1

I,2,171

Go bear it to the Centaur, where we host,
And stay there, Dromio, till I come to thee....

2

I,2,182

A trusty villain, sir, that very oft,
When I am dull with care and melancholy,...

3

I,2,193

Farewell till then: I will go lose myself
And wander up and down to view the city.

4

I,2,197

He that commends me to mine own content
Commends me to the thing I cannot get....

5

I,2,218

Stop in your wind, sir: tell me this, I pray:
Where have you left the money that I gave you?

6

I,2,223

I am not in a sportive humour now:
Tell me, and dally not, where is the money?...

7

I,2,233

Come, Dromio, come, these jests are out of season;
Reserve them till a merrier hour than this....

8

I,2,237

Come on, sir knave, have done your foolishness,
And tell me how thou hast disposed thy charge.

9

I,2,242

In what safe place you have bestow'd my money,
Or I shall break that merry sconce of yours...

10

I,2,251

Thy mistress' marks? what mistress, slave, hast thou?

11

I,2,255

What, wilt thou flout me thus unto my face,
Being forbid? There, take you that, sir knave.

12

I,2,260

Upon my life, by some device or other
The villain is o'er-raught of all my money....

13

II,2,393

The gold I gave to Dromio is laid up
Safe at the Centaur; and the heedful slave...

14

II,2,407

Even now, even here, not half an hour since.

15

II,2,410

Villain, thou didst deny the gold's receipt,
And told'st me of a mistress and a dinner;...

16

II,2,415

Yea, dost thou jeer and flout me in the teeth?
Think'st thou I jest? Hold, take thou that, and that.

17

II,2,420

Because that I familiarly sometimes
Do use you for my fool and chat with you,...

18

II,2,434

Dost thou not know?

19

II,2,436

Shall I tell you why?

20

II,2,439

Why, first,—for flouting me; and then, wherefore—
For urging it the second time to me.

21

II,2,445

Thank me, sir, for what?

22

II,2,447

I'll make you amends next, to give you nothing for
something. But say, sir, is it dinner-time?

23

II,2,450

In good time, sir; what's that?

24

II,2,452

Well, sir, then 'twill be dry.

25

II,2,454

Your reason?

26

II,2,457

Well, sir, learn to jest in good time: there's a
time for all things.

27

II,2,460

By what rule, sir?

28

II,2,463

Let's hear it.

29

II,2,466

May he not do it by fine and recovery?

30

II,2,469

Why is Time such a niggard of hair, being, as it is,
so plentiful an excrement?

31

II,2,473

Why, but there's many a man hath more hair than wit.

32

II,2,475

Why, thou didst conclude hairy men plain dealers without wit.

33

II,2,478

For what reason?

34

II,2,480

Nay, not sound, I pray you.

35

II,2,482

Nay, not sure, in a thing falsing.

36

II,2,484

Name them.

37

II,2,488

You would all this time have proved there is no
time for all things.

38

II,2,492

But your reason was not substantial, why there is no
time to recover.

39

II,2,496

I knew 'twould be a bald conclusion:
But, soft! who wafts us yonder?

40

II,2,536

Plead you to me, fair dame? I know you not:
In Ephesus I am but two hours old,...

41

II,2,544

By Dromio?

42

II,2,549

Did you converse, sir, with this gentlewoman?
What is the course and drift of your compact?

43

II,2,552

Villain, thou liest; for even her very words
Didst thou deliver to me on the mart.

44

II,2,555

How can she thus then call us by our names,
Unless it be by inspiration.

45

II,2,570

To me she speaks; she moves me for her theme:
What, was I married to her in my dream?...

46

II,2,585

I think thou art in mind, and so am I.

47

II,2,587

Thou hast thine own form.

48

II,2,602

Am I in earth, in heaven, or in hell?
Sleeping or waking? mad or well-advised?...

49

III,2,791

Sweet mistress—what your name is else, I know not,
Nor by what wonder you do hit of mine,—...

50

III,2,816

Not mad, but mated; how, I do not know.

51

III,2,818

For gazing on your beams, fair sun, being by.

52

III,2,820

As good to wink, sweet love, as look on night.

53

III,2,822

Thy sister's sister.

54

III,2,824

No;
It is thyself, mine own self's better part,...

55

III,2,830

Call thyself sister, sweet, for I am thee.
Thee will I love and with thee lead my life:...

56

III,2,838

Why, how now, Dromio! where runn'st thou so fast?

57

III,2,841

Thou art Dromio, thou art my man, thou art thyself.

58

III,2,843

What woman's man? and how besides thyself? besides thyself?

59

III,2,846

What claim lays she to thee?

60

III,2,851

What is she?

61

III,2,856

How dost thou mean a fat marriage?

62

III,2,863

What complexion is she of?

63

III,2,867

That's a fault that water will mend.

64

III,2,869

What's her name?

65

III,2,873

Then she bears some breadth?

66

III,2,877

In what part of her body stands Ireland?

67

III,2,879

Where Scotland?

68

III,2,881

Where France?

69

III,2,884

Where England?

70

III,2,888

Where Spain?

71

III,2,890

Where America, the Indies?

72

III,2,895

Where stood Belgia, the Netherlands?

73

III,2,906

Go hie thee presently, post to the road:
An if the wind blow any way from shore,...

74

III,2,916

There's none but witches do inhabit here;
And therefore 'tis high time that I were hence....

75

III,2,927

Ay, that's my name.

76

III,2,931

What is your will that I shall do with this?

77

III,2,933

Made it for me, sir! I bespoke it not.

78

III,2,938

I pray you, sir, receive the money now,
For fear you ne'er see chain nor money more.

79

III,2,942

What I should think of this, I cannot tell:
But this I think, there's no man is so vain...

80

IV,3,1151

There's not a man I meet but doth salute me
As if I were their well-acquainted friend;...

81

IV,3,1165

What gold is this? what Adam dost thou mean?

82

IV,3,1171

I understand thee not.

83

IV,3,1179

What, thou meanest an officer?

84

IV,3,1184

Well, sir, there rest in your foolery. Is there any

85

IV,3,1190

The fellow is distract, and so am I;
And here we wander in illusions:...

86

IV,3,1197

Satan, avoid! I charge thee, tempt me not.

87

IV,3,1199

It is the devil.

88

IV,3,1211

Why, Dromio?

89

IV,3,1214

Avoid then, fiend! what tell'st thou me of supping?
Thou art, as you are all, a sorceress:...

90

IV,3,1228

Avaunt, thou witch! Come, Dromio, let us go.

91

IV,4,1410

I see these witches are afraid of swords.

92

IV,4,1412

Come to the Centaur; fetch our stuff from thence:
I long that we were safe and sound aboard.

93

IV,4,1420

I will not stay to-night for all the town;
Therefore away, to get our stuff aboard.

94

V,1,1447

I think I had; I never did deny it.

95

V,1,1449

Who heard me to deny it or forswear it?

96

V,1,1453

Thou art a villain to impeach me thus:
I'll prove mine honour and mine honesty...

97

V,1,1779

AEgeon art thou not? or else his ghost?

98

V,1,1805

No, sir, not I; I came from Syracuse.

99

V,1,1812

I, gentle mistress.

100

V,1,1815

And so do I; yet did she call me so:
And this fair gentlewoman, her sister here,...

101

V,1,1823

I think it be, sir; I deny it not.

102

V,1,1829

This purse of ducats I received from you,
And Dromio, my man, did bring them me....

103

V,1,1858

He speaks to me. I am your master, Dromio:
Come, go with us; we'll look to that anon:...
