Scene XV

Estelle makes a final effort to find a way out of the unbearable situation in which she finds herself. She picks up a knife and stabs Inez several times. Inez, however, reminds her that someone who is dead cannot be killed again. Realizing that she is stuck forever in her situation, Estelle drops the knife. Inez begins to laugh at the absurdity of the situation, and soon the other two join in the laughter. As they slump onto their sofas, they grow quiet and gaze at one another. The play ends with Garcin saying, "Well, well let's get on with it."


Notes

In the final scene, the three characters accept the absurdity of their situation. Filled with frustration, Estelle picks up a knife and stabs Inez. Of course, a dead person cannot be killed again. When Inez reminds her of this, the three of them burst into laughter. As they slump onto their sofas, Garcin says that there is nothing to do but "get on with it."
