Prologue,1,89

Lord. Do you intend to stay with me to-night?

Player. So please your lordship to accept our duty.

Prologue,1,95

Lord. With all my heart. This fellow I remember
Since once he play'd a farmer's eldest son;
'Twas where you woo'd the gentlewoman so well.
I have forgot your name; but, sure, that part
Was aptly fitted and naturally perform'd.

Player. I think 'twas Soto that your honour means.

Prologue,1,107

Lord. 'Tis very true; thou didst it excellent.
Well, you are come to me in happy time,
The rather for I have some sport in hand
Wherein your cunning can assist me much.
There is a lord will hear you play to-night;
But I am doubtful of your modesties,
Lest, over-eying of his odd behaviour,
For yet his honour never heard a play,
You break into some merry passion
And so offend him; for I tell you, sirs,
If you should smile, he grows impatient.

Player. Fear not, my lord; we can contain ourselves,
Were he the veriest antic in the world.
