1

II,1,509

Good morrow, Lieutenant Bardolph.

2

II,1,511

For my part, I care not: I say little; but when
time shall serve, there shall be smiles; but that
shall be as it may. I dare not fight; but I will
wink and hold out mine iron: it is a simple one; but
what though? it will toast cheese, and it will
endure cold as another man's sword will: and
there's an end.

3

II,1,521

Faith, I will live so long as I may, that's the
certain of it; and when I cannot live any longer, I
will do as I may: that is my rest, that is the
rendezvous of it.

4

II,1,528

I cannot tell: things must be as they may: men may
sleep, and they may have their throats about them at
that time; and some say knives have edges. It must
be as it may: though patience be a tired mare, yet
she will plod. There must be conclusions. Well, I
cannot tell.

5

II,1,547

Pish!

6

II,1,550

Will you shog off? I would have you solus.

7

II,1,559

I am not Barbason; you cannot conjure me. I have an
humour to knock you indifferently well. If you grow
foul with me, Pistol, I will scour you with my
rapier, as I may, in fair terms: if you would walk
off, I would prick your guts a little, in good
terms, as I may: and that's the humour of it.

8

II,1,574

I will cut thy throat, one time or other, in fair
terms: that is the humour of it.

9

II,1,599

You'll pay me the eight shillings I won of you at betting?

10

II,1,601

That now I will have: that's the humour of it.

11

II,1,610

I shall have my eight shillings I won of you at betting?

12

II,1,618

I shall have my noble?

13

II,1,620

Well, then, that's the humour of't.

14

II,1,626

The king hath run bad humours on the knight; that's
the even of it.

15

II,1,630

The king is a good king: but it must be as it may;
he passes some humours and careers.

16

II,3,859

They say he cried out of sack.

17

II,3,875

Shall we shog? the king will be gone from
Southampton.

18

II,3,891

I cannot kiss, that is the humour of it; but, adieu.

19

III,2,1129

Pray thee, corporal, stay: the knocks are too hot;
and, for mine own part, I have not a case of lives:
the humour of it is too hot, that is the very
plain-song of it.

20

III,2,1153

These be good humours! your honour wins bad humours.
