[PHILIP]
Look!
Grandpa’s in the paper!
“War hero Philip Schuyler loses senate seat to young upstart Aaron Burr”
Grandpa just lost his seat in the senate
[ELIZA]
Sometimes that’s how it goes
[PHILIP]
Daddy’s gonna find out any minute
[ELIZA]
I’m sure he already knows
[PHILIP]
Further down
[PHILIP & ELIZA]
Further down
[PHILIP]
Let’s meet the newest senator from New York
[ELIZA]
New York
[PHILIP & ELIZA]
Our senator
[HAMILTON]
Burr?
Since when are you a Democratic-Republican?
[BURR]
Since being one put me on the up and up again
[HAMILTON]
No one knows who you are or what you do
[BURR]
They don’t need to know me
They don’t like you
[HAMILTON]
Excuse me?
[BURR]
Oh, Wall Street thinks you’re great
You’ll always be adored by the things you create
But upstate—
[HAMILTON]
Wait
[BURR]
—people think you’re crooked
Schuyler’s seat was up for grabs so I took it
[HAMILTON]
I’ve always considered you a friend
[BURR]
I don’t see why that has to end
[HAMILTON]
You changed parties to run against my father-in-law
[BURR]
I changed parties to seize the opportunity I saw
I swear your pride will be the death of us all
Beware, it goeth before the fall
