1

I,1,122

Slender. Ay, it is no matter.

Nym. Slice, I say! pauca, pauca: slice! that's my humour.


2

I,1,150

Slender. By these gloves, then, 'twas he.

Nym. Be avised, sir, and pass good humours: I will say
'marry trap' with you, if you run the nuthook's
humour on me; that is the very note of it.


3

I,3,326

(stage directions). [Exit BARDOLPH]

Nym. He was gotten in drink: is not the humour conceited?


4

I,3,330

Falstaff. I am glad I am so acquit of this tinderbox: his
thefts were too open; his filching was like an
unskilful singer; he kept not time.

Nym. The good humour is to steal at a minute's rest.


5

I,3,351

Pistol. He hath studied her will, and translated her will,
out of honesty into English.

Nym. The anchor is deep: will that humour pass?


6

I,3,355

Pistol. As many devils entertain; and 'To her, boy,' say I.

Nym. The humour rises; it is good: humour me the angels.


7

I,3,362

Pistol. Then did the sun on dunghill shine.

Nym. I thank thee for that humour.


8

I,3,375

Pistol. Shall I Sir Pandarus of Troy become,
And by my side wear steel? then, Lucifer take all!

Nym. I will run no base humour: here, take the
humour-letter: I will keep the havior of reputation.


9

I,3,388

Pistol. Let vultures gripe thy guts! for gourd and fullam holds,
And high and low beguiles the rich and poor:
Tester I'll have in pouch when thou shalt lack,
Base Phrygian Turk!

Nym. I have operations which be humours of revenge.


10

I,3,390

Pistol. Wilt thou revenge?

Nym. By welkin and her star!


11

I,3,392

Pistol. With wit or steel?

Nym. With both the humours, I:
I will discuss the humour of this love to Page.


12

I,3,398

Pistol. And I to Ford shall eke unfold
How Falstaff, varlet vile,
His dove will prove, his gold will hold,
And his soft couch defile.

Nym. My humour shall not cool: I will incense Page to
deal with poison; I will possess him with
yellowness, for the revolt of mine is dangerous:
that is my true humour.


13

II,1,689

Ford. [Aside] I will be patient; I will find out this.

Nym. [To PAGE] And this is true; I like not the humour
of lying. He hath wronged me in some humours: I
should have borne the humoured letter to her; but I
have a sword and it shall bite upon my necessity.
He loves your wife; there's the short and the long.
My name is Corporal Nym; I speak and I avouch; 'tis
true: my name is Nym and Falstaff loves your wife.
Adieu. I love not the humour of bread and cheese,
and there's the humour of it. Adieu.
