Mamillius. You'll kiss me hard and speak to me as if
I were a baby still. I love you better.

Second Lady. And why so, my lord?



Mamillius. Not for because
Your brows are blacker; yet black brows, they say,
Become some women best, so that there be not
Too much hair there, but in a semicircle
Or a half-moon made with a pen.

Second Lady. Who taught you this?



First Lady. Hark ye;
The queen your mother rounds apace: we shall
Present our services to a fine new prince
One of these days; and then you'ld wanton with us,
If we would have you.

Second Lady. She is spread of late
Into a goodly bulk: good time encounter her!
