CHUBUKOV: What’s the matter? What are you shouting for?
 
NATALYA: Papa, please tell this gentleman who owns Oxen Meadows, we or he?
 
CHUBUKOV: [to Lomov] Darling, the Meadows are ours!
 
LOMOV: But, please, Stepan Stepanovitch, how can they be yours? Do be a reasonable man! My aunt’s grandmother gave the Meadows for the temporary and free use of your grandfather’s peasants. The peasants used the land for forty years and got accustomed to it as if it was their own, when it happened that...
 
CHUBUKOV: Excuse me, my precious. You forget just this, that the peasants didn’t pay your grandmother and all that, because the Meadows were in dispute, and so on. And now everybody knows that they’re ours. It means that you haven’t seen the plan.
Explanation:
 
Chubukov arrived as Lomov and Natalya were shouting at one other and inquired about what was happening. Natalya then requested information from her father on Oxen Meadows' ownership. Additionally, Chubukov informed Lomov that the Oxen Meadows are theirs, just like Natalya said. Chubukov's allegation was contested by Lomov, who urged him to use rational thinking. Then Chubukov interrupted him while he was still giving him his version of the events involving their grandparents.
 
Chubukov then refuted Lomov's claim by pointing out that Oxen Meadows' standing as disputed land was the only reason the peasants were permitted to use it at no cost. But now everyone can see that the Chubukovs are the true owners. He even accused Lomov of failing to notice the plan.
