II,4,1259

Anon!

2

II,4,1312

I saw no man use you a pleasure; if I had, my weapon
should quickly have been out, I warrant you: I dare
draw as soon as another man, if I see occasion in a
good quarrel, and the law on my side.

3

II,4,1371

Anon!

4

IV,5,2762

Musicians, O, musicians, 'Heart's ease, Heart's
ease:' O, an you will have me live, play 'Heart's ease.'

5

IV,5,2765

O, musicians, because my heart itself plays 'My
heart is full of woe:' O, play me some merry dump,
to comfort me.

6

IV,5,2769

You will not, then?

7

IV,5,2771

I will then give it you soundly.

8

IV,5,2773

No money, on my faith, but the gleek;
I will give you the minstrel.

9

IV,5,2776

Then will I lay the serving-creature's dagger on
your pate. I will carry no crotchets: I'll re you,
I'll fa you; do you note me?

10

IV,5,2781

Then have at you with my wit! I will dry-beat you
with an iron wit, and put up my iron dagger. Answer
me like men:
'When griping grief the heart doth wound,
And doleful dumps the mind oppress,
Then music with her silver sound'—
why 'silver sound'? why 'music with her silver
sound'? What say you, Simon Catling?

11

IV,5,2790

Pretty! What say you, Hugh Rebeck?

12

IV,5,2792

Pretty too! What say you, James Soundpost?

13

IV,5,2794

O, I cry you mercy; you are the singer: I will say
for you. It is 'music with her silver sound,'
because musicians have no gold for sounding:
'Then music with her silver sound
With speedy help doth lend redress.'
