2

I,2,268

Here is the scroll of every man's name, which is
thought fit, through all Athens, to play in our...

3

I,2,275

Marry, our play is, The most lamentable comedy, and
most cruel death of Pyramus and Thisby.

4

I,2,280

Answer as I call you. Nick Bottom, the weaver.

5

I,2,282

You, Nick Bottom, are set down for Pyramus.

6

I,2,284

A lover, that kills himself most gallant for love.

7

I,2,302

Francis Flute, the bellows-mender.

8

I,2,304

Flute, you must take Thisby on you.

9

I,2,306

It is the lady that Pyramus must love.

10

I,2,308

That's all one: you shall play it in a mask, and
you may speak as small as you will.

11

I,2,314

No, no; you must play Pyramus: and, Flute, you Thisby.

12

I,2,316

Snug, the joiner; you, the lion's part: and, I...

I,2,326

You may do it extempore, for it is nothing but roaring.

16

I,2,331

An you should do it too terribly, you would fright
the duchess and the ladies, that they would shriek;...

17

I,2,341

You can play no part but Pyramus; for Pyramus is a
sweet-faced man; a proper man, as one shall see in a...

18

I,2,347

19

I,2,352

Some of your French crowns have no hair at all, and
then you will play bare-faced. But, masters, here...

21

III,1,821

Pat, pat; and here's a marvellous convenient place
for our rehearsal. This green plot shall be our...

22

III,1,826

What sayest thou, bully Bottom?

23

III,1,840

Well, we will have such a prologue; and it shall be
written in eight and six.

24

III,1,861

Well it shall be so. But there is two hard things;
that is, to bring the moonlight into a chamber; for,...

25

III,1,867

Yes, it doth shine that night.

26

III,1,871

Ay; or else one must come in with a bush of thorns
and a lanthorn, and say he comes to disfigure, or to...

every mother's son, and rehearse your parts....

masters! fly, masters! Help!

III,1,937

Bless thee, Bottom! bless thee! thou art
translated.

34

IV,2,1784

Have you sent to Bottom's house? is he come home yet?

35

IV,2,1789

It is not possible: you have not a man in all
Athens able to discharge Pyramus but he.

36

IV,2,1793

Yea and the best person too; and he is a very

IV,2,1810

Bottom! O most courageous day! O most happy hour!

38

IV,2,1814
