TRINCULO

Do, do. We steal by line and level, an ’t like your grace.

TRINCULO

Go ahead, take it. We’re stealing things the right way here.

STEPHANO

I thank thee for that jest. Here’s a garment for ’t. Wit shall not go unrewarded while I am king of this country. “Steal by line and level” is an excellent pass of pate. There’s another garment for ’t.

STEPHANO

Thank you for that joke. Here, I’ll give you some clothes to show my gratitude. As king of this country I like to reward wit when I hear it. “Stealing things the right way” is a great line. Here’s another jacket to say thanks.

TRINCULO

Monster, come, put some lime upon your fingers, and away with the rest.

TRINCULO

Come here, monster, put some glue on your fingers, and carry away the rest of these clothes for us.

CALIBAN

235I will have none on ’t. We shall lose our time,
And all be turned to barnacles or to apes
With foreheads villainous low.

CALIBAN

I won’t have any of this. We’re wasting our time. We’ll miss our chance and be turned into geese or apes with low foreheads.

STEPHANO

Monster, lay to your fingers. Help to bear this away where my hogshead of wine is, or I’ll turn you out of my kingdom. Go to, carry this.

STEPHANO

Monster, use your fingers. Help us carry these clothes to where my barrel of wine is hidden, or I’ll kick you out of my kingdom. Go on, take them.

TRINCULO

And this.

TRINCULO

Take these too.

STEPHANO

Ay, and this.

STEPHANO

Yes, and these.
A noise of hunters heard Enter divers spirits, in shape of dogs and hounds, hunting them about, PROSPERO and ARIEL setting them on
A noise of hunters is heard. Various spirits enter disguised as dogs and hounds, chasing STEPHANO, TRINCULO, and CALIBAN around. PROSPERO and ARIEL follow them, urging the dogs on.

PROSPERO

Hey, Mountain, hey!

PROSPERO

Hey, Mountain, hey!

ARIEL

    Silver. There it goes, Silver!

ARIEL

Silver. There they go, Silver!
