Please, you must go out with me. I can fool a simple carpenter.
There will be a great flood!
A carpenter has a beautiful wife that he is very protective of. The carpenter rents out a room in his house to earn extra money.
Please kiss me.
The scholar whom the room is rented out to gains a liking to Alisoun. Nicholas asked Alisoun to began an affair.
Nicholas tells John about a vision he had. He tells John that God will send a great flood two times greater than the flood Noah faced. John falls for the trick and listens to Nicholas's solution to hang from a bathtub.
The parish clerk asks for a kiss. Alisoun sticks her butt out the window and he kisses her bum in the dark. The clerk then puts his bum out as a prank and the parish places a red-hot coulter on his bum.
John hears the noise and cuts the rope. His tub crashes to the ground and makes a ruckus.
The townspeople made fun of John for making up a story about a flood and making such a great ruckus.
