Tartuffe Act 4, Scene 7 Summary

  • Tartuffe comes in, ready to go. Everything is clear. He does not see Orgon.
  • Orgon comes out, guns blazing. Well, not literally. He starts chewing Tartuffe out, and claims to have "long suspected" him (4.7.2). It seems Tartuffe doesn't have a monopoly on lying.
  • When Orgon tells Tartuffe to hit the road, Tartuffe turns the tables. Before running he declares, "This house belongs to me, I'll have you know."
