Part 1, Act 2, Scenes 4-7 Summary

Scene 4. Nicholas tells us that he went to visit Sir Matthew Pupker (the muffin politician from the first scene) in the hopes of getting a job. Pupker is distracted by a delegation from his political district, which presents him with a list of complaints about the way he does his job. Pupker dodges every concern, and ultimately refuses to resign when asked. The delegation leaves, and Nicholas is finally alone with him. When Pupker discovers that Nicholas is related to Ralph, he sees him in a more positive light and begins a long list of all the duties Nicholas will have to undertake. The list sounds to Nicholas a lot like things Pupker should be doing himself, but when he asks what Pupker will be doing while he's doing all the work, Pupker loses his temper and kicks him out.
