Subject: Re: Merchant of Venice in a Las Vegas Setting
LEAMAS: We counted on Fiedler, I must admit, on his hatred for Mundt.
Why the hell shouldn't he hate Mundt? Mundt hates him. [...]
FIEDLER: Save the girl. Save the Jews. Save my Christian soul!
Don't you realise what he has done?
He's saved Mundt, and Mundt is London's man!
COURT: Comrade Fiedler will be held in custody.
The hearing is closed. [...]
Comrade Mundt is reinstated.
