1

I,1,16

Gregory, o' my word, we'll not carry coals.

2

I,1,19

I mean, an we be in choler, we'll draw.

3

I,1,21

I strike quickly, being moved.

4

I,1,23

A dog of the house of Montague moves me.

5

I,1,26

A dog of that house shall move me to stand: I will
take the wall of any man or maid of Montague's.

6

I,1,30

True; and therefore women, being the weaker vessels,
are ever thrust to the wall: therefore I will push
Montague's men from the wall, and thrust his maids
to the wall.

7

I,1,35

'Tis all one, I will show myself a tyrant: when I
have fought with the men, I will be cruel with the
maids, and cut off their heads.

8

I,1,39

Ay, the heads of the maids, or their maidenheads;
take it in what sense thou wilt.

9

I,1,42

Me they shall feel while I am able to stand: and
'tis known I am a pretty piece of flesh.

10

I,1,47

My naked weapon is out: quarrel, I will back thee.

11

I,1,49

Fear me not.

12

I,1,51

Let us take the law of our sides; let them begin.

13

I,1,54

Nay, as they dare. I will bite my thumb at them;
which is a disgrace to them, if they bear it.

14

I,1,58

I do bite my thumb, sir.

15

I,1,60

[Aside to GREGORY] Is the law of our side, if I say
ay?

16

I,1,63

No, sir, I do not bite my thumb at you, sir, but I
bite my thumb, sir.

17

I,1,67

If you do, sir, I am for you: I serve as good a man as you.

18

I,1,69

Well, sir.

19

I,1,71

Yes, better, sir.

20

I,1,73

Draw, if you be men. Gregory, remember thy swashing blow.
