  • Why, Sir John, what do you think, Sir John? do you
    think I keep thieves in my house? I have searched,

    a hair; and I'll be sworn my pocket was picked. Go
    to, you are a woman, go.

    called so in mine own house before.

    John, for your diet and by-drinkings, and money lent

    bakers' wives, and they have made bolters of them.

    Hostess Quickly. Now, as I am a true woman, holland of eight

    how oft, that ring was copper!
  • Falstaff. How! poor? look upon his face; what call you rich?
    let them coin his nose, let them coin his cheeks:
    Ill not pay a denier. What, will you make a younker
    of me? shall I not take mine case in mine inn but I
    shall have my pocket picked? I have lost a
    seal-ring of my grandfather's worth forty mark.

    Hostess Quickly. O Jesu, I have heard the prince tell him, I know not
    how oft, that ring was copper!

    of you, like a foul-mouthed man as he is; and said
    he would cudgel you.
  • Henry V. A trifle, some eight-penny matter.

    Hostess Quickly. So I told him, my lord; and I said I heard your
    grace say so: and, my lord, he speaks most vilely

  • Falstaff. There's no more faith in thee than in a stewed
    prune; nor no more truth in thee than in a drawn

    setting thy knighthood aside, thou art a knave to
    call me so.
  • Falstaff. What thing! why, a thing to thank God on.

    Hostess Quickly. I am no thing to thank God on, I would thou
    shouldst know it; I am an honest man's wife: and,
    setting thy knighthood aside, thou art a knave to
    call me so.

21 III / 3

  • Thou art an unjust man in saying so: thou or any
    man knows where to have me,...
  • Thou art an unjust man in saying so: thou or any
    man knows where to have me, thou knave, thou!

    where to have her.

    Hostess Quickly. Thou art an unjust man in saying so: thou or any
    man knows where to have me, thou knave, thou!
