1

I,1,2

If music be the food of love, play on;
Give me excess of it, that, surfeiting,...

2

I,1,18

What, Curio?

3

I,1,20

Why, so I do, the noblest that I have:
O, when mine eyes did see Olivia first,...

4

I,1,37

O, she that hath a heart of that fine frame
To pay this debt of love but to a brother,...

5

I,4,256

Who saw Cesario, ho?

6

I,4,258

Stand you a while aloof, Cesario,
Thou know'st no less but all; I have unclasp'd...

7

I,4,268

Be clamorous and leap all civil bounds
Rather than make unprofited return.

8

I,4,271

O, then unfold the passion of my love,
Surprise her with discourse of my dear faith:...

9

I,4,277

Dear lad, believe it;
For they shall yet belie thy happy years,...

10

II,4,891

Give me some music. Now, good morrow, friends.
Now, good Cesario, but that piece of song,...

11

II,4,899

Who was it?

12

II,4,902

Seek him out, and play the tune the while.
[Exit CURIO. Music plays]...

13

II,4,912

Thou dost speak masterly:
My life upon't, young though thou art, thine eye...

14

II,4,917

What kind of woman is't?

15

II,4,919

She is not worth thee, then. What years, i' faith?

16

II,4,921

Too old by heaven: let still the woman take
An elder than herself: so wears she to him,...

17

II,4,929

Then let thy love be younger than thyself,
Or thy affection cannot hold the bent;...

18

II,4,936

O, fellow, come, the song we had last night.
Mark it, Cesario, it is old and plain;...

19

II,4,944

Ay; prithee, sing.
[Music]...

20

II,4,963

There's for thy pains.

21

II,4,965

I'll pay thy pleasure then.

22

II,4,967

Give me now leave to leave thee.

23

II,4,975

Let all the rest give place.
[CURIO and Attendants retire]...

24

II,4,986

I cannot be so answer'd.

25

II,4,992

There is no woman's sides
Can bide the beating of so strong a passion...

26

II,4,1004

What dost thou know?

27

II,4,1010

And what's her history?

28

II,4,1020

But died thy sister of her love, my boy?

29

II,4,1024

Ay, that's the theme.
To her in haste; give her this jewel; say,...

30

V,1,2197

Belong you to the Lady Olivia, friends?

31

V,1,2199

I know thee well; how dost thou, my good fellow?

32

V,1,2202

Just the contrary; the better for thy friends.

33

V,1,2204

How can that be?

34

V,1,2212

Why, this is excellent.

35

V,1,2215

Thou shalt not be the worse for me: there's gold.

36

V,1,2218

O, you give me ill counsel.

37

V,1,2221

Well, I will be so much a sinner, to be a
double-dealer: there's another.

38

V,1,2227

You can fool no more money out of me at this throw:
if you will let your lady know I am here to speak...

39

V,1,2239

That face of his I do remember well;
Yet, when I saw it last, it was besmear'd...

40

V,1,2257

Notable pirate! thou salt-water thief!
What foolish boldness brought thee to their mercies,...

41

V,1,2283

When came he to this town?

42

V,1,2288

Here comes the countess: now heaven walks on earth.
But for thee, fellow; fellow, thy words are madness:...

43

V,1,2296

Gracious Olivia,—

44

V,1,2302

Still so cruel?

45

V,1,2304

What, to perverseness? you uncivil lady,
To whose ingrate and unauspicious altars...

46

V,1,2309

Why should I not, had I the heart to do it,
Like to the Egyptian thief at point of death,...

47

V,1,2336

Come, away!

48

V,1,2338

Husband!

49

V,1,2340

Her husband, sirrah!

50

V,1,2362

O thou dissembling cub! what wilt thou be
When time hath sow'd a grizzle on thy case?...

51

V,1,2381

My gentleman, Cesario?

52

V,1,2394

How now, gentleman! how is't with you?

53

V,1,2415

One face, one voice, one habit, and two persons,
A natural perspective, that is and is not!

54

V,1,2465

Be not amazed; right noble is his blood.
If this be so, as yet the glass seems true,...

55

V,1,2475

Give me thy hand;
And let me see thee in thy woman's weeds.

56

V,1,2518

This savours not much of distraction.

57

V,1,2526

Madam, I am most apt to embrace your offer.
[To VIOLA]...

58

V,1,2536
