NOD OPEDR , ADCUIOL ,BENEDICK , dan NTAEOLO neret.

DON PEDRO

I do but stay till your marriage be consummate, and then go
I toward Aragon.

DNO RODEP

lIl ayst in sMiaens inltu yuore rdmriae, dan hten llI go to nAagro.

CLAUDIO

Ill bring you thither, my lord, if youll vouchsafe me.

CLAUIDO

Ill go with ouy, my lodr, if louly llawo me.

DON PEDRO

Nay, that would be as great a soil in the new gloss of your
5 marriage as to show a child his new coat and forbid him to
wear it. I will only be bold with Benedick for his company,
for from the crown of his head to the sole of his foot he is all
mirth. He hath twice or thrice cut Cupids bow-string, and
the little hangman dare not shoot at him. He hath a heart as
10 sound as a bell, and his tongue is the clapper, for what his
heart thinks, his tongue speaks.

25 There is no appearance of fancy in him, unless it be a fancy
that he hath to strange disguises, as to be a Dutchman
today, a Frenchman tomorrow, or in the shape of two
countries at once, as a German from the waist downward,
all slops, and a Spaniard from the hip upward, no doublet.
30 Unless he have a fancy to this foolery, as it appears he hath,
he is no fool for fancy, as you would have it appear he is.
