1

I,5,621

First Servant. Where's Potpan, that he helps not to take away? He
shift a trencher? he scrape a trencher!

Second Servant. When good manners shall lie all in one or two men's
hands and they unwashed too, 'tis a foul thing.


2

I,5,628

First Servant. Away with the joint-stools, remove the
court-cupboard, look to the plate. Good thou, save
me a piece of marchpane; and, as thou lovest me, let
the porter let in Susan Grindstone and Nell.
Antony, and Potpan!

Second Servant. Ay, boy, ready.


3

I,5,631

First Servant. You are looked for and called for, asked for and
sought for, in the great chamber.

Second Servant. We cannot be here and there too. Cheerly, boys; be
brisk awhile, and the longer liver take all.


4

IV,2,2498

Capulet. So many guests invite as here are writ.
[Exit First Servant]
Sirrah, go hire me twenty cunning cooks.

Second Servant. You shall have none ill, sir; for I'll try if they
can lick their fingers.


5

IV,2,2501

Capulet. How canst thou try them so?

Second Servant. Marry, sir, 'tis an ill cook that cannot lick his
own fingers: therefore he that cannot lick his
fingers goes not with me.


6

IV,4,2637

Capulet. Make haste, make haste.
[Exit First Servant]
Sirrah, fetch drier logs:
Call Peter, he will show thee where they are.

Second Servant. I have a head, sir, that will find out logs,
And never trouble Peter for the matter.
