1

IV,6,1965

How now! How a dozen of virginities?

2

IV,6,1968

You may so; 'tis the better for you that your
resorters stand upon sound legs. How now!
wholesome iniquity have you that a man may deal
withal, and defy the surgeon?

3

IV,6,1974

If she'ld do the deed of darkness, thou wouldst say.

4

IV,6,1976

Well, call forth, call forth.

5

IV,6,1979

What, prithee?

6

IV,6,1981

That dignifies the renown of a bawd, no less than it
gives a good report to a number to be chaste.

7

IV,6,1988

'Faith, she would serve after a long voyage at sea.
Well, there's for you: leave us.

8

IV,6,1992

I beseech you, do.

9

IV,6,2003

Ha' you done?

10

IV,6,2008

Now, pretty one, how long have you been at this trade?

11

IV,6,2010

Why, I cannot name't but I shall offend.

12

IV,6,2012

How long have you been of this profession?

13

IV,6,2014

Did you go to 't so young? Were you a gamester at
five or at seven?

14

IV,6,2017

Why, the house you dwell in proclaims you to be a
creature of sale.

15

IV,6,2022

Why, hath your principal made known unto you who I am?

16

IV,6,2024

Why, your herb-woman; she that sets seeds and roots
of shame and iniquity. O, you have heard something
of my power, and so stand aloof for more serious
wooing. But I protest to thee, pretty one, my
authority shall not see thee, or else look friendly
upon thee. Come, bring me to some private place:
come, come.

17

IV,6,2034

How's this? how's this? Some more; be sage.

18

IV,6,2043

I did not think
Thou couldst have spoke so well; ne'er dream'd thou couldst.
Had I brought hither a corrupted mind,
Thy speech had alter'd it. Hold, here's gold for thee:
Persever in that clear way thou goest,
And the gods strengthen thee!

19

IV,6,2050

For me, be you thoughten
That I came with no ill intent; for to me
The very doors and windows savour vilely.
Fare thee well. Thou art a piece of virtue, and
I doubt not but thy training hath been noble.
Hold, here's more gold for thee.
A curse upon him, die he like a thief,
That robs thee of thy goodness! If thou dost
Hear from me, it shall be for thy good.

20

IV,6,2061

Avaunt, thou damned door-keeper!
Your house, but for this virgin that doth prop it,
Would sink and overwhelm you. Away!

21

V,1,2193

Hail, reverend sir! the gods preserve you!

22

V,1,2196

You wish me well.
Being on shore, honouring of Neptune's triumphs,
Seeing this goodly vessel ride before us,
I made to it, to know of whence you are.

23

V,1,2201

I am the governor of this place you lie before.

24

V,1,2207

Upon what ground is his distemperature?

25

V,1,2211

May we not see him?

26

V,1,2214

Yet let me obtain my wish.

27

V,1,2220

Sir king, all hail! the gods preserve you!
Hail, royal sir!

28

V,1,2226

'Tis well bethought.
She questionless with her sweet harmony
And other chosen attractions, would allure,
And make a battery through his deafen'd parts,
Which now are midway stopp'd:
She is all happy as the fairest of all,
And, with her fellow maids is now upon
The leafy shelter that abuts against
The island's side.

29

V,1,2242

O, sir, a courtesy
Which if we should deny, the most just gods
For every graff would send a caterpillar,
And so afflict our province. Yet once more
Let me entreat to know at large the cause
Of your king's sorrow.

30

V,1,2252

O, here is
The lady that I sent for. Welcome, fair one!
Is't not a goodly presence?

31

V,1,2256

She's such a one, that, were I well assured
Came of a gentle kind and noble stock,
I'ld wish no better choice, and think me rarely wed.
Fair one, all goodness that consists in bounty
Expect even here, where is a kingly patient:
If that thy prosperous and artificial feat
Can draw him but to answer thee in aught,
Thy sacred physic shall receive such pay
As thy desires can wish.

32

V,1,2269

Come, let us leave her;
And the gods make her prosperous!

33

V,1,2272

Mark'd he your music?

34

V,1,2274

See, she will speak to him.

35

V,1,2403

She would never tell
Her parentage; being demanded that,
She would sit still and weep.

36

V,1,2448

It is not good to cross him; give him way.

37

V,1,2450

My lord, I hear.

38

V,1,2456

A pillow for his head:
So, leave him all. Well, my companion friends,
If this but answer to my just belief,
I'll well remember you.

39

V,1,2485

Sir,
With all my heart; and, when you come ashore,
I have another suit.

40

V,1,2491

Sir, lend me your arm.
