1

I,1,4

And I in going, madam, weep o'er my father's death
anew: but I must attend his majesty's command, to...

2

I,1,31

What is it, my good lord, the king languishes of?

3

I,1,33

I heard not of it before.

4

I,1,56

Madam, I desire your holy wishes.

5

I,1,74

[To HELENA] The best wishes that can be forged in
your thoughts be servants to you! Be comfortable...

6

I,2,264

My thanks and duty are your majesty's.

7

I,2,290

His good remembrance, sir,
Lies richer in your thoughts than on his tomb;...

8

I,2,315

Some six months since, my lord.

9

I,2,321

Thank your majesty.

10

II,1,623

I am commanded here, and kept a coil with
'Too young' and 'the next year' and 'tis too early.'

11

II,1,626

I shall stay here the forehorse to a smock,
Creaking my shoes on the plain masonry,...

12

II,1,633

I grow to you, and our parting is a tortured body.

13

II,1,646

Stay: the king.

14

II,1,656

And I will do so.

15

II,3,899

And so 'tis.

16

II,3,1005

My wife, my liege! I shall beseech your highness,
In such a business give me leave to use...

17

II,3,1010

Yes, my good lord;
But never hope to know why I should marry her.

18

II,3,1013

But follows it, my lord, to bring me down
Must answer for your raising? I know her well:...

19

II,3,1046

I cannot love her, nor will strive to do't.

20

II,3,1068

Pardon, my gracious lord; for I submit
My fancy to your eyes: when I consider...

21

II,3,1079

I take her hand.

22

II,3,1169

Undone, and forfeited to cares for ever!

23

II,3,1171

Although before the solemn priest I have sworn,
I will not bed her.

24

II,3,1174

O my Parolles, they have married me!
I'll to the Tuscan wars, and never bed her.

25

II,3,1178

There's letters from my mother: what the import is,
I know not yet.

26

II,3,1188

It shall be so: I'll send her to my house,
Acquaint my mother with my hate to her,...

27

II,3,1196

Go with me to my chamber, and advise me.
I'll send her straight away: to-morrow...

28

II,5,1266

Yes, my lord, and of very valiant approof.

29

II,5,1268

And by other warranted testimony.

30

II,5,1270

I do assure you, my lord, he is very great in
knowledge and accordingly valiant.

31

II,5,1283

[Aside to PAROLLES] Is she gone to the king?

32

II,5,1285

Will she away to-night?

33

II,5,1287

I have writ my letters, casketed my treasure,
Given order for our horses; and to-night,...

34

II,5,1295

Is there any unkindness between my lord and you, monsieur?

35

II,5,1302

It may be you have mistaken him, my lord.

36

II,5,1313

I think so.

37

II,5,1315

Yes, I do know him well, and common speech
Gives him a worthy pass. Here comes my clog.

38

II,5,1322

I shall obey his will.
You must not marvel, Helen, at my course,...

39

II,5,1340

Come, come, no more of that.

40

II,5,1345

Let that go:
My haste is very great: farewell; hie home.

41

II,5,1348

Well, what would you say?

42

II,5,1353

What would you have?

43

II,5,1358

I pray you, stay not, but in haste to horse.

44

II,5,1360

Where are my other men, monsieur? Farewell.
[Exit HELENA]...

45

III,3,1546

Sir, it is
A charge too heavy for my strength, but yet...

46

III,3,1553

This very day,
Great Mars, I put myself into thy file:...

47

III,6,1734

Do you think I am so far deceived in him?

48

III,6,1744

I would I knew in what particular action to try him.

49

III,6,1770

How now, monsieur! this drum sticks sorely in your
disposition.

50

III,6,1780

Well, we cannot greatly condemn our success: some
dishonour we had in the loss of that drum; but it is...

51

III,6,1784

It might; but it is not now.

52

III,6,1789

Why, if you have a stomach, to't, monsieur: if you
think your mystery in stratagem can bring this...

53

III,6,1799

But you must not now slumber in it.

54

III,6,1804

May I be bold to acquaint his grace you are gone about it?

55

III,6,1807

I know thou'rt valiant; and, to the possibility of
thy soldiership, will subscribe for thee. Farewell.

56

III,6,1820

Why, do you think he will make no deed at all of
this that so seriously he does address himself unto?

57

III,6,1832

Your brother he shall go along with me.

58

III,6,1835

Now will I lead you to the house, and show you
The lass I spoke of.

59

III,6,1838

That's all the fault: I spoke with her but once
And found her wondrous cold; but I sent to her,...

60

IV,2,2004

They told me that your name was Fontibell.

61

IV,2,2006

Titled goddess;
And worth it, with addition! But, fair soul,...

62

IV,2,2016

So should you be.

63

IV,2,2020

No more o' that;
I prithee, do not strive against my vows:...

64

IV,2,2029

How have I sworn!

65

IV,2,2041

Change it, change it;
Be not so holy-cruel: love is holy;...

66

IV,2,2050

I'll lend it thee, my dear; but have no power
To give it from me.

67

IV,2,2053

It is an honour 'longing to our house,
Bequeathed down from many ancestors;...

68

IV,2,2064

Here, take my ring:
My house, mine honour, yea, my life, be thine,...

69

IV,2,2079

A heaven on earth I have won by wooing thee.

70

IV,3,2174

I have to-night dispatched sixteen businesses, a
month's length a-piece, by an abstract of success:...

71

IV,3,2185

I mean, the business is not ended, as fearing to
hear of it hereafter. But shall we have this...

72

IV,3,2192

No matter: his heels have deserved it, in usurping
his spurs so long. How does he carry himself?

73

IV,3,2201

Nothing of me, has a'?

74

IV,3,2206

A plague upon him! muffled! he can say nothing of
me: hush, hush!

75

IV,3,2226

All's one to him. What a past-saving slave is this!

76

IV,3,2239

But I con him no thanks for't, in the nature he
delivers it.

77

IV,3,2257

What shall be done to him?

78

IV,3,2276

Nay, by your leave, hold your hands; though I know
his brains are forfeit to the next tile that falls.

79

IV,3,2292

Our interpreter does it well.

80

IV,3,2305

Damnable both-sides rogue!

81

IV,3,2316

He shall be whipped through the army with this rhyme
in's forehead.

82

IV,3,2320

I could endure any thing before but a cat, and now
he's a cat to me.

83

IV,3,2345

For this description of thine honesty? A pox upon
him for me, he's more and more a cat.

84

IV,3,2357

A pox on him, he's a cat still.

85

IV,3,2392

Good morrow, noble captain.

86

V,3,2716

My high-repented blames,
Dear sovereign, pardon to me.

87

V,3,2725

Admiringly, my liege, at first
I stuck my choice upon her, ere my heart...

88

V,3,2765

Hers it was not.

89

V,3,2774

My gracious sovereign,
Howe'er it pleases you to take it so,...

90

V,3,2781

You are deceived, my lord; she never saw it:
In Florence was it from a casement thrown me,...

91

V,3,2803

She never saw it.

92

V,3,2817

If you shall prove
This ring was ever hers, you shall as easy...

93

V,3,2866

My lord, I neither can nor will deny
But that I know them: do they charge me further?

94

V,3,2869

She's none of mine, my lord.

95

V,3,2879

My lord, this is a fond and desperate creature,
Whom sometime I have laugh'd with: let your highness...

96

V,3,2890

She's impudent, my lord,
And was a common gamester to the camp.

97

V,3,2911

What of him?
He's quoted for a most perfidious slave,...

98

V,3,2918

I think she has: certain it is I liked her,
And boarded her i' the wanton way of youth:...

99

V,3,2934

I have it not.

100

V,3,2944

My lord, I do confess the ring was hers.

101

V,3,3029

Both, both. O, pardon!

102

V,3,3036

If she, my liege, can make me know this clearly,
I'll love her dearly, ever, ever dearly.
