How now, my Lord of Worcester? Tis not well
10 That you and I should meet upon such terms
As now we meet. You have deceived our trust
And made us doff our easy robes of peace
To crush our old limbs in ungentle steel.
This is not well, my lord; this is not well.
15 What say you to it? Will you again unknit
This curlish knot of all-abhorrd war
And move in that obedient orb again
Where you did give a fair and natural light,
And be no more an exhaled meteor,
20 A prodigy of fear and a portent
Of broachd mischief to the unborn times?

WORCESTER

(to the KING) It pleased your Majesty to turn your looks
Of favour from myself and all our house;
And yet I must remember you, my lord,
We were the first and dearest of your friends.
For you my staff of office did I break
35 In Richards time, and posted day and night
To meet you on the way, and kiss your hand
When yet you were in place and in account
Nothing so strong and fortunate as I.
It was myself, my brother, and his son
40 That brought you home and boldly did outdare
The dangers of the time. You swore to us,
And you did swear that oath at Doncaster,
That you did nothing purpose gainst the state,
Nor claim no further than your new-falln right,
45 The seat of Gaunt, dukedom of Lancaster.
To this we swore our aid. But in short space
It rained down fortune showring on your head,
And such a flood of greatness fell on you
What with our help, what with the absent King,
50 What with the injuries of a wanton time,
The seeming sufferances that you had borne,

And the contrarious winds that held the King
So long in his unlucky Irish wars
That all in England did repute him dead
55 And from this swarm of fair advantages
You took occasion to be quickly wooed
To gripe the general sway into your hand,
Forget your oath to us at Doncaster;
And being fed by us, you used us so
60 As that ungentle gull, the cuckoos bird,
Useth the sparrowdid oppress our nest,
Grew by our feeding to so great a bulk
That even our love durst not come near your sight
For fear of swallowing; but with nimble wing
65 We were enforced for safety sake to fly
Out of sight and raise this present head,
Whereby we stand opposd by such means
As you yourself have forged against yourself
By unkind usage, dangerous countenance,
70 And violation of all faith and troth
Sworn to us in your younger enterprise.

These things indeed you have articulate,
Proclaimed at market crosses, read in churches,
To face the garment of rebellion
75 With some fine color that may please the eye
Of fickle changelings and poor discontents,
Which gape and rub the elbow at the news
Of hurlyburly innovation.
And never yet did insurrection want
80 Such water colors to impaint his cause,
Nor moody beggars starving for a time
Of pellmell havoc and confusion.

And, will they take the offer of our grace,
Both he and they and you, yea, every man
Shall be my friend again, and Ill be his.
So tell your cousin, and bring me word

Hence, therefore, every leader to his charge,
For on their answer will we set on them,
120 And God befriend us as our cause is just.

FALSTAFF

Hal, if thou see me down in the battle and bestride me, so;
tis a point of friendship.

AAFLSFFT

Hla, if you see me lafl in labtet, antds ervo me, ielk isht. It ouwdl be an cta of pifsnhdier.

PRINCE HENRY

Nothing but a colossus can do thee that friendship.
Say thy prayers, and farewell.

FALSTAFF

Tis not due yet. I would be loath to pay Him before His day. What need I be so forward with Him that calls not on me? Well, tis no matter. Honour pricks me on. Yea, but how if honor prick me off when I come on? How then? Can honor set to a leg? no. Or an arm? no. Or take away the grief of a wound? No. Honor hath no skill in surgery, then? No. What is honor? A word. What is in that word honor? What is that honor? Air. A trim reckoning. Who hath it? He that died o Wednesday. Doth he feel it? No. Doth he hear it? No. Tis insensible, then? Yea, to the dead. But will it not live with the living? No. Why? Detraction will not suffer it. Therefore, Ill none of it. Honor is a mere scutcheon. And so ends my catechism.
