II,2,1075

Good dawning to thee, friend. Art of this house?

10

II,2,1077

Where may we set our horses?

11

II,2,1079

Prithee, if thou lov'st me, tell me.

12

II,2,1081

Why then, I care not for thee.

13

II,2,1084

Why dost thou use me thus? I know thee not.

14

II,2,1086

What dost thou know me for?

15

II,2,1096

Why, what a monstrous fellow art thou, thus to rail on one
that's neither known of thee nor knows thee!

16

Away! I have nothing to do with thee.

17

II,2,1109

Help, ho! murther! help!

18

II,2,1112

Help, ho! murther! murther!

19

II,2,1122

I am scarce in breath, my lord.

20

II,2,1129

This ancient ruffian, sir, whose life I have spar'd
At suit of his grey beard-

21

II,2,1183

I never gave him any.
It pleas'd the King his master very late
To strike at me, upon his misconstruction;
When he, conjunct, and flattering his displeasure,
Tripp'd me behind; being down, insulted, rail'd
And put upon him such a deal of man
That worthied him, got praises of the King
For him attempting who was self-subdu'd;
And, in the fleshment of this dread exploit,
Drew on me here again.

22

III,7,2134

My Lord of Gloucester hath convey'd him hence.
Some five or six and thirty of his knights,
Hot questrists after him, met him at gate;
Who, with some other of the lord's dependants,
Are gone with him towards Dover, where they boast
To have well-armed friends.

23

IV,2,2341

Madam, within, but never man so chang'd.
I told him of the army that was landed:
He smil'd at it. I told him you were coming:
His answer was, 'The worse.' Of Gloucester's treachery
And of the loyal service of his son
When I inform'd him, then he call'd me sot
And told me I had turn'd the wrong side out.
What most he should dislike seems pleasant to him;
What like, offensive.

24

IV,2,2370

Madam, here comes my lord. Exit.

25

IV,5,2552

Ay, madam.

26

IV,5,2554

Madam, with much ado.
Your sister is the better soldier.

27

IV,5,2557

No, madam.

28

IV,5,2559

I know not, lady.

29

IV,5,2567

I must needs after him, madam, with my letter.

30

IV,5,2570

I may not, madam.
My lady charg'd my duty in this business.

31

IV,5,2576

Madam, I had rather-

32

IV,5,2581

I, madam?

33

IV,5,2593

Would I could meet him, madam! I should show
What party I do follow.

34

IV,6,2844

A proclaim'd prize! Most happy!
That eyeless head of thine was first fram'd flesh
To raise my fortunes. Thou old unhappy traitor,
Briefly thyself remember. The sword is out
That must destroy thee.

35

IV,6,2852

Wherefore, bold peasant,
Dar'st thou support a publish'd traitor? Hence!
Lest that th' infection of his fortune take
Like hold on thee. Let go his arm.

36

IV,6,2857

Let go, slave, or thou diest!

37

IV,6,2863

Out, dunghill!

38

IV,6,2867

Slave, thou hast slain me. Villain, take my purse.
If ever thou wilt thrive, bury my body,
And give the letters which thou find'st about me
To Edmund Earl of Gloucester. Seek him out
Upon the British party. O, untimely death! Death!
