IV,2,1904

God save you, sir!

2

IV,2,1907

Sir, at the farthest for a week or two;
But then up farther, and as far as Rome;
And so to Tripoli, if God lend me life.

3

IV,2,1911

Of Mantua.

4

IV,2,1914

My life, sir! How, I pray? For that goes hard.

5

IV,2,1922

Alas, sir, it is worse for me than so!
For I have bills for money by exchange
From Florence, and must here deliver them.

6

IV,2,1928

Ay, sir, in Pisa have I often been,
Pisa renowned for grave citizens.

7

IV,2,1931

I know him not, but I have heard of him,
A merchant of incomparable wealth.

8

IV,2,1947

O, sir, I do; and will repute you ever
The patron of my life and liberty.

9

IV,4,2159

Ay, what else? And, but I be deceived,
Signior Baptista may remember me
Near twenty years ago in Genoa,
Where we were lodgers at the Pegasus.

10

IV,4,2166

I warrant you. But, sir, here comes your boy;
'Twere good he were school'd.

11

IV,4,2182

Soft, son!
Sir, by your leave: having come to Padua
To gather in some debts, my son Lucentio
Made me acquainted with a weighty cause
Of love between your daughter and himself;
And- for the good report I hear of you,
And for the love he beareth to your daughter,
And she to him- to stay him not too long,
I am content, in a good father's care,
To have him match'd; and, if you please to like
No worse than I, upon some agreement
Me shall you find ready and willing
With one consent to have her so bestow'd;
For curious I cannot be with you,
Signior Baptista, of whom I hear so well.

12

V,1,2366

What's he that knocks as he would beat down the gate?

13

V,1,2368

He's within, sir, but not to be spoken withal.

14

V,1,2371

Keep your hundred pounds to yourself; he shall need none so
long as I live.

15

V,1,2377

Thou liest: his father is come from Padua, and here looking
out at the window.

16

V,1,2380

Ay, sir; so his mother says, if I may believe her.

17

V,1,2383

Lay hands on the villain; I believe 'a means to cozen
somebody in this city under my countenance.

18

V,1,2401

Help, son! help, Signior Baptista! Exit from above

19

V,1,2422

Away, away, mad ass! His name is Lucentio; and he is mine
only son, and heir to the lands of me, Signior Vicentio.

20

V,1,2436

Swear if thou dar'st.
