The Best of All Possible Worlds DR. PANGLOSS
Let us review
Lesson eleven!

STUDENTS:
Paragraph two
Axion seven



PANGLOSS:
Once one dismisses
The rest of all possible worlds
One finds that this is
The best of all possible worlds!

STUDENTS:
Once one dismisses
The rest of all possible worlds
One finds that this is
The best of all possible worlds!

PANGLOSS:
Pray classify
Pigeons and camels

MAXIMILLIAN:
Pigeons can fly!

PAQUETTE:
Camels are mammals!

PANGLOSS:
There is a reason
For everything under the sun!

CANDIDE:
There is a reason
For everything under the sun!

MAXIMILLIAN:
Objection!
What about snakes?

PANGLOSS:
Snakes!
'Twas snake that tempted mother Eve
Because of snake we now believe
That though depraved
We can be saved
>From hellfire and damnation
(Because of snake's temptation!)

If snake had not seduced our lot
And primed us for salvation
Jehova could not pardon all
The sins that we call cardinal
Involving bed and bottle!

ALL
Now onto Aristotle!

PANGLOSS
Mankind is one
All men are brothers!

STUDENTS:
As you'd have done
Do unto others!

PANGLOSS
It's understood in
This best of all possible worlds--

MAXIMILLIAN
All's for the good in
This best of all possible worlds!

CANDIDE:
Objection!
What about war?

PANGLOSS:
War!
Though war may seem a bloody curse
It is a blessing in reverse
When canon roar
Both rich and poor
By danger are united!
(Till every wrong is righted!)

Philosophers make evident
The point that I have cited
'Tis war makes equal -- as it were --
The noble and the commoner
Thus war improves relations!

ALL:
Now onto conjugations!

PANGLOSS:
Amo, amas,
Amat, amamus!

STUDENTS:
Amo, amas,
Amat, amamus!

PANGLOSS:
Proving that this is
The best of all possible worlds
With love and kisses [blows a kiss]
The best of all possible worlds!

STUDENTS:
Proving that this is
The best of all possible worlds
With love and kisses [blows a kiss]
The best of all possible worlds!

PANGLOSS
Quod erat demunstrandum!
QED!
Amo, amas,
Amat amamus!

MAXIMILLIAN: (overlapping)
Quod erat demunstrandum!
QED!
Amo, amas!
Quod erat demunstrandum!

PAQUETTE: (overlapping)
Quod erat demunstrandum!
QED!
Amo, amas!

CANDIDE: (overlapping)
Quod erat demunstrandum!
QED!

CUNEGONDE: (overlapping)
Quod erat demunstrandum!

ALL:
Quod erat demunstrandum
In this best of all
Possible, possible, possible worlds!
Quod erat demunstrandum!
Q!
E!
D!!!!!!!!!!!
