1

I,1,294

Tranio, since for the great desire I had
To see fair Padua, nursery of arts,...

2

I,1,334

Gramercies, Tranio, well dost thou advise.
If, Biondello, thou wert come ashore,...

3

I,1,366

But in the other's silence do I see
Maid's mild behaviour and sobriety....

4

I,1,380

Hark, Tranio, thou mayst hear Minerva speak!

5

I,1,439

O Tranio, till I found it to be true,
I never thought it possible or likely....

6

I,1,454

Gramercies, lad. Go forward; this contents;
The rest will comfort, for thy counsel's sound.

7

I,1,458

O, yes, I saw sweet beauty in her face,
Such as the daughter of Agenor had,...

8

I,1,465

Tranio, I saw her coral lips to move,
And with her breath she did perfume the air;...

9

I,1,476

Ah, Tranio, what a cruel father's he!
But art thou not advis'd he took some care...

10

I,1,480

I have it, Tranio.

11

I,1,483

Tell me thine first.

12

I,1,487

It is. May it be done?

13

I,1,492

Basta, content thee, for I have it full.
We have not yet been seen in any house,...

14

I,1,512

Tranio, be so because Lucentio loves;
And let me be a slave t' achieve that maid...

15

I,1,520

Sirrah, come hither; 'tis no time to jest,
And therefore frame your manners to the time....

16

I,1,531

And not a jot of Tranio in your mouth:
Tranio is chang'd into Lucentio.

17

I,1,540

Tranio, let's go.
One thing more rests, that thyself execute-...

18

I,2,702

Whate'er I read to her, I'll plead for you
As for my patron, stand you so assur'd,...

19

I,2,779

[Aside] Well begun, Tranio.

20

I,2,802

Sir, give him head; I know he'll prove a jade.

21

III,1,1268

Fiddler, forbear; you grow too forward, sir.
Have you so soon forgot the entertainment...

22

III,1,1276

Preposterous ass, that never read so far
To know the cause why music was ordain'd!...

23

III,1,1292

That will be never- tune your instrument.

24

III,1,1294

Here, madam:
'Hic ibat Simois, hic est Sigeia tellus,...

25

III,1,1298

'Hic ibat' as I told you before- 'Simois' I am Lucentio-
'hic est' son unto Vincentio of Pisa- 'Sigeia tellus' disguised...

26

III,1,1305

Spit in the hole, man, and tune again.

27

III,1,1311

All but the bass.

28

III,1,1317

Mistrust it not- for sure, AEacides
Was Ajax, call'd so from his grandfather.

29

III,1,1327

Are you so formal, sir? Well, I must wait,
[Aside] And watch withal; for, but I be deceiv'd,...

30

III,1,1355

Faith, mistress, then I have no cause to stay.

31

III,2,1499

Were it not that my fellow schoolmaster
Doth watch Bianca's steps so narrowly,...

32

III,2,1610

Mistress, what's your opinion of your sister?

33

IV,2,1831

Now, mistress, profit you in what you read?

34

IV,2,1833

I read that I profess, 'The Art to Love.'

35

IV,2,1835

While you, sweet dear, prove mistress of my heart.

36

IV,2,1876

Then we are rid of Licio.

37

IV,2,1896

And what of him, Tranio?

38

IV,4,2235

What say'st thou, Biondello?

39

IV,4,2237

Biondello, what of that?

40

IV,4,2240

I pray thee moralize them.

41

IV,4,2243

And what of him?

42

IV,4,2245

And then?

43

IV,4,2248

And what of all this?

44

IV,4,2255

Hear'st thou, Biondello?

45

IV,4,2262

I may and will, if she be so contented.
She will be pleas'd; then wherefore should I doubt?...

46

V,1,2351

I fly, Biondello; but they may chance to need the at
home, therefore leave us.

47

V,1,2447

[Kneeling] Pardon, sweet father.

48

V,1,2452

Here's Lucentio,
Right son to the right Vincentio,...

49

V,1,2461

Love wrought these miracles. Bianca's love
Made me exchange my state with Tranio,...

50

V,1,2475

Look not pale, Bianca; thy father will not frown.

51

V,2,2489

At last, though long, our jarring notes agree;
And time it is when raging war is done...

52

V,2,2550

I thank thee for that gird, good Tranio.

53

V,2,2563

Twenty crowns.

54

V,2,2567

A hundred then.

55

V,2,2571

That will I.
Go, Biondello, bid your mistress come to me.

56

V,2,2575

I'll have no halves; I'll bear it all myself.
[Re-enter BIONDELLO]...

57

V,2,2612

Here is a wonder, if you talk of a wonder.

58

V,2,2634

I would your duty were as foolish too;
The wisdom of your duty, fair Bianca,...

59

V,2,2689

Well, go thy ways, old lad, for thou shalt ha't.

60

V,2,2691

But a harsh hearing when women are froward.

61

V,2,2698

'Tis a wonder, by your leave, she will be tam'd so.
