IV,1,2015

Duke of Aumerle. Excepting one, I would he were the best
In all this presence that hath moved me so.

Lord Fitzwater. If that thy valour stand on sympathy,
There is my gage, Aumerle, in gage to thine:
By that fair sun which shows me where thou stand'st,
I heard thee say, and vauntingly thou spakest it
That thou wert cause of noble Gloucester's death.
If thou deny'st it twenty times, thou liest;
And I will turn thy falsehood to thy heart,
Where it was forged, with my rapier's point.

IV,1,2024

Duke of Aumerle. Thou darest not, coward, live to see that day.

Lord Fitzwater. Now by my soul, I would it were this hour.

IV,1,2044

Duke of Surrey. My Lord Fitzwater, I do remember well
The very time Aumerle and you did talk.

Lord Fitzwater. 'Tis very true: you were in presence then;
And you can witness with me this is true.

IV,1,2047

Duke of Surrey. As false, by heaven, as heaven itself is true.

Lord Fitzwater. Surrey, thou liest.

IV,1,2055

Duke of Surrey. Dishonourable boy!
That lie shall lie so heavy on my sword,
That it shall render vengeance and revenge
Till thou the lie-giver and that lie do lie
In earth as quiet as thy father's skull:
In proof whereof, there is my honour's pawn;
Engage it to the trial, if thou darest.

Lord Fitzwater. How fondly dost thou spur a forward horse!
If I dare eat, or drink, or breathe, or live,
I dare meet Surrey in a wilderness,
And spit upon him, whilst I say he lies,
And lies, and lies: there is my bond of faith,
To tie thee to my strong correction.
As I intend to thrive in this new world,
Aumerle is guilty of my true appeal:
Besides, I heard the banish'd Norfolk say
That thou, Aumerle, didst send two of thy men
To execute the noble duke at Calais.

V,6,2894

(stage directions). [Enter LORD FITZWATER]

Lord Fitzwater. My lord, I have from Oxford sent to London
The heads of Brocas and Sir Bennet Seely,
Two of the dangerous consorted traitors
That sought at Oxford thy dire overthrow.
