1

I,1,243

Father, you cannot disinherit me:
If you be king, why should not I succeed?

2

I,1,278

When I return with victory from the field
I'll see your grace: till then I'll follow her.

3

II,2,905

My gracious father, by your kingly leave,
I'll draw it as apparent to the crown,
And in that quarrel use it to the death.

4

II,2,921

My royal father, cheer these noble lords
And hearten those that fight in your defence:
Unsheathe your sword, good father; cry 'Saint George!'
[March. Enter EDWARD, GEORGE, RICHARD, WARWICK,]
NORFOLK, MONTAGUE, and Soldiers]

5

II,2,976

If that be right which Warwick says is right,
There is no wrong, but every thing is right.

6

II,5,1234

Fly, father, fly! for all your friends are fled,
And Warwick rages like a chafed bull:
Away! for death doth hold us in pursuit.

7

III,3,1772

And why not queen?

8

III,3,1837

To Edward, but not to the English king.

9

III,3,1871

Nay, mark how Lewis stamps, as he were nettled:
I hope all's for the best.

10

III,3,1953

Yes, I accept her, for she well deserves it;
And here, to pledge my vow, I give my hand.

11

V,4,2843

Methinks a woman of this valiant spirit
Should, if a coward heard her speak these words,
Infuse his breast with magnanimity
And make him, naked, foil a man at arms.
I speak not this as doubting any here
For did I but suspect a fearful man
He should have leave to go away betimes,
Lest in our need he might infect another
And make him of like spirit to himself.
If any such be here—as God forbid!—
Let him depart before we need his help.

12

V,4,2863

And take his thanks that yet hath nothing else.

13

V,5,2912

Speak like a subject, proud ambitious York!
Suppose that I am now my father's mouth;
Resign thy chair, and where I stand kneel thou,
Whilst I propose the selfsame words to thee,
Which traitor, thou wouldst have me answer to.

14

V,5,2920

Let AEsop fable in a winter's night;
His currish riddles sort not with this place.

15

V,5,2925

Nay, take away this scolding crookback rather.

16

V,5,2928

I know my duty; you are all undutiful:
Lascivious Edward, and thou perjured George,
And thou mis-shapen Dick, I tell ye all
I am your better, traitors as ye are:
And thou usurp'st my father's right and mine.
