SOLANIO

50I think he only loves the world for him.
I pray thee, let us go and find him out
And quicken his embracèd heaviness
With some delight or other.

SOLANIO

I think he only loves life because of Bassanio. Let’s go find him and cheer him up.

SALARINO

     Do we so.

SALARINO

Yes, let’s do that.
Exeunt
They exit.
