1

Sweet sir Andrew

Toby belch

Bless you, fair shrew

2

Accost sir Andrew, accost.

Toby belch

What's that?

3

My niece's chambermaid

Toby belch

Good mistress accost, I desire better acquaintance.

4

My name is Mary, sir.

Maria

Good mistress Mary accost,-

5

You mistake, knight; accost is front her, board her, woo her, assail her.

Toby belch

By my troth, I would not undertake her in this company. Is that meaning of accost?

6

An thou let part so, sir Andrew, would thou mightst never draw sword again.

Toby belch

An you part so, mistress, I would I might never draw sword again. Fair lady, do you think you have fools in hand?

7

Sir, I have not you by the hand

Maria

Marry, but you shall have; and here's my hand

8

Now sir, thought is free, I pray you, bring your hand to the buttery bar and let it drink

Maria

Wherefore, sweet heart? What's your metaphor?

9

It's dry, sir

Maria

Why, I think so: I am not such an ass but I can keep my hand dry. But what's your jest?

10

A dry jest sir

Maria

Are you full of them?

11

I knight thou jackets a cup of canary: when did I see thee so put down

Toby belch

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

12

No question

Toby belch

An I thought that, I'ld forswear it. I'll ride home tomorrow, sir Toby.

13

Porquoi, my dear knight?

Toby belch

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.

14

Then hadst thou had an excellent head of hair.

Toby belch

Why, would that have mended my hair?

15

Past question; for thou sweat it will not curl by nature.

Toby belch

But it becomes me well enough, does't not?

16

Excellent; it hangs like flax in a distaff; and j hope to see a housewife take thee between her legs and spin it off.

Toby belch

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.

17

... I have heard her swear't. Tut, there's life in't, man.

Toby belch

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.

18

Art thou good at these kickshawses, knight?

Toby belch

As any man in Illyria, whatsoever he be, under the degree of my betters; and yet I will not compare with an old man.

19

What is thy excellence in a galliard, knight?

Toby belch

Faith, I can cut a caper.

20

And I can cut the mutton to't

Toby belch

And I think I have the back trick simply as strong as any man in Illyria.

21

... It was formed under the star of a galliard

Toby belch

Ay' tis strong, and it does indifferent well in a flame colored stock. Shall we set about some revels?

22

What shall we do else? were we not born under Taurus?

Toby belch

Taurus! That sides and heart.

23

(Singing)...then come kiss me, sweet and twenty, youths a stuff will not endure

Clown

A mellifluous voice, as I am true knight

24

A contagious breath

Toby belch

Very sweet and contagious, I' faith

25

...three souls out of one weaver? Shall we do that?

Tony belch

An you love me, let's do't: I am dog at a catch

26

By'r lady, sir, and some dogs will catch well.

Clown

Moser rain. Let out catch be, thou knave.

27

Hold thy piece, thou knave, knight? I shall be constrained in't to call thee knave, knight.

Clown

Tis not the first time I have constrained one to call me knave. Begin, fool: it begins "hold thy piece".

28

I shall never begin if I hold my piece.

Clown

Good, I' faith. Come, begin.

29

Besides me, the knights in admirable fooling.

Clown

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.

30

Marry, sir, sometimes he is a kind of Puritan.

Maria

O, if I thought that i'ld beat him like a dog.
