1 I, 5, 653
  • By'r lady, thirty years.
  • By'r lady, thirty years.
  • Capulet. Welcome, gentlemen! ladies that have their toes
    Unplagued with corns will have a bout with you.
    Ah ha, my mistresses! which of you all
    Will now deny to dance? she that makes dainty,
    She, I'll swear, hath corns; am I come near ye now?
    Welcome, gentlemen! I have seen the day
    That I have worn a visor and could tell
    A whispering tale in a fair lady's ear,
    Such as would please: 'tis gone, 'tis gone, 'tis gone:
    You are welcome, gentlemen! come, musicians, play.
    A hall, a hall! give room! and foot it, girls.
    [Music plays, and they dance]
    More light, you knaves; and turn the tables up,
    And quench the fire, the room is grown too hot.
    Ah, sirrah, this unlook'd-for sport comes well.
    Nay, sit, nay, sit, good cousin Capulet;
    For you and I are past our dancing days:
    How long is't now since last yourself and I
    Were in a mask?

    Second Capulet. By'r lady, thirty years.

2 I, 5, 658
  • 'Tis more, 'tis more, his son is elder, sir;
    His son is thirty.
  • 'Tis more, 'tis more, his son is elder, sir;
    His son is thirty.
  • Capulet. What, man! 'tis not so much, 'tis not so much:
    'Tis since the nuptials of Lucentio,
    Come pentecost as quickly as it will,
    Some five and twenty years; and then we mask'd.

    Second Capulet. 'Tis more, 'tis more, his son is elder, sir;
    His son is thirty.
