1

V,3,2510

Margaret my name, and daughter to a king,
The King of Naples, whosoe'er thou art.

2

V,3,2532

Say, Earl of Suffolk—if thy name be so—
What ransom must I pay before I pass?
For I perceive I am thy prisoner.

3

V,3,2537

Why speak'st thou not? what ransom must I pay?

4

V,3,2540

Wilt thou accept of ransom? yea, or no.

5

V,3,2543

I were best to leave him, for he will not hear.

6

V,3,2545

He talks at random; sure, the man is mad.

7

V,3,2547

And yet I would that you would answer me.

8

V,3,2550

He talks of wood: it is some carpenter.

9

V,3,2557

Hear ye, captain, are you not at leisure?

10

V,3,2561

What though I be enthrall'd? he seems a knight,
And will not any way dishonour me.

11

V,3,2564

Perhaps I shall be rescued by the French;
And then I need not crave his courtesy.

12

V,3,2567

Tush, women have been captivate ere now.

13

V,3,2569

I cry you mercy, 'tis but Quid for Quo.

14

V,3,2572

To be a queen in bondage is more vile
Than is a slave in base servility;
For princes should be free.

15

V,3,2577

Why, what concerns his freedom unto me?

16

V,3,2582

What?

17

V,3,2584

I am unworthy to be Henry's wife.

18

V,3,2589

An if my father please, I am content.

19

V,3,2642

Farewell, my lord: good wishes, praise and prayers
Shall Suffolk ever have of Margaret.

20

V,3,2647

Such commendations as becomes a maid,
A virgin and his servant, say to him.

21

V,3,2652

Yes, my good lord, a pure unspotted heart,
Never yet taint with love, I send the king.

22

V,3,2656

That for thyself: I will not so presume
To send such peevish tokens to a king.
