1

I,1,18

(beginning of scene)

Gregory. No, for then we should be colliers.


2

I,1,20

Sampson. I mean, an we be in choler, we'll draw.

Gregory. Ay, while you live, draw your neck out o' the collar.


3

I,1,22

Sampson. I strike quickly, being moved.

Gregory. But thou art not quickly moved to strike.


4

I,1,24

Sampson. A dog of the house of Montague moves me.

Gregory. To move is to stir; and to be valiant is to stand:
therefore, if thou art moved, thou runn'st away.


5

I,1,28

Sampson. A dog of that house shall move me to stand: I will
take the wall of any man or maid of Montague's.

Gregory. That shows thee a weak slave; for the weakest goes
to the wall.


6

I,1,34

Sampson. True; and therefore women, being the weaker vessels,
are ever thrust to the wall: therefore I will push
Montague's men from the wall, and thrust his maids
to the wall.

Gregory. The quarrel is between our masters and us their men.


7

I,1,38

Sampson. 'Tis all one, I will show myself a tyrant: when I
have fought with the men, I will be cruel with the
maids, and cut off their heads.

Gregory. The heads of the maids?


8

I,1,41

Sampson. Ay, the heads of the maids, or their maidenheads;
take it in what sense thou wilt.

Gregory. They must take it in sense that feel it.


9

I,1,44

Sampson. Me they shall feel while I am able to stand: and
'tis known I am a pretty piece of flesh.

Gregory. 'Tis well thou art not fish; if thou hadst, thou
hadst been poor John. Draw thy tool! here comes
two of the house of the Montagues.


10

I,1,48

Sampson. My naked weapon is out: quarrel, I will back thee.

Gregory. How! turn thy back and run?


11

I,1,50

Sampson. Fear me not.

Gregory. No, marry; I fear thee!


12

I,1,52

Sampson. Let us take the law of our sides; let them begin.

Gregory. I will frown as I pass by, and let them take it as
they list.


13

I,1,62

Sampson. [Aside to GREGORY] Is the law of our side, if I say
ay?

Gregory. No.


14

I,1,65

Sampson. No, sir, I do not bite my thumb at you, sir, but I
bite my thumb, sir.

Gregory. Do you quarrel, sir?


15

I,1,70

Sampson. Well, sir.

Gregory. Say 'better:' here comes one of my master's kinsmen.
