1

I,2,199

They want their porridge and their fat bull-beeves:
Either they must be dieted like mules
And have their provender tied to their mouths
Or piteous they will look, like drowned mice.

2

I,2,222

Froissart, a countryman of ours, records,
England all Olivers and Rowlands bred,
During the time Edward the Third did reign.
More truly now may this be verified;
For none but Samsons and Goliases
It sendeth forth to skirmish. One to ten!
Lean, raw-boned rascals! who would e'er suppose
They had such courage and audacity?

3

I,2,238

Be it so.

4

I,2,318

Doubtless he shrives this woman to her smock;
Else ne'er could he so long protract his speech.

5

I,2,321

He may mean more than we poor men do know:
These women are shrewd tempters with their tongues.

6

I,2,345

Leave off delays, and let us raise the siege.

7

I,6,643

All France will be replete with mirth and joy,
When they shall hear how we have play'd the men.

8

II,1,710

How now, my lords! what, all unready so?

9

II,1,714

Of all exploits since first I follow'd arms,
Ne'er heard I of a warlike enterprise
More venturous or desperate than this.

10

II,1,719

Here cometh Charles: I marvel how he sped.

11

II,1,735

Had all your quarters been as safely kept
As that whereof I had the government,
We had not been thus shamefully surprised.

12

III,2,1521

Signior, no.

13

III,3,1619

We'll set thy statue in some holy place,
And have thee reverenced like a blessed saint:
Employ thee then, sweet virgin, for our good.

14

III,3,1630

For ever should they be expulsed from France
And not have title of an earldom here.

15

III,3,1698

Pucelle hath bravely play'd her part in this,
And doth deserve a coronet of gold.

16

V,2,2426

Then march to Paris, royal Charles of France,
And keep not back your powers in dalliance.

17

V,4,2808

Must he be then as shadow of himself?
Adorn his temples with a coronet,
And yet, in substance and authority,
Retain but privilege of a private man?
This proffer is absurd and reasonless.

18

V,4,2834

To say the truth, it is your policy
To save your subjects from such massacre
And ruthless slaughters as are daily seen
By our proceeding in hostility;
And therefore take this compact of a truce,
Although you break it when your pleasure serves.
