V,1,3184

Cassio. What, ho! no watch? no passage? murder! murder!

Gratiano. 'Tis some mischance; the cry is very direful.


2

V,1,3194

(stage directions). [Re-enter IAGO, with a light]

Gratiano. Here's one comes in his shirt, with light and weapons.


3

V,1,3200

Iago. What's the matter?

Gratiano. This is Othello's ancient, as I take it.


4

V,1,3223

Iago. I cry you mercy. Here's Cassio hurt by villains.

Gratiano. Cassio!


5

V,1,3236

Cassio. No.

Gratiano. I am to find you thus: I have been to seek you.


6

V,1,3246

Iago. Gentlemen all, I do suspect this trash
To be a party in this injury.
Patience awhile, good Cassio. Come, come;
Lend me a light. Know we this face or no?
Alas my friend and my dear countryman
Roderigo! no:—yes, sure: O heaven! Roderigo.

Gratiano. What, of Venice?


7

V,1,3248

Iago. Even he, sir; did you know him?

Gratiano. Know him! ay.


8

V,1,3252

Iago. Signior Gratiano? I cry you gentle pardon;
These bloody accidents must excuse my manners,
That so neglected you.

Gratiano. I am glad to see you.


9

V,1,3254

Iago. How do you, Cassio? O, a chair, a chair!

Gratiano. Roderigo!


10

V,1,3258

Iago. He, he 'tis he.
[A chair brought in]
O, that's well said; the chair!

Gratiano. Some good man bear him carefully from hence;
I'll fetch the general's surgeon.
[To BIANCA]
For you, mistress,
Save you your labour. He that lies slain
here, Cassio,
Was my dear friend: what malice was between you?


11

V,2,3508

Emilia. O, are you come, Iago? you have done well,
That men must lay their murders on your neck.

Gratiano. What is the matter?


12

V,2,3526

Othello. Nay, stare not, masters: it is true, indeed.

Gratiano. 'Tis a strange truth.


13

V,2,3545

Othello. [Rising] O, she was foul!
I scarce did know you, uncle: there lies your niece,
Whose breath, indeed, these hands have newly stopp'd:
I know this act shows horrible and grim.

Gratiano. Poor Desdemona! I am glad thy father's dead:
Thy match was mortal to him, and pure grief
Shore his old thread in twain: did he live now,
This sight would make him do a desperate turn,
Yea, curse his better angel from his side,
And fall to reprobation.


14

V,2,3568

(stage directions). [IAGO offers to stab EMILIA]

Gratiano. Fie!
Your sword upon a woman?


15

V,2,3585

(stage directions). [He runs at IAGO IAGO, from behind, stabs EMILIA, and exit]

Gratiano. The woman falls; sure, he hath kill'd his wife.


16

V,2,3587

Emilia. Ay, ay: O, lay me by my mistress' side.

Gratiano. He's gone, but his wife's kill'd.


17

V,2,3610

Othello. I have another weapon in this chamber;
It is a sword of Spain, the ice-brook's temper:—
O, here it is. Uncle, I must come forth.

Gratiano. [Within] If thou attempt it, it will cost thee dear:
Thou hast no weapon, and perforce must suffer.


18

V,2,3615

(stage directions). [Re-enter GRATIANO]

Gratiano. What is the matter?


19

V,2,3668

Lodovico. What, not to pray?

Gratiano. Torments will ope your lips.


20

V,2,3726

Lodovico. O bloody period!

Gratiano. All that's spoke is marr'd.
