  • Good morrow, carriers. What's o'clock?
  • Good morrow, carriers. What's o'clock?
  • First Carrier. God's body! the turkeys in my pannier are quite
    starved. What, ostler! A plague on thee! hast thou
    never an eye in thy head? canst not hear? An
    'twere not as good deed as drink, to break the pate
    on thee, I am a very villain. Come, and be hanged!
    hast thou no faith in thee?

    Gadshill. Good morrow, carriers. What's o'clock?

2 II / 1
  • I pray thee lend me thy lantern, to see my gelding
    in the stable.
  • I pray thee lend me thy lantern, to see my gelding
    in the stable.
  • First Carrier. I think it be two o'clock.

    Gadshill. I pray thee lend me thy lantern, to see my gelding
    in the stable.

3 II / 1
  • I pray thee, lend me thine.
  • I pray thee, lend me thine.
  • First Carrier. Nay, by God, soft; I know a trick worth two of that, i' faith.

    Gadshill. I pray thee, lend me thine.

4 II / 1
  • Sirrah carrier, what time do you mean to come to London?
  • Sirrah carrier, what time do you mean to come to London?
  • Second Carrier. Ay, when? can'st tell? Lend me thy lantern, quoth
    he? marry, I'll see thee hanged first.

    Gadshill. Sirrah carrier, what time do you mean to come to London?

5 II / 1
  • What, ho! chamberlain!
  • What, ho! chamberlain!
  • Second Carrier. Time enough to go to bed with a candle, I warrant
    thee. Come, neighbour Mugs, we'll call up the
    gentleman: they will along with company, for they
    have great charge.

    Gadshill. What, ho! chamberlain!

  • That's even as fair as--at hand, quoth the
    chamberlain; for thou variest no more from picking
    of purses than giving direction doth from labouring;
    thou layest the plot how.
  • Chamberlain. [Within] At hand, quoth pick-purse.

    Gadshill. That's even as fair as--at hand, quoth the
    chamberlain; for thou variest no more from picking
    of purses than giving direction doth from labouring;
    thou layest the plot how.

  • Sirrah, if they meet not with Saint Nicholas'
    clerks, I'll give thee this neck.
  • Chamberlain. Good morrow, Master Gadshill. It holds current that
    I told you yesternight: there's a franklin in the
    wild of Kent hath brought three hundred marks with
    him in gold: I heard him tell it to one of his
    company last night at supper; a kind of auditor; one
    that hath abundance of charge too, God knows what.
    They are up already, and call for eggs and butter;
    they will away presently.

    Gadshill. Sirrah, if they meet not with Saint Nicholas'
    clerks, I'll give thee this neck.

  • What talkest thou to me of the hangman? if I hang,
    I'll make a fat pair of gallows; for if I hang, old
    Sir John hangs with me, and thou knowest he is no
    starveling. Tut! there are other Trojans that thou
    dreamest not of, the which for sport sake are
    content to do the profession some grace; that would,
    if matters should be looked into, for their own
    credit sake, make all whole. I am joined with no
    foot-land rakers, no long-staff sixpenny strikers,
    none of these mad mustachio purple-hued malt-worms;
    but with nobility and tranquillity, burgomasters and
    great oneyers, such as can hold in, such as will
    strike sooner than speak, and speak sooner than
    drink, and drink sooner than pray: and yet, zounds,
    I lie; for they pray continually to their saint, the
    commonwealth; or rather, not pray to her, but prey
    on her, for they ride up and down on her and make
    her their boots.
  • Chamberlain. No, I'll none of it: I pray thee keep that for the
    hangman; for I know thou worshippest St. Nicholas
    as truly as a man of falsehood may.

    Gadshill. What talkest thou to me of the hangman? if I hang,
    I'll make a fat pair of gallows; for if I hang, old
    Sir John hangs with me, and thou knowest he is no
    starveling. Tut! there are other Trojans that thou
    dreamest not of, the which for sport sake are
    content to do the profession some grace; that would,
    if matters should be looked into, for their own
    credit sake, make all whole. I am joined with no
    foot-land rakers, no long-staff sixpenny strikers,
    none of these mad mustachio purple-hued malt-worms;
    but with nobility and tranquillity, burgomasters and
    great oneyers, such as can hold in, such as will
    strike sooner than speak, and speak sooner than
    drink, and drink sooner than pray: and yet, zounds,
    I lie; for they pray continually to their saint, the
    commonwealth; or rather, not pray to her, but prey
    on her, for they ride up and down on her and make
    her their boots.

  • She will, she will; justice hath liquored her. We
    steal as in a castle, cocksure; we have the receipt
    of fern-seed, we walk invisible.
  • Chamberlain. What, the commonwealth their boots? will she hold
    out water in foul way?

    Gadshill. She will, she will; justice hath liquored her. We
    steal as in a castle, cocksure; we have the receipt
    of fern-seed, we walk invisible.

  • Give me thy hand: thou shalt have a share in our
    purchase, as I am a true man.
  • Chamberlain. Nay, by my faith, I think you are more beholding to
    the night than to fern-seed for your walking invisible.

    Gadshill. Give me thy hand: thou shalt have a share in our
    purchase, as I am a true man.

  • Go to; 'homo' is a common name to all men. Bid the
    ostler bring my gelding out of the stable. Farewell,
    you muddy knave.
  • Chamberlain. Nay, rather let me have it, as you are a false thief.

    Gadshill. Go to; 'homo' is a common name to all men. Bid the
    ostler bring my gelding out of the stable. Farewell,
    you muddy knave.

12 II / 2
  • Stand.
  • Stand.
  • Falstaff. Go, hang thyself in thine own heir-apparent
    garters! If I be ta'en, I'll peach for this. An I
    have not ballads made on you all and sung to filthy
    tunes, let a cup of sack be my poison: when a jest
    is so forward, and afoot too! I hate it.

    Gadshill. Stand.

13 II / 2
  • There's enough to make us all.
  • There's enough to make us all.
  • Falstaff. You lie, ye rogue; 'tis going to the king's tavern.

    Gadshill. There's enough to make us all.

  • Some eight or ten.
  • Peto. How many be there of them?

    Gadshill. Some eight or ten.

  • Henry V. Speak, sirs; how was it?

    Gadshill. We four set upon some dozen--

  • And bound them.
  • And bound them.
  • Falstaff. Sixteen at least, my lord.

    Gadshill. And bound them.

17 II / 4
  • As we were sharing, some six or seven fresh men set upon us--
  • As we were sharing, some six or seven fresh men set upon us--
  • Falstaff. You rogue, they were bound, every man of them; or I
    am a Jew else, an Ebrew Jew.

    Gadshill. As we were sharing, some six or seven fresh men set upon us--
