Ismene: Oh Antigone, you're so rash -- I'm so afraid for you! Antigone: Don't fear for me. Set your own life in order.
Ismene: So fiery -- and it ought to chill your heart. Antigone: I know I please where I must please the most.
Ismene: Then don't, at least blurt this out to anyone. Keep it a secret. I'll join you in that, I promise. Antigone: Dear god, shout it from the rooftops. I'll hate you the more for silence -- tell the world!
Ismene: My poor sister, things have some to this, who am I to make or mend them, tell me, what good am I to you? Antigone: Decide. Will you share the labor, share the work?
Antigone: I thought so. That's why I brought you here, past the gates, so you could hear in private. Ismene: What's the matter? Trouble, clearly… you sound so dark, so grim.
