DUKE

    Let it be so.
Good night to every one.—(to BRABANTIO)
And, noble signior,
285If virtue no delighted beauty lack,
Your son-in-law is far more fair than black.

DUKE

All right, then. Good night, everyone.—(to BRABANTIO) Sir, if goodness is beautiful, your son-in-law is beautiful, not black.

FIRST SENATOR

Adieu, brave Moor. Use Desdemona well.

FIRST SENATOR

Goodbye, black Moor. Treat Desdemona well.

BRABANTIO

Look to her, Moor, if thou hast eyes to see.
She has deceived her father, and may thee.

BRABANTIO

Keep an eye on her, Moor. She lied to me, and she may lie to you.

OTHELLO

290My life upon her faith!—Honest Iago,
My Desdemona must I leave to thee.
I prithee, let thy wife attend on her,
And bring them after in the best advantage.
Come, Desdemona, I have but an hour
295Of love, of worldly matter and direction,
To spend with thee. We must obey the time.

OTHELLO

I’d bet my life she’d never lie to me. Iago, I’m leaving my dear Desdemona with you. Have your wife attend to her, and bring them along as soon as you can. Come on, Desdemona, I’ve only got an hour of love to spend with you, to tell you what you need to do. We’re on a tight schedule.
Exeunt OTHELLO and DESDEMONA

What will I do, think’st thou?

What do you think I should do?

300Why, go to bed, and sleep.

Go to bed, and sleep.

I will incontinently drown myself.

I’m going to go drown myself.
