(to TOUCHSTONE )
And you to wrangling, for thy loving voyage
190Is but for two months victualled.—So to your pleasures.
I am for other than for dancing measures.
(to TOUCHSTONE) And you I expect to be up fighting soon. The honeymoon will last two months, tops.— And with that, you may all return to your dancing. I’m bound for another fate.

DUKE SENIOR

Stay, Jaques, stay.

DUKE SENIOR

Stay, Jaques, stay here for a bit.

JAQUES

To see no pastime I. What you would have
I’ll stay to know at your abandoned cave.

JAQUES

No, this fun is not for me. I’ll wait for you in your cave, where you can tell me what you need from me.
Exit
He exits.

DUKE SENIOR

195Proceed, proceed. We’ll so begin these rites
As we do trust they’ll end, in true delights.

DUKE SENIOR

Let’s proceed. We’ll begin the ceremony the way we hope it will end—with delight.
Dance
Everyone dances.
Exeunt all but ROSALIND
Everyone exits except ROSALIND.
