Yes, come. Come to Babylon. I await you. Your only loving son.
For the men. Bagoas.
Can you prop me up a little? It catches me. I've never been so idle.
The fleet will never get out by spring. I must go.
You have given me all. Bagoas.
And you have given me...the happiest times of my life, Iskander.
Happy? What is happy?
While in your mind and body are stretched to breaking...you have no thought beyond the next.
And you look back then...and there it was, happiness. In the doing, never the thinking.
Still, you have made me so happy.
It is done, Bagoas. It is done.
