ISABELLA

The image of it gives me content already; and I
trust it will grow to a most prosperous perfection.

ISABELLA

I like the idea already, and I hope it’ll be successful.

DUKE VINCENTIO

It lies much in your holding up. Haste you speedily
275to Angelo: if for this night he entreat you to his
bed, give him promise of satisfaction. I will
presently to Saint Luke’s: there, at the moated
grange, resides this dejected Mariana. At that
place call upon me; and dispatch with Angelo, that
280it may be quickly.

DUKE VINCENTIO

A lot depends on your ability to pull it off. Hurry over to Angelo. If he begs you to sleep with him tonight, promise to satisfy him. I’ll go to Saint Luke’s; poor Mariana is living there, in a country house. Arrange things with Angelo and come see me there, the sooner the better.

ISABELLA

I thank you for this comfort. Fare you well, good father.

ISABELLA

Thank you for your help. Goodbye, good father.
Exeunt severally
They exit, in separate directions.
