First, Pyrumus must draw a sword to kill himself;which ladies cannot abide
I believe we must leave the killing out, when all is done
To see a noise that he heard....
Bless thee, Bottom, bless thee!
The Mechanics (amateur street actors from Athens) gather near where Titania (the fairy Queen) is sleeping in the forest to discuss and rehearse the upcoming play... Starveling and Quince, two of the actors, discuss what will happen in it.
LA LA LA LA LA....
They start rehearsing and Puck (the fairy kings jester) walks in while Quince says his line. Then Bottom returns with a Donkey on his head, that Puck put on him as a joke... Everyone is in shock
I swear, I love thee!
Me thinks, mistress, you should have little reason for that...
Peasblossom, Cobweb, Moth and Mustardseed. Be kind and courteous to this gentleman
Bottom doesn't know what has happened, and everyone gets so scared they run away screaming, and blessing him.
I cry your worships, merry heartily
Bottom still doesn't know what is going on and thinks they are playing a trick on him, so he begins to sing as a method to calm himself. His singing awakes Titania from her sleep.
Due to Oberon's jealousy, he put a potion on Titania's eyes which made her fall in love with the first person she sees when she wakes up. Of course, the first person she saw was Bottom. She instantly tells him she loves him, but he says that she has no reason to.
Titania then brings Bottom to her fairies, and they serve him like a king. They then introduce themselves, and Bottom compliments them and worships them as he has never been treated so well.
