For such disguise as haply shall become the form of my intent. I'll serve this duke; thou shalt present me as an eunuch. (1. 2. L . 56 - 58)
Be you his eunuch, and your mute I'll be; When my tongue blabs, then let mine eyes not see. (1 . 2 . L . 64 - 65)
Cesario, Thou know'st no less but all; I have unclasped to thee the book even of my secret soul. Therefore, good youth, address thy gait unto her; Be not denied access, stand at her doors, And tell them, there thy fixed foot shall grow till thou have audience. (1.4.L.11-17)
Sure, my noble lord, If she be so abandoned to her sorrow As it is spoke, she never will admit me. (1.4.L.18-20)
The more fool, madonna to mourn for your brother's soul being in heaven. Take away the fool, gentleman. ( 1 . 5 . L . 62 - 63)
I know his soul is in heaven, fool (1 . 5 . L . 61)
Upon reaching Illyria, Viola talks to The Captain about her plan as dressing up to serve the Duke as his eunuch. This particular scene demonstrates the swift and wise mind of Viola along with her determination to serve the Duke.
By your patience, no. My stars shine darkly over me; the malignancy of my fate might, perhaps, distemper yours; therefore I shall crave of you your leave that I may bear my evils alone. It were a bad recompense for your love, to lay any of them on you. (2.1.L.3-7)
Won't you stay no longer, nor will you not that I go with you? (2.1.L.1-2)
The Duke asked Cesario (Viola disguised as a man) for proceeding to Olvia and confess love to her for him, whilst knowing that Olivia is going through her mourning period of her brother. This shows the personality of the duke to be in a way "Rude" as he is interrupting the mourning period of Olvia, however, this can be seen as a benefit because the Duke can help Olivia get over the mourning of her brother.
My masters, are you mad, or what are you? Have you no wit, manners, nor honesty, but to gabble like tinkers at this time of night? Do ye make an alehouse of my lady's house, that ye squeak out your cozier's catches without any mitigation or remorse of voice? Is there no respect of place persons, nor time in you? (2.3.L.78-83)
We did keep time, sir , in our catches. Sneck up! (2.3.L.84)
Feste demonstrates his wittiness, with cracking jokes towards Olvia during the mourning period of her brother's death. He does this as an attempt to get rid of the lingering melancholic environment of the room.
There is no woman’s sides, can bide the beating of so strong a passion as love doth give my heart; no womans heart so big, to hold so much; they lack retention. Alas their love may be called appetite, No motion of the liver, but the palate, that suffer surfiet, cloyment, and revolt;but mine is all as hungry as the sea, and can digest as much. Make no compare between love a woman can bear me and that I owe Olivia. (2.4.99-109)
Ay, but I know- (2.4.L.110)
