Flashcards in Lines Deck (79)
Sweet sir Andrew
Bless you, fair shrew
Accost sir Andrew, accost.
My niece's chambermaid
Good mistress accost, I desire better acquaintance.
My name is Mary, sir.
Good mistress Mary accost,-
You mistake, knight; accost is front her, board her, woo her, assail her.
By my troth, I would not undertake her in this company. Is that meaning of accost?
An thou let part so, sir Andrew, would thou mightst never draw sword again.
An you part so, mistress, I would I might never draw sword again. Fair lady, do you think you have fools in hand?
Sir, I have not you by the hand
Marry, but you shall have; and here's my hand
Now sir, thought is free, I pray you, bring your hand to the buttery bar and let it drink
Wherefore, sweet heart? What's your metaphor?
It's dry, sir
Why, I think so: I am not such an ass but I can keep my hand dry. But what's your jest?
A dry jest sir
Are you full of them?
I knight thou jackets a cup of canary: when did I see thee so put down
Never in your life, I think; unless you see canary put me down. Methinks sometimes j have no more wit than a Christian or an ordinary man has: but I am a great waste of need and j believe that does harm to my wit
An I thought that, I'ld forswear it. I'll ride home tomorrow, sir Toby.
Porquoi, my dear knight?
What is porquoi? Do or do not do? I would I had bestowed that time in the tongues that I have in fencing, dancing and bear baiting: o, had I but followed the arts.
Then hadst thou had an excellent head of hair.
Why, would that have mended my hair?
Past question; for thou sweat it will not curl by nature.
But it becomes me well enough, does't not?
Excellent; it hangs like flax in a distaff; and j hope to see a housewife take thee between her legs and spin it off.
Faith, I'll home tomorrow, sir Toby: your niece will not be seen; or if she be, it's four to one shell none of me: the count himself here hard by woos her.
... I have heard her swear't. Tut, there's life in't, man.
I'll stay a month longer. I am a fellow o' the strangest mind I' the world; I delight in masques and revels sometimes altogether.
Art thou good at these kickshawses, knight?
As any man in Illyria, whatsoever he be, under the degree of my betters; and yet I will not compare with an old man.
What is thy excellence in a galliard, knight?
Faith, I can cut a caper.
And I can cut the mutton to't
And I think I have the back trick simply as strong as any man in Illyria.
... It was formed under the star of a galliard
Ay' tis strong, and it does indifferent well in a flame colored stock. Shall we set about some revels?
What shall we do else? were we not born under Taurus?
Taurus! That sides and heart.
(Singing)...then come kiss me, sweet and twenty, youths a stuff will not endure
A mellifluous voice, as I am true knight
A contagious breath
Very sweet and contagious, I' faith
...three souls out of one weaver? Shall we do that?
An you love me, let's do't: I am dog at a catch
By'r lady, sir, and some dogs will catch well.
Moser rain. Let out catch be, thou knave.
Hold thy piece, thou knave, knight? I shall be constrained in't to call thee knave, knight.
Tis not the first time I have constrained one to call me knave. Begin, fool: it begins "hold thy piece".
I shall never begin if I hold my piece.
Good, I' faith. Come, begin.
Besides me, the knights in admirable fooling.
At, he does well enough if he be disposed, and so do I too: he does it with a better grace, but I do it more natural.
