Peter: Oh, my Jesus!

Serena: Oh, doctor Jesus, what make you ain' lay yo' han' on dis po'

Lily: Oh, my father!

Serena: And chase de devil out of her down a steep place into de sea
like you used to do time an' time again.

Porgy: Time an' time again. Oh, my Jesus!

Serena: Lif' dis po' cripple up out of de dus'!

By five o'clock dat woman goin' be well.
(It is now full morning and Catfish Row is full
of activity with street vendors calling.)
