BIANCA
He supped at my house, but I therefore shake not.
BIANCA
He ate at my house, but that doesn’t make me nervous.
IAGO
Oh, did he so? I charge you, go with me.
IAGO
Oh, did he? I order you to come with me.
EMILIA
Oh, fie upon thee, strumpet!
EMILIA
Go to hell, you whore!
BIANCA
125I am no strumpet, but of life as honest
As you that thus abuse me.
BIANCA
I’m no whore. I’m as moral as you are.
EMILIA
    As I! Fie upon thee!
EMILIA
As moral as me! Damn you!
IAGO
Kind gentlemen, let’s go see poor Cassio dressed.—
Come, mistress, you must tell ’s another tale.
Emilia, run you to the citadel
130And tell my lord and lady what hath happed.—
Will you go on afore?
(aside)
    This is the night
That either makes me or fordoes me quite.
IAGO
Gentlemen, let’s go make sure Cassio’s wounds are properly dressed.—Come on, ma'am, you can tell us another story. Emilia, go to the castle and tell Othello and Desdemona what happened.—Will you please go now? (to himself) This is the night that’ll either make me or break me.
Exeunt
They all exit.
