1

II,4,961

Stay, lords and gentlemen, and pluck no more,
Till you conclude that he upon whose side
The fewest roses are cropp'd from the tree
Shall yield the other in the right opinion.

2

II,4,969

Then for the truth and plainness of the case.
I pluck this pale and maiden blossom here,
Giving my verdict on the white rose side.

3

II,4,975

If I my lord, for my opinion bleed,
Opinion shall be surgeon to my hurt
And keep me on the side where still I am.

II,4,1068

In your behalf still will I wear the same.

III,4,1736

Now, sir, to you, that were so hot at sea,
Disgracing of these colours that I wear
In honour of my noble Lord of York:
Darest thou maintain the former words thou spakest?

6

III,4,1743

Sirrah, thy lord I honour as he is.

7

III,4,1745

Hark ye; not so: in witness, take ye that.

8

III,4,1753

Well, miscreant, I'll be there as soon as you;
And, after, meet you sooner than you would.

9

IV,1,1843

Grant me the combat, gracious sovereign.

10

IV,1,1850

With him, my lord; for he hath done me wrong.

11

IV,1,1866

And that is my petition, noble lord:
For though he seem with forged quaint conceit
To set a gloss upon his bold intent,
Yet know, my lord, I was provoked by him;
And he first took exceptions at this badge,
Pronouncing that the paleness of this flower
Bewray'd the faintness of my master's heart.

12

IV,1,1886

Nay, let it rest where it began at first.
