1

II,1,674

Good morrow, carriers. What's o'clock?

2

II,1,676

I pray thee lend me thy lantern, to see my gelding
in the stable.

3

II,1,679

I pray thee, lend me thine.

4

II,1,682

Sirrah carrier, what time do you mean to come to London?

5

II,1,688

What, ho! chamberlain!

6

II,1,690

That's even as fair as—at hand, quoth the
chamberlain; for thou variest no more from picking
of purses than giving direction doth from labouring;
thou layest the plot how.

7

II,1,703

Sirrah, if they meet not with Saint Nicholas'
clerks, I'll give thee this neck.

8

II,1,708

What talkest thou to me of the hangman? if I hang,

on her, for they ride up and down on her and make
her their boots.

9

II,1,728

She will, she will; justice hath liquored her. We
steal as in a castle, cocksure; we have the receipt
of fern-seed, we walk invisible.

10

II,1,733

Give me thy hand: thou shalt have a share in our
purchase, as I am a true man.

11

II,1,736

Go to; 'homo' is a common name to all men. Bid the
ostler bring my gelding out of the stable. Farewell,
you muddy knave.

12

II,2,789

Stand.

13

II,2,797

There's enough to make us all.

14

II,2,803

Some eight or ten.

15

II,4,1164

We four set upon some dozen—

16

II,4,1166

And bound them.

17

II,4,1170

As we were sharing, some six or seven fresh men set upon us—
