1

Viola, disguise

Disguise, I see, thou art a wickedness
Wherein the pregnant enemy does much

2

Fabian, joke to the audience

If this were played upon a stage now, I could
condemn it as an improbable fiction.

Maria, to Sir Topaz, Diguise

Thou mightst have done this without thy beard / and gown. He sees thee not

4

Orsino, love

If music be the food of love, play on.
Give me excess of it, that, surfeiting,
The appetite may sicken and so die.

5

Orsino, Love for Olivia

O, when mine eyes did see Olivia first,
Methought she purged the air of pestilence.

6

Viola and her love for Orsno

I'll do my best
To woo your lady: (Aside). Yet a barful strife!
Whoe'er I woo, myself would be his wife.

7

Olivia falls in love

Thy tongue, thy face, thy limbs, actions and spirit
Do give thee five-fold blazon. Not too fast! Soft, soft!
Unless the master were the man. How now?
Even so quickly may one catch the plague?

8

Malvolio, ambition

To be Count Malvolio.

9

Orsino, love for Cesario or Viola? Gender

Cesario, come,
For so you shall be while you are a man.
But when in other habits you are seen,
Orsino's mistress, and his fancy's queen.

10

Orsino describes Cesario, Gender

That say thou art a man. Diana's lip
Is not more smooth and rubious, thy small pipe / Is as the maiden's organ, shrill and sound,
And all is semblative a woman's part.

11

Orsino, Love, Gender

There is no woman's sides / Can bide the beating of so strong a passion / As love doth give my heart; no woman's heart / So big, to hold so much; they lack retention.

12

Viola, love confession

My father had a daughter loved a man
As it might be, perhaps, were I a woman,
I should your lordship.

13

Malvolio, ambition

There is example for 't. The lady of the
Strachy married the yeoman of the wardrobe.

14

Orsino

Be not amazed; right noble is his blood.
If this be so, as yet the glass seems true,
I shall have share in this most happy wrack.
