III,3,1574

Hilloa, loa!

2

III,3,1578

I have seen two such sights, by sea and by land!
but I am not to say it is a sea, for it is now the...

3

III,3,1583

I would you did but see how it chafes, how it rages,
how it takes up the shore! but that's not the...

4

III,3,1599

Now, now: I have not winked since I saw these
sights: the men are not yet cold under water, nor...

5

III,3,1604

I would you had been by the ship side, to have
helped her: there your charity would have lacked footing.

6

III,3,1614

You're a made old man: if the sins of your youth
are forgiven you, you're well to live. Gold! all gold!

7

III,3,1621

Go you the next way with your findings. I'll go see
if the bear be gone from the gentleman and how much...

8

III,3,1629

Marry, will I; and you shall help to put him i' the ground.

9

IV,3,1756

Let me see: every 'leven wether tods; every tod
yields pound and odd shilling; fifteen hundred...

10

IV,3,1761

I cannot do't without counters. Let me see; what am
I to buy for our sheep-shearing feast? Three pound...

11

IV,3,1777

I' the name of me—

12

IV,3,1780

Alack, poor soul! thou hast need of more rags to lay
on thee, rather than have these off.

13

IV,3,1785

Alas, poor man! a million of beating may come to a
great matter.

14

IV,3,1790

What, by a horseman, or a footman?

15

IV,3,1792

Indeed, he should be a footman by the garments he
has left with thee: if this be a horseman's coat,...

16

IV,3,1797

Alas, poor soul!

17

IV,3,1800

How now! canst stand?

18

IV,3,1804

Dost lack any money? I have a little money for thee.

19

IV,3,1810

What manner of fellow was he that robbed you?

20

IV,3,1815

His vices, you would say; there's no virtue whipped
out of the court: they cherish it to make it stay...

21

IV,3,1825

Out upon him! prig, for my life, prig: he haunts
wakes, fairs and bear-baitings.

22

IV,3,1829

Not a more cowardly rogue in all Bohemia: if you had
but looked big and spit at him, he'ld have run.

23

IV,3,1834

How do you now?

24

IV,3,1838

Shall I bring thee on the way?

25

IV,3,1840

Then fare thee well: I must go buy spices for our
sheep-shearing.

26

IV,4,2047

Come on, strike up!

27

IV,4,2051

Not a word, a word; we stand upon our manners.
Come, strike up!...

28

IV,4,2078

He could never come better; he shall come in. I
love a ballad but even too well, if it be doleful...

29

IV,4,2093

Believe me, thou talkest of an admirable conceited
fellow. Has he any unbraided wares?

30

IV,4,2102

Prithee bring him in; and let him approach singing.

31

IV,4,2105

You have of these pedlars, that have more in them
than you'ld think, sister.

32

IV,4,2121

If I were not in love with Mopsa, thou shouldst take
no money of me; but being enthralled as I am, it...

33

IV,4,2129

Is there no manners left among maids? will they
wear their plackets where they should bear their...

34

IV,4,2138

Have I not told thee how I was cozened by the way
and lost all my money?

35

IV,4,2142

Fear not thou, man, thou shalt lose nothing here.

36

IV,4,2144

What hast here? ballads?

37

IV,4,2158

Come on, lay it by: and let's first see moe
ballads; we'll buy the other things anon.

38

IV,4,2170

Lay it by too: another.

39

IV,4,2199

We'll have this song out anon by ourselves: my
father and the gentlemen are in sad talk, and we'll...

40

IV,4,2664

See, see; what a man you are now!
There is no other way but to tell the king...

41

IV,4,2668

Nay, but hear me.

42

IV,4,2670

She being none of your flesh and blood, your flesh
and blood has not offended the king; and so your...

43

IV,4,2680

Indeed, brother-in-law was the farthest off you
could have been to him and then your blood had been...

44

IV,4,2688

Pray heartily he be at palace.

45

IV,4,2698

We are but plain fellows, sir.

46

IV,4,2704

Your worship had like to have given us one, if you
had not taken yourself with the manner.

47

IV,4,2720

Advocate's the court-word for a pheasant: say you
have none.

48

IV,4,2726

This cannot be but a great courtier.

49

IV,4,2729

He seems to be the more noble in being fantastical:
a great man, I'll warrant; I know by the picking...

50

IV,4,2749

Think you so, sir?

51

IV,4,2759

Has the old man e'er a son, sir, do you hear. an't
like you, sir?

52

IV,4,2779

He seems to be of great authority: close with him,
give him gold; and though authority be a stubborn...

53

IV,4,2790

In some sort, sir: but though my case be a pitiful
one, I hope I shall not be flayed out of it.

54

IV,4,2794

Comfort, good comfort! We must to the king and show
our strange sights: he must know 'tis none of your...

55

IV,4,2803

We are blest in this man, as I may say, even blest.

56

V,2,3238

You are well met, sir. You denied to fight with me
this other day, because I was no gentleman born....

57

V,2,3245

Ay, and have been so any time these four hours.

58

V,2,3247

So you have: but I was a gentleman born before my
father; for the king's son took me by the hand, and...

59

V,2,3255

Ay; or else 'twere hard luck, being in so
preposterous estate as we are.

60

V,2,3262

Thou wilt amend thy life?

61

V,2,3264

Give me thy hand: I will swear to the prince thou
art as honest a true fellow as any is in Bohemia.

62

V,2,3267

Not swear it, now I am a gentleman? Let boors and
franklins say it, I'll swear it.

63

V,2,3270

If it be ne'er so false, a true gentleman may swear
it in the behalf of his friend: and I'll swear to...

V,2,3278
