1

I,2,208

Return'd so soon! rather approach'd too late:
The capon burns, the pig falls from the spit,...

2

I,2,220

O,—sixpence, that I had o' Wednesday last
To pay the saddler for my mistress' crupper?...

3

I,2,227

I pray you, air, as you sit at dinner:
I from my mistress come to you in post;...

4

I,2,236

To me, sir? why, you gave no gold to me.

5

I,2,239

My charge was but to fetch you from the mart
Home to your house, the Phoenix, sir, to dinner:...

6

I,2,246

I have some marks of yours upon my pate,
Some of my mistress' marks upon my shoulders,...

7

I,2,252

Your worship's wife, my mistress at the Phoenix;
She that doth fast till you come home to dinner,...

8

I,2,257

What mean you, sir? for God's sake, hold your hands!
Nay, and you will not, sir, I'll take my heels.

9

II,1,318

Nay, he's at two hands with me, and that my two ears
can witness.

10

II,1,321

Ay, ay, he told his mind upon mine ear:
Beshrew his hand, I scarce could understand it.

11

II,1,324

Nay, he struck so plainly, I could too well feel his
blows; and withal so doubtfully that I could scarce...

12

II,1,329

Why, mistress, sure my master is horn-mad.

13

II,1,331

I mean not cuckold-mad;
But, sure, he is stark mad....

14

II,1,343

Quoth my master:
'I know,' quoth he, 'no house, no wife, no mistress.'...

15

II,1,349

Go back again, and be new beaten home?
For God's sake, send some other messenger.

16

II,1,352

And he will bless that cross with other beating:
Between you I shall have a holy head.

17

II,1,355

Am I so round with you as you with me,
That like a football you do spurn me thus?...

18

III,1,622

Say what you will, sir, but I know what I know;
That you beat me at the mart, I have your hand to show:...

19

III,1,627

Marry, so it doth appear
By the wrongs I suffer and the blows I bear....

20

III,1,644

Maud, Bridget, Marian, Cicel, Gillian, Ginn!

21

III,1,651

What patch is made our porter? My master stays in
the street.

22

III,1,664

O villain! thou hast stolen both mine office and my name.
The one ne'er got me credit, the other mickle blame....

23

III,1,671

Let my master in, Luce.

24

III,1,674

O Lord, I must laugh!
Have at you with a proverb—Shall I set in my staff?

25

III,1,683

So, come, help: well struck! there was blow for blow.

26

III,1,686

Master, knock the door hard.

27

III,1,696

If you went in pain, master, this 'knave' would go sore.

28

III,1,700

They stand at the door, master; bid them welcome hither.

29

III,1,702

You would say so, master, if your garments were thin.
Your cake there is warm within; you stand here in the cold:...

30

III,1,708

A man may break a word with you, sir, and words are but wind,
Ay, and break it in your face, so he break it not behind.

31

III,1,712

Here's too much 'out upon thee!' I pray thee,
let me in.

32

III,1,716

A crow without feather? Master, mean you so?
For a fish without a fin, there's a fowl without a feather;...

33

IV,1,973

I buy a thousand pound a year: I buy a rope.

34

IV,4,1259

Here's that, I warrant you, will pay them all.

35

IV,4,1261

Why, sir, I gave the money for the rope.

36

IV,4,1263

I'll serve you, sir, five hundred at the rate.

37

IV,4,1265

To a rope's-end, sir; and to that end am I returned.

38

IV,4,1269

Nay, 'tis for me to be patient; I am in adversity.

39

IV,4,1271

Nay, rather persuade him to hold his hands.

40

IV,4,1273

I would I were senseless, sir, that I might not feel
your blows.

41

IV,4,1277

I am an ass, indeed; you may prove it by my long
ears. I have served him from the hour of my...

42

IV,4,1290

Mistress, 'respice finem,' respect your end; or
rather, the prophecy like the parrot, 'beware the...

43

IV,4,1320

Sir, sooth to say, you did not dine at home.

44

IV,4,1322

Perdie, your doors were lock'd and you shut out.

45

IV,4,1324

Sans fable, she herself reviled you there.

46

IV,4,1326

Certes, she did; the kitchen-vestal scorn'd you.

47

IV,4,1328

In verity you did; my bones bear witness,
That since have felt the vigour of his rage.

48

IV,4,1336

Money by me! heart and goodwill you might;
But surely master, not a rag of money.

49

IV,4,1341

God and the rope-maker bear me witness
That I was sent for nothing but a rope!

50

IV,4,1349

And, gentle master, I received no gold;
But I confess, sir, that we were lock'd out.

51

IV,4,1380

Master, I am here entered in bond for you.

52

IV,4,1382

Will you be bound for nothing? be mad, good master:
cry 'The devil!'

53

V,1,1713

Sir, he dined with her there, at the Porpentine.

54

V,1,1727

Within this hour I was his bondman sir,
But he, I thank him, gnaw'd in two my cords:...

55

V,1,1731

Ourselves we do remember, sir, by you;
For lately we were bound, as you are now...

56

V,1,1742

No, trust me, sir, nor I.

57

V,1,1744

Ay, sir, but I am sure I do not; and whatsoever a
man denies, you are now bound to believe him.

58

V,1,1778

I, sir, am Dromio; pray, let me stay.

59

V,1,1808

And I with him.

60

V,1,1828

No, none by me.

61

V,1,1865

Methinks you are my glass, and not my brother:
I see by you I am a sweet-faced youth....

62

V,1,1869

That's a question: how shall we try it?

63

V,1,1871

Nay, then, thus:
We came into the world like brother and brother;...
