1

I,1,174

Why should he, then, protect our sovereign,
He being of age to govern of himself?
Cousin of Somerset, join you with me,
And all together, with the Duke of Suffolk,
We'll quickly hoise Duke Humphrey from his seat.

2

I,1,188

Or thou or I, Somerset, will be protector,
Despite Duke Humphrey or the cardinal.

3

I,3,505

All in this presence are thy betters, Warwick.

4

I,3,526

Thy cruelty in execution
Upon offenders, hath exceeded law,
And left thee to the mercy of the law.

5

I,3,545

Lord cardinal, I will follow Eleanor,
And listen after Humphrey, how he proceeds:
She's tickled now; her fume needs no spurs,
She'll gallop far enough to her destruction.

6

I,4,685

True, madam, none at all: what call you this?
Away with them! let them be clapp'd up close.
And kept asunder. You, madam, shall with us.
Stafford, take her to thee.
[Exeunt above DUCHESS and HUME, guarded]
We'll see your trinkets here all forthcoming.
All, away!

7

I,4,717

Your grace shall give me leave, my Lord of York,
To be the post, in hope of his reward.

8

II,1,913

Such as my heart doth tremble to unfold.
A sort of naughty persons, lewdly bent,
Under the countenance and confederacy
Of Lady Eleanor, the protector's wife,
The ringleader and head of all this rout,
Have practised dangerously against your state,
Dealing with witches and with conjurers:
Whom we have apprehended in the fact;
Raising up wicked spirits from under ground,
Demanding of King Henry's life and death,
And other of your highness' privy-council;
As more at large your grace shall understand.

9

III,1,1341

Tut, these are petty faults to faults unknown.
Which time will bring to light in smooth
Duke Humphrey.

10

III,1,1467

He'll wrest the sense and hold us here all day:
Lord cardinal, he is your prisoner.

11

IV,4,2529

What answer makes your grace to the rebels'
supplication?

12

IV,4,2562

My gracious lord, return to Killingworth,
Until a power be raised to put them down.

13

IV,4,2578

Then linger not, my lord, away, take horse.

14

IV,4,2582

Trust nobody, for fear you be betray'd.

15

IV,8,2763

Ay, here they be that dare and will disturb thee:
Know, Cade, we come ambassadors from the king
Unto the commons whom thou hast misled;
And here pronounce free pardon to them all
That will forsake thee and go home in peace.

16

IV,8,2823

What, is he fled? Go some, and follow him;
And he that brings his head unto the king
Shall have a thousand crowns for his reward.
[Exeunt some of them]
Follow me, soldiers: we'll devise a mean
To reconcile you all unto the king.

17

IV,9,2839

Health and glad tidings to your majesty!

18

IV,9,2881

I will, my lord; and doubt not so to deal
As all things shall redound unto your good.

19

V,1,2991

York, if thou meanest well, I greet thee well.

20

V,1,2994

A messenger from Henry, our dread liege,
To know the reason of these arms in peace;
Or why thou, being a subject as I am,
Against thy oath and true allegiance sworn,
Should raise so great a power without his leave,
Or dare to bring thy force so near the court.

21

V,1,3015

That is too much presumption on thy part:
But if thy arms be to no other end,
The king hath yielded unto thy demand:
The Duke of Somerset is in the Tower.

22

V,1,3020

Upon mine honour, he is prisoner.

23

V,1,3031

York, I commend this kind submission:
We twain will go into his highness' tent.

24

V,1,3055

So please it you, my lord, 'twere not amiss
He were created knight for his good service.
