your brother, sir. I've heard him talking.I think he wants to see you disgraced or dead.Your life is in danger if you return to that house.
Meanwhile, Orlando is returning home to his brother's house.On the road leading up to the house, he meets Adam, who seems very upset.
Where else can I possibly go?All the money I have in the world is this prize money I've just won.
Please, I beg you-don't go in there!I have some money that I've saved up over the years.I was going to use it to support myself in my old age.But I will gladly share that money with you, sir.Use it to travel to the Forest of Arden.There perhaps you can find the exiled duke your, father's dear friend.
I swear its true, sir.He's disappeared.Believe me, i would turn him over to you if I knew where to find him.I have no love for my brother.
Whether you love him or not, this brother of yours had better be found.I give you one year to find Orlando.If you don't come up with the lad by then, I fully intend to seize all your family's lands and possessions.
What's this I hear?You say you don't know where your brother Orlando is?How can this be?
Orlando departs for the Forest of Arden.Later that day, Oliver is brought before Duke Fredrick.
