1

I,1,353

[To BAPTISTA] I pray you, sir, is it your will
To make a stale of me amongst these mates?

2

I,1,357

I' faith, sir, you shall never need to fear;
Iwis it is not halfway to her heart;...

3

I,1,374

A pretty peat! it is best
Put finger in the eye, an she knew why.

4

I,1,399

Why, and I trust I may go too, may I not?
What! shall I be appointed hours, as though, belike,...

5

II,1,844

Of all thy suitors here I charge thee tell
Whom thou lov'st best. See thou dissemble not.

6

II,1,849

Minion, thou liest. Is't not Hortensio?

7

II,1,852

O then, belike, you fancy riches more:
You will have Gremio to keep you fair.

8

II,1,858

[Strikes her] If that be jest, then an the rest was so.

9

II,1,867

Her silence flouts me, and I'll be reveng'd.

10

II,1,871

What, will you not suffer me? Nay, now I see
She is your treasure, she must have a husband;...

11

II,1,1029

Well have you heard, but something hard of hearing:
They call me Katherine that do talk of me.

12

II,1,1041

Mov'd! in good time! Let him that mov'd you hither
Remove you hence. I knew you at the first...

13

II,1,1045

A join'd-stool.

14

II,1,1047

Asses are made to bear, and so are you.

15

II,1,1049

No such jade as you, if me you mean.

16

II,1,1052

Too light for such a swain as you to catch;
And yet as heavy as my weight should be.

17

II,1,1055

Well ta'en, and like a buzzard.

18

II,1,1057

Ay, for a turtle, as he takes a buzzard.

19

II,1,1059

If I be waspish, best beware my sting.

20

II,1,1061

Ay, if the fool could find it where it lies.

21

II,1,1064

In his tongue.

22

II,1,1066

Yours, if you talk of tales; and so farewell.

23

II,1,1069

That I'll try. [She strikes him]

24

II,1,1071

So may you lose your arms.
If you strike me, you are no gentleman;...

25

II,1,1075

What is your crest- a coxcomb?

26

II,1,1077

No cock of mine: you crow too like a craven.

27

II,1,1079

It is my fashion, when I see a crab.

28

II,1,1081

There is, there is.

29

II,1,1083

Had I a glass I would.

30

II,1,1085

Well aim'd of such a young one.

31

II,1,1087

Yet you are wither'd.

32

II,1,1089

I care not.

33

II,1,1091

I chafe you, if I tarry; let me go.

34

II,1,1107

Go, fool, and whom thou keep'st command.

35

II,1,1112

Where did you study all this goodly speech?

36

II,1,1114

A witty mother! witless else her son.

37

II,1,1116

Yes, keep you warm.

38

II,1,1136

Call you me daughter? Now I promise you
You have show'd a tender fatherly regard...

39

II,1,1150

I'll see thee hang'd on Sunday first.

40

III,2,1371

No shame but mine; I must, forsooth, be forc'd
To give my hand, oppos'd against my heart,...

41

III,2,1389

Would Katherine had never seen him though!

42

III,2,1565

Let me entreat you.

43

III,2,1567

Are you content to stay?

44

III,2,1570

Now, if you love me, stay.

45

III,2,1573

Nay, then,
Do what thou canst, I will not go to-day;...

46

III,2,1582

I will be angry; what hast thou to do?
Father, be quiet; he shall stay my leisure.

47

III,2,1585

Gentlemen, forward to the bridal dinner.
I see a woman may be made a fool...

48

IV,1,1760

Patience, I pray you; 'twas a fault unwilling.

49

IV,1,1777

I pray you, husband, be not so disquiet;
The meat was well, if you were so contented.

50

IV,3,1958

The more my wrong, the more his spite appears.
What, did he marry me to famish me?...

51

IV,3,1974

'Tis passing good; I prithee let me have it.

52

IV,3,1977

I like it well; good Grumio, fetch it me.

53

IV,3,1980

A dish that I do love to feed upon.

54

IV,3,1982

Why then the beef, and let the mustard rest.

55

IV,3,1985

Then both, or one, or anything thou wilt.

56

IV,3,1987

Go, get thee gone, thou false deluding slave,
[Beats him]...

57

IV,3,1996

Faith, as cold as can be.

58

IV,3,2004

I pray you, let it stand.

59

IV,3,2007

I thank you, sir.

60

IV,3,2032

I'll have no bigger; this doth fit the time,
And gentlewomen wear such caps as these.

61

IV,3,2037

Why, sir, I trust I may have leave to speak;
And speak I will. I am no child, no babe....

62

IV,3,2048

Love me or love me not, I like the cap;
And it I will have, or I will have none. Exit HABERDASHER

63

IV,3,2065

I never saw a better fashion'd gown,
More quaint, more pleasing, nor more commendable;...

64

IV,3,2148

I dare assure you, sir, 'tis almost two,
And 'twill be supper-time ere you come there.

65

IV,5,2269

The moon? The sun! It is not moonlight now.

66

IV,5,2271

I know it is the sun that shines so bright.

67

IV,5,2278

Forward, I pray, since we have come so far,
And be it moon, or sun, or what you please;...

68

IV,5,2283

I know it is the moon.

69

IV,5,2285

Then, God be bless'd, it is the blessed sun;
But sun it is not, when you say it is not;...

70

IV,5,2304

Young budding virgin, fair and fresh and sweet,
Whither away, or where is thy abode?...

71

IV,5,2312

Pardon, old father, my mistaking eyes,
That have been so bedazzled with the sun...

72

V,1,2479

Husband, let's follow to see the end of this ado.

73

V,1,2481

What, in the midst of the street?

74

V,1,2483

No, sir; God forbid; but asham'd to kiss.

75

V,1,2485

Nay, I will give thee a kiss; now pray thee, love, stay.

76

V,2,2510

Mistress, how mean you that?

77

V,2,2515

'He that is giddy thinks the world turns round.'
I pray you tell me what you meant by that.

78

V,2,2520

A very mean meaning.

79

V,2,2522

And I am mean, indeed, respecting you.

80

V,2,2605

What is your sir, that you send for me?

81

V,2,2607

They sit conferring by the parlour fire.

82

V,2,2644

Fie, fie! unknit that threatening unkind brow,
And dart not scornful glances from those eyes...
