Act IV, Scene 5

Mytilene. A street before the brothel.


[Enter, from the brothel, two Gentlemen]

  • Second Gentleman. No, nor never shall do in such a place as this, she
    being once gone.
  • First Gentleman. But to have divinity preached there! did you ever
    dream of such a thing? 1940
  • Second Gentleman. No, no. Come, I am for no more bawdy-houses:
    shall's go hear the vestals sing?
  • First Gentleman. I'll do any thing now that is virtuous; but I
    am out of the road of rutting for ever.
