1

IV,1,1938

We see yonder the beginning of the day, but I think
we shall never see the end of it. Who goes there?

2

IV,1,1941

Under what captain serve you?

3

IV,1,1943

A good old commander and a most kind gentleman: I
pray you, what thinks he of our estate?

4

IV,1,1975

That's more than we know.

5

IV,1,1980

But if the cause be not good, the king himself hath
a heavy reckoning to make, when all those legs and
arms and heads, chopped off in battle, shall join
together at the latter day and cry all 'We died at
such a place;' some swearing, some crying for a
surgeon, some upon their wives left poor behind
them, some upon the debts they owe, some upon their
children rawly left. I am afeard there are few die
well that die in a battle; for how can they
charitably dispose of any thing, when blood is their
argument? Now, if these men do not die well, it
will be a black matter for the king that led them to
it; whom to disobey were against all proportion of
subjection.

6

IV,1,2035

'Tis certain, every man that dies ill, the ill upon
his own head, the king is not to answer it.

7

IV,1,2040

Ay, he said so, to make us fight cheerfully: but
when our throats are cut, he may be ransomed, and we
ne'er the wiser.

8

IV,1,2044

You pay him then. That's a perilous shot out of an
elder-gun, that a poor and private displeasure can
do against a monarch! you may as well go about to
turn the sun to ice with fanning in his face with a
peacock's feather. You'll never trust his word
after! come, 'tis a foolish saying.

9

IV,1,2052

Let it be a quarrel between us, if you live.

10

IV,1,2054

How shall I know thee again?

11

IV,1,2058

Here's my glove: give me another of thine.

12

IV,1,2060

This will I also wear in my cap: if ever thou come
to me and say, after to-morrow, 'This is my glove,'
by this hand, I will take thee a box on the ear.

13

IV,1,2064

Thou darest as well be hanged.

14

IV,1,2067

Keep thy word: fare thee well.

15

IV,7,2643

An't please your majesty, 'tis the gage of one that
I should fight withal, if he be alive.

16

IV,7,2646

An't please your majesty, a rascal that swaggered
with me last night; who, if alive and ever dare to
challenge this glove, I have sworn to take him a box
o' th' ear: or if I can see my glove in his cap,
which he swore, as he was a soldier, he would wear
if alive, I will strike it out soundly.

17

IV,7,2666

So I will, my liege, as I live.

18

IV,7,2668

Under Captain Gower, my liege.

19

IV,7,2672

I will, my liege.

20

IV,8,2707

I warrant it is to knight you, captain.

21

IV,8,2712

Sir, know you this glove?

22

IV,8,2714

I know this; and thus I challenge it.

23

IV,8,2719

Do you think I'll be forsworn?

24

IV,8,2722

I am no traitor.

25

IV,8,2737

My liege, this was my glove; here is the fellow of
it; and he that I gave it to in change promised to
wear it in his cap: I promised to strike him, if he
did: I met this man with my glove in his cap, and I
have been as good as my word.

26

IV,8,2755

All offences, my lord, come from the heart: never
came any from mine that might offend your majesty.

27

IV,8,2758

Your majesty came not like yourself: you appeared to
me but as a common man; witness the night, your
garments, your lowliness; and what your highness
suffered under that shape, I beseech you take it for
your own fault and not mine: for had you been as I
took you for, I made no offence; therefore, I
beseech your highness, pardon me.

28

IV,8,2775

I will none of your money.
