[Claudius receives a letter with a small box
: It's from Herod. Calpurnia
: What does he say? Claudius
: Oh, it's written from J-Jerusalem. Calpurnia
: Read it to me; his letters are so amusing. Claudius
] "My dear old friend, what is all this I hear about your living in three rooms in the p-poor quarter of town? Is it serious?"
: "Why did you not write to me? Is it that absurd p-pride of yours? Well, I shall attend to that shortly. Meanwhile, knowing how loath you are to accept m-money, and being the only practical friend you ever had, I enclose a little p-present for you. Please make proper use of it. Herod." Calpurnia
: What is it? It seems very small. Claudius
: Hnh, I don't know.
[Claudius opens the box. It is a set of four dice
: Well, I don't think that's very generous.
[Claudius shakes the dice and rolls them - twenty-four, all sixes
: Venus! Oh, Claudius, I think your luck is changing.
[Claudius rolls them again - all sixes again
: I'm sure it's an omen.
[a third time - all sixes yet again
: Those dice are crooked. You can't possibly use them.
[Claudius rolls them a fourth time. They both break up laughing
: Ah, dear Herod. How I miss him.
