Leopold
I can see I'm not going to talk you out of this easily. I urge you to reconsider your decision, my son.

Wolfgang
You can have no objection whatever to raise – and indeed you do not raise any. For Constanze is a respectable honest girl of good parentage, and I am able to support her. We love each other – and want each other. All that you have said and can possible say to me on the subject can only be well-meaning advice which, however fine and good it may be, is no longer applicable to a man who has gone so far with a girl. In such a case nothing can be postponed. It is far better for him to put his affairs in order and act like an honest fellow!

Leopold
Whatever. I'm still not letting you marry this girl.

"Modestly and quietly?" You were just boasting about your opera as if it were better than Vivaldi and Scarlatti. I've seen the original you sent me, and you're blowing it out of proportion.

Leopold
What?!? You have to be kidding. The Haffner girl's marriage isn't going to wait for you to finish the symphony!

Wolfgang
I assume you received my last letter. You will be surprised and disappointed to find that this contains only the first Allegro--

Wolfgang
I thought
(judging by my own feelings)
that you would hardly be able to open the parcel for excitement and eagerness to see your son’s work, which, far from merely pleasing, is making such a sensation in Vienna that people refuse to hear anything else!

Wolfgang
So the whole world declares that by my boasting and criticizing I have made enemies of the professors of music and many others! What world pray? Presumably the world of Salzburg, for everyone in Vienna can see and hear enough to be convinced of the contrary.

Leopold
Maybe that's because nothing else is playing. You know the world is sick of your attitude.

I thought
(judging by my own feelings)
that you would hardly be able to open the parcel for excitement and eagerness to see your son’s work, which, far from merely pleasing, is making such a sensation in Vienna that people refuse to hear anything else, so that the theatre is always packed.

Wolfgang
We intend to live very modestly and quietly and yet we shall be happy.
toddball added dialogue in "This is your first scene." on 05/24/2011 [view]
Leopold
So what you're saying is, either you love this girl, and therefore can't be trusted with your finances; or you can manage your finances, and you don't actually love her. Either way it sounds like you shouldn't marry her.

Wolfgang
Believe me, it is just as easy to live in expensive Vienna as anywhere else. It all depends on economy and good management, which cannot be expected from a young fellow, particularly if he is love.

[ASIDE] Oh no, here he goes again.

[ASIDE] Oh

Wolfgang
Well, because most people think that we are already married. Her mother gets very much annoyed when she hears these rumors, and, as for the poor girl and myself, we are tormented to death. This state of affairs can be remedied so easily.
toddball added dialogue in "This is your first scene." on 05/24/2011 [view]
Leopold
So that's the real reason why you only sent me the Allegro. But why are in this state? I thought you wanted to marry this girl. Mind you, I still don't approve.

Wolfgang
[ASIDE] He's just stubborn because he doesn't know her.--I realize that it is absolutely necessary for my own honour and that of my girl, and for the sake of my health and spirits.

You can't be serious. You hardly know this girl! You've only known her for a year now!

Do not suppose that it is just for the sake of getting married. If that were the only reason, I would gladly wait.

...I implore you by all that you hold dear in the world to give your consent to my marriage with my dear Constanze.

Leopold
[as WOLFGANG is speaking, ASIDE] Oh good, more on his opera. I've heard all this before. Now that he has one opera out he thinks he's the next Bach or something. He'll be dead before he's 40 if he keeps up this kind of attitude.
toddball added dialogue in "This is your first scene." on 05/24/2011 [view]
Wolfgang
My opera was given yesterday for the third time in honor of all the Nannerls and won the greatest applause; and again, in spite of the frightful heat, the theatre was packed. It was to be given again next Friday, but I have protested against this, for I do not want it to become hackneyed. I must say that people are absolutely infatuated with this opera. Indeed it does one good to win such approbation.

Leopold
I suppose that's all right, then.

Wolfgang
On Wednesday I shall send two minuets, the Andante, and the last movement. If I can manage to do so, I shall send a march too.

It's only for wind instruments.

Couldn't you just use something from this symphony?

Wolfgang
It has been quite impossible to do more for you, for I have had to compose in a great hurry a serenade
