I know him well; you are welcome for his sake.

12

A thousand thanks, Signior Gremio. Welcome, good Cambio.

I know him well. You are very welcome, sir....

And, in possession, twenty thousand crowns.

That is, her love; for that is all in all.

II,1,981

Well mayst thou woo, and happy be thy speed
But be thou arm'd for some unhappy words.

18

II,1,986

How now, my friend! Why dost thou look so pale?

19

II,1,988

What, will my daughter prove a good musician?

20

II,1,991

Well, go with me, and be not so discomfited;
Proceed in practice with my younger daughter;...

II,1,1135

Why, how now, daughter Katherine, in your dumps?

24

II,1,1169

I know not what to say; but give me your hands.
God send you joy, Petruchio! 'Tis a match.

25

II,1,1178

Faith, gentlemen, now I play a merchant's part,
And venture madly on a desperate mart.

26

II,1,1182

The gain I seek is quiet in the match.

II,1,1194

Content you, gentlemen; I will compound this strife.
'Tis deeds must win the prize, and he of both...

II,1,1239

I must confess your offer is the best;
And let your father make her the assurance,...

Well, gentlemen,
I am thus resolv'd: on Sunday next you know...

30

[To TRANIO] Signior Lucentio, this is the 'pointed day
That Katherine and Petruchio should be married,...
