Sergey: Katya!
Katerina: Seryozha, so you've come?
Sergey: Katya, don't be angry, forgive me.
Katerina: Seryozha, Seryozha, you're all I have, you know, my love,
and've hurt me cruelly, Seryozha!
Sergey: Katya, forgive me, I'm in a bad way...
This is the last time we'll see each other.
Katerina: Why? Seryozha?
Sergey: I'm going to town,
to the hospital,
the fetters have rubbed my leg so sore,
the pain's intolerable.
