1

IV,1,1553

(stage directions). [Enter certain Outlaws]

First Outlaw. Fellows, stand fast; I see a passenger.


2

IV,1,1561

Valentine. My friends,—

First Outlaw. That's not so, sir: we are your enemies.


3

IV,1,1571

Valentine. To Verona.

First Outlaw. Whence came you?


4

IV,1,1576

Valentine. Some sixteen months, and longer might have stay'd,
If crooked fortune had not thwarted me.

First Outlaw. What, were you banish'd thence?


5

IV,1,1583

Valentine. For that which now torments me to rehearse:
I kill'd a man, whose death I much repent;
But yet I slew him manfully in fight,
Without false vantage or base treachery.

First Outlaw. Why, ne'er repent it, if it were done so.
But were you banish'd for so small a fault?


6

IV,1,1591

Third Outlaw. By the bare scalp of Robin Hood's fat friar,
This fellow were a king for our wild faction!

First Outlaw. We'll have him. Sirs, a word.


7

IV,1,1604

Second Outlaw. And I from Mantua, for a gentleman,
Who, in my mood, I stabb'd unto the heart.

First Outlaw. And I for such like petty crimes as these,
But to the purpose—for we cite our faults,
That they may hold excus'd our lawless lives;
And partly, seeing you are beautified
With goodly shape and by your own report
A linguist and a man of such perfection
As we do in our quality much want—


8

IV,1,1620

Third Outlaw. What say'st thou? wilt thou be of our consort?
Say ay, and be the captain of us all:
We'll do thee homage and be ruled by thee,
Love thee as our commander and our king.

First Outlaw. But if thou scorn our courtesy, thou diest.


9

V,3,2132

(stage directions). [Enter Outlaws with SILVIA]

First Outlaw. Come, come,
Be patient; we must bring you to our captain.


10

V,3,2137

Second Outlaw. Come, bring her away.

First Outlaw. Where is the gentleman that was with her?


11

V,3,2143

Third Outlaw. Being nimble-footed, he hath outrun us,
But Moyses and Valerius follow him.
Go thou with her to the west end of the wood;
There is our captain: we'll follow him that's fled;
The thicket is beset; he cannot 'scape.

First Outlaw. Come, I must bring you to our captain's cave:
Fear not; he bears an honourable mind,
And will not use a woman lawlessly.
