I,2,191

Mars his true moving, even as in the heavens
So in the earth, to this day is not known:...

2

I,2,208

Sound, sound alarum! we will rush on them.
Now for the honour of the forlorn French!...

3

I,2,215

Who ever saw the like? what men have I!
Dogs! cowards! dastards! I would ne'er have fled,...

4

I,2,230

Let's leave this town; for they are hare-brain'd slaves,
And hunger will enforce them to be more eager:...

5

I,2,241

Bastard of Orleans, thrice welcome to us.

6

I,2,254

Go, call her in.
[Exit BASTARD OF ORLEANS]...

7

I,2,290

Thou hast astonish'd me with thy high terms:
Only this proof I'll of thy valour make,...

8

I,2,300

Then come, o' God's name; I fear no woman.

9

I,2,303

Stay, stay thy hands! thou art an Amazon
And fightest with the sword of Deborah.

10

I,2,306

Whoe'er helps thee, 'tis thou that must help me:
Impatiently I burn with thy desire;...

11

I,2,316

Meantime look gracious on thy prostrate thrall.

12

I,2,327

What she says I'll confirm: we'll fight it out.

13

I,2,339

Was Mahomet inspired with a dove?
Thou with an eagle art inspired then....

14

I,2,348

Presently we'll try: come, let's away about it:
No prophet will I trust, if she prove false.

15

I,6,632

Divinest creature, Astraea's daughter,
How shall I honour thee for this success?...

16

I,6,645

'Tis Joan, not we, by whom the day is won;
For which I will divide my crown with her,...

17

II,1,722

Is this thy cunning, thou deceitful dame?
Didst thou at first, to flatter us withal,...

18

II,1,732

Duke of Alencon, this was your default,
That, being captain of the watch to-night,...

19

II,1,740

And, for myself, most part of all this night,
Within her quarter and mine own precinct...

20

III,2,1461

Saint Denis bless this happy stratagem!
And once again we'll sleep secure in Rouen.

21

III,2,1477

A prophet to the fall of all our foes!

22

III,2,1501

Your grace may starve perhaps before that time.

III,3,1614

We have been guided by thee hitherto,
And of thy cunning had no diffidence:...

24

III,3,1626

Ay, marry, sweeting, if we could do that,
France were no place for Henry's warriors;...

25

III,3,1646

A parley with the Duke of Burgundy!

III,3,1650

Speak, Pucelle, and enchant him with thy words.

27

III,3,1696

28

III,3,1700

And seek how we may prejudice the foe.

29

IV,7,2288

Had York and Somerset brought rescue in,
We should have found a bloody day of this.

30

IV,7,2304

O, no, forbear! for that which we have fled
During the life, let us not wrong it dead....

31

IV,7,2310

On what submissive message art thou sent?

32

IV,7,2315

For prisoners ask'st thou? hell our prison is.
But tell me whom thou seek'st.

IV,7,2348

And now to Paris, in this conquering vein:...

35

V,2,2423

These news, my lord, may cheer our drooping spirits:
'Tis said the stout Parisians do revolt...

36

V,2,2433

What tidings send our scouts? I prithee, speak.
