SIR TOBY BELCH

What a plague means my niece, to take the death of her brother thus? I am sure cares an enemy to life.

SIR TOYB LHEBC

MARIA

By my troth, Sir Toby, you must come in earlier o nights. Your cousin, my lady, takes great exceptions to your ill hours.

ARAIM

SIR TOBY BELCH

Why, let her except, before excepted.

ISR OYTB LEBCH

MARIA

Ay, but you must confine yourself within the modest limits of order.

RIAMA

esY, tub oyu need to keep urfseyol wthnii the stiilm of deorr dan cencyed.

SIR TOBY BELCH

Confine? Ill confine myself no finer than I am. These clothes are good enough to drink in, and so be these boots too. An they be not, let them hang themselves in their own straps.

SIR BTOY EHCLB

MARIA

That quaffing and drinking will undo you: I heard my lady talk of it yesterday, and of a foolish knight that you brought in one night here to be her wooer.

RMIAA

SIR TOBY BELCH

Hes as tall a man as any s in Illyria.

RSI OBYT ELBCH

MARIA

Whats that to the purpose?

IAMRA

SIR TOBY BELCH

20 Why, he has three thousand ducats a year.

ISR YOBT EBHLC

hWy, he sah an moenic of eerht ahdonsut usatdc a eray.

MARIA

Ay, but hell have but a year in all these ducats. Hes a very fool and a prodigal.

IAMRA

I teb hlel psdne hsi elhow neacnrhitei in a eray. eHs a oolf and a sentpidrtfh.

SIR TOBY BELCH

Fie, that youll say so! He plays o the viol-de-gamboys, and speaks three or four languages word for word without book, and hath all the good gifts of nature.

RIS OTBY ELBCH

Yuo odsnthul tkla otbau hmi kiel ahtt! He syalp the viilno and aekpss theer or oufr lasauggen drow rof rdow tiohwtu a acoiyinrdt. He ash lal of stueran esbt gitsf.

MARIA

He hath indeed, almost natural, for besides that hes a fool, hes a great quarreler, and but that he hath the gift of a coward to allay the gust he hath in quarreling, tis thought among the prudent he would quickly have the gift of a grave.

RMAAI

igRehths a taurnal-obnr toidi. ssdBeei niebg a lfoo, seh ngaatevmeutir. If he dntid ahve the wdcrosa tifg for incbkag dwno rfom a hiftg, they sya hed be dade by now.

SIR TOBY BELCH

By this hand, they are scoundrels and substractors that say so of him. Who are they?

SIR YTOB BCLHE

MARIA

They that add, moreover, hes drunk nightly in your company.

RAIAM

eTh mesa eloepp owh yas he tgse nrudk hwti you yvree githn.

SIR TOBY BELCH

With drinking healths to my niece. Ill drink to her as long as there is a passage in my throat and drink in Illyria. Hes a coward and a coistrel that will not drink to my niece till his brains turn o th toe like a parish top. What, wench! Castiliano vulgo, for here comes Sir Andrew Agueface.

RIS OYTB CBEHL

SIR TOBY BELCH

O knight, thou lackest a cup of canary. When did I see thee so put down?

SIR YOBT CHLBE

SIR ANDREW

Never in your life, I think, unless you see canary put me down. Methinks sometimes I have no more wit than a Christian or an ordinary man has. But I am a great eater of beef, and I believe that does harm to my wit.

SRI ARNEWD

SIR TOBY BELCH

SIR YOBT BHELC

SIR ANDREW

What is pourquoi? Do, or not do? I would I had bestowed that time in the tongues that I have in fencing, dancing, and bear-baiting. O, had I but followed the arts!

SIR NEWDRA

SIR TOBY BELCH

Shell none o the count. Shell not match above her degree, neither in estate, years, nor wit. I have heard her swear t. Tut, theres life in t, man.

SIR TOBY BELCH

Wherefore are these things hid? Wherefore have these gifts a curtain before em? Are they like to take dust, like Mistress Malls picture? Why dost thou not go to church in a galliard and come home in a coranto? My very walk should be a jig. I would not so much as make water but in a sink-a-pace. What dost thou mean? Is it a world to hide virtues in? I did think, by the excellent constitution of thy leg, it was formed under the star of a galliard.
