GREEN

Alas, poor duke! the task he undertakes
Is numbering sands and drinking oceans dry:
Where one on his side fights, thousands will fly.
150Farewell at once, for once, for all, and ever.

GREEN

Oh, poor duke! The task he must begin is as hard as counting the sand in a desert or drinking all the water in the ocean. For every person who fights with him, there will be thousands who will not. Goodbye immediately and forever.

BUSHY

Well, we may meet again.

BUSHY

Well, we might meet again.

BAGOT

I fear me, never.

BAGOT

I fear that we won’t.
Exeunt
They exit.
