1

III,1,1669

Well, my dread lord; so must I call you now.

2

III,1,1674

I thank you, gentle uncle. O, my lord,
You said that idle weeds are fast in growth
The prince my brother hath outgrown me far.

3

III,1,1678

And therefore is he idle?

4

III,1,1680

Then is he more beholding to you than I.

5

III,1,1683

I pray you, uncle, give me this dagger.

6

III,1,1686

Of my kind uncle, that I know will give;
And being but a toy, which is no grief to give.

7

III,1,1689

A greater gift! O, that's the sword to it.

8

III,1,1691

O, then, I see, you will part but with light gifts;
In weightier things you'll say a beggar nay.

9

III,1,1694

I weigh it lightly, were it heavier.

10

III,1,1696

I would, that I might thank you as you call me.

11

III,1,1698

Little.

12

III,1,1701

You mean, to bear me, not to bear with me:
Uncle, my brother mocks both you and me;
Because that I am little, like an ape,
He thinks that you should bear me on your shoulders.

13

III,1,1713

What, will you go unto the Tower, my lord?

14

III,1,1715

I shall not sleep in quiet at the Tower.

15

III,1,1717

Marry, my uncle Clarence' angry ghost:
My grandam told me he was murdered there.
