1

I,2,103

First Gentleman. Heaven grant us its peace, but not the King of
Hungary's!

Second Gentleman. Amen.


2

I,2,107

Lucio. Thou concludest like the sanctimonious pirate, that
went to sea with the Ten Commandments, but scraped
one out of the table.

Second Gentleman. 'Thou shalt not steal'?


3

I,2,114

First Gentleman. Why, 'twas a commandment to command the captain and
all the rest from their functions: they put forth
to steal. There's not a soldier of us all, that, in
the thanksgiving before meat, do relish the petition
well that prays for peace.

Second Gentleman. I never heard any soldier dislike it.


4

I,2,117

Lucio. I believe thee; for I think thou never wast where
grace was said.

Second Gentleman. No? a dozen times at least.


5

I,2,137

First Gentleman. I think I have done myself wrong, have I not?

Second Gentleman. Yes, that thou hast, whether thou art tainted or free.


6

I,2,140

Lucio. Behold, behold. where Madam Mitigation comes! I
have purchased as many diseases under her roof as come to—

Second Gentleman. To what, I pray?


7

I,2,142

Lucio. Judge.

Second Gentleman. To three thousand dolours a year.


8

I,2,154

Mistress Overdone. Well, well; there's one yonder arrested and carried
to prison was worth five thousand of you all.

Second Gentleman. Who's that, I pray thee?


9

I,2,167

Lucio. Believe me, this may be: he promised to meet me two
hours since, and he was ever precise in
promise-keeping.

Second Gentleman. Besides, you know, it draws something near to the
speech we had to such a purpose.
