3

I,3,342

hurt done! Though honesty be no puritan, yet it...

II,2,831

may easily put it off at court: he that cannot make...

16

the pin-buttock, the quatch-buttock, the brawn...

II,4,1214

One, that she's not in heaven, whither God send her
quickly! the other that she's in earth, from whence...

So that you had her wrinkles and I her money,
I would she did as you say.

32

II,4,1226

tongue shakes out his master's undoing: to say...

33

II,4,1232

knave; that's, before me thou'rt a knave: this had...

34

II,4,1236

taught to find me? The search, sir, was profitable;...

III,2,1400

salad, or rather, the herb of grace.

46

IV,5,2488

And I would give his wife my bauble, sir, to do her service.
