More months passed and the Farmer and his Wife became quite rich.

Farmer: We are now quite rich. Thanks to the Goose.

Farmer: How?

Wife: Think. We don’t know how the Goose lays the golden eggs. But we know where they are coming from.

Farmer: We do? Where?

Wife: From the Goose’s stomach, of course. So its stomach must be full of golden eggs.

Farmer: Perhaps. I don’t know.

Wife: Can’t you see? We can become really rich all at once.

Farmer: What do you mean?

Wife: Cut open the Goose’s stomach. Take out all of the golden eggs inside.

Farmer: You mean kill the Goose?

Wife: Yes. A golden egg a day is too slow. I want to become really rich. Now!

Farmer: But it has given us a golden egg every day. It made us rich. We can’t kill it now.

Wife: Why not? Don’t you want to become richer faster?

Farmer: Yes, but we are rich right now.

 

Wife: Yes. But I want to become really really rich. I want to live in the city. Bring the knife from the kitchen.

Farmer: If you wish, dear.

The Farmer brings a sharp knife from the kitchen. The Goose sees the knife and starts crying and runs away. The Wife hides the knife behind her back.

Goose: Quack, quack!

Wife: What’s the matter, Goose? I have something delicious for you.

Goose: Quack, quack!

Wife: it’s running away! Go and catch it!

Farmer: Okay, dear. Come here, Goose.

Goose: Quack, quack!

Wife: Catch it, catch it!

Farmer: I got it!

Goose: Quack, quack!

The Farmer catches the Goose and the Wife is about to cut open its stomach.

Wife: We will be really rich soon. How many eggs will there be?

Farmer: I don’t know. But there must be many. I’m getting curious now. Hurry up. Cut it open.

Wife: Okay, here I go.

Goose: (scream)Q-U-A-C-K!!!

The Goose’s stomach is cut open. The Farmer and his Wife look surprised.

Farmer: Where are the golden eggs?

Wife: I don’t know. There must be some inside. Look carefully!

Farmer: There are none! What have we done?

Wife: No golden eggs?

Farmer: Poor Goose. We were too greedy. So we will become poor again.

Wife: Poor us!

Farmer: Boo-hoo-hoo.
