1

I,2,101

Heaven grant us its peace, but not the King of
Hungary's!

2

I,2,109

Why, 'twas a commandment to command the captain and
all the rest from their functions: they put forth
to steal. There's not a soldier of us all, that, in
the thanksgiving before meat, do relish the petition
well that prays for peace.

3

I,2,118

4

I,2,120

I think, or in any religion.

5

I,2,124

Well, there went but a pair of shears between us.

6

I,2,127

And thou the velvet: thou art good velvet; thou'rt
a three-piled piece, I warrant thee: I had as lief
be a list of an English kersey as be piled, as thou

7

I,2,136

11

I,2,156

12

I,2,169
