1

IV,1,1554

First Outlaw. Fellows, stand fast; I see a passenger.

Second Outlaw. If there be ten, shrink not, but down with 'em.


2

IV,1,1562

First Outlaw. That's not so, sir: we are your enemies.

Second Outlaw. Peace! we'll hear him.


3

IV,1,1569

Valentine. Then know that I have little wealth to lose:
A man I am cross'd with adversity;
My riches are these poor habiliments,
Of which if you should here disfurnish me,
You take the sum and substance that I have.

Second Outlaw. Whither travel you?


4

IV,1,1578

Valentine. I was.

Second Outlaw. For what offence?


5

IV,1,1586

Valentine. I was, and held me glad of such a doom.

Second Outlaw. Have you the tongues?


6

IV,1,1594

Valentine. Peace, villain!

Second Outlaw. Tell us this: have you any thing to take to?


7

IV,1,1602

Third Outlaw. Know, then, that some of us are gentlemen,
Such as the fury of ungovern'd youth
Thrust from the company of awful men:
Myself was from Verona banished
For practising to steal away a lady,
An heir, and near allied unto the duke.

Second Outlaw. And I from Mantua, for a gentleman,
Who, in my mood, I stabb'd unto the heart.


8

IV,1,1611

First Outlaw. And I for such like petty crimes as these,
But to the purpose—for we cite our faults,
That they may hold excus'd our lawless lives;
And partly, seeing you are beautified
With goodly shape and by your own report
A linguist and a man of such perfection
As we do in our quality much want—

Second Outlaw. Indeed, because you are a banish'd man,
Therefore, above the rest, we parley to you:
Are you content to be our general?
To make a virtue of necessity
And live, as we do, in this wilderness?


9

IV,1,1621

First Outlaw. But if thou scorn our courtesy, thou diest.

Second Outlaw. Thou shalt not live to brag what we have offer'd.


10

V,3,2136

Silvia. A thousand more mischances than this one
Have learn'd me how to brook this patiently.

Second Outlaw. Come, bring her away.
