PHILLIP:
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

PHILLIP:
Daddy’s gonna find out any minute

ELIZA:
I’m sure he already knows

PHILLIP:
Further down

PHILLIP & ELIZA:
Further down

PHILLIP:
Let’s meet the newest senator from New York

ELIZA:
New York

PHILLIP & 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
