"Othello: Go ahead, swear to that, so you'll be dammed to hell for lying. Otherwise the devils will mistake you for an angel and be too scared to grab you . Go ahead, make sure you damn yourself by swearing you've been faithful to me. Desdemona: Heaven knows I am Othello: Heaven knows your as unfaithful as hell Desdemona: Unfaithful, my lord?With whom?How am I unfaithful? Othello: Leave me alone, Desdemona, go away ... Desdemona: Have I done something to offend you without knowing it? Othello: Was someone as beautiful as you meant to be a whore?What have you done? What have you done?Oh, you streetwalker! If i said out loud what you've done, you'd burn up with shame.What have you done?Heaven has to hold its nose when it see's you!The pure moon in the sky has to shut its eyes when you go by!Even the wind that blows over everything on earth is ashamed to visit you.You brazen whore!"

"Othello: This Iago is extremely honest and good, and he knows a lot about human behavior. If it turns out that she really is running around on me, I’ll send her away, even though it’ll break my heart. Maybe because I’m black, and I don’t have nice manners like courtiers do, or because I’m getting old—but that’s not much—She’s gone, and I’ve been cheated on. I have no choice but to hate her. Oh what a curse marriage is! We think our beautiful wives belong to us, but their desires are free! I’d rather be a toad in a moldy basement than to have only a part of someone I love, sharing the rest of her with others. This is the plague of important men—our wives betray us more than those of poor men. It’s our destiny, like death. We are destined to be betrayed when we are born. Oh, here she comes."

"Iago: She say's your going to marry her. Are you? Cassio: Ha, Ha, Ha! Othello:Are you laughing because you've won? Do you think you've won? Cassio: Me, marry her?That whore?Please give me a little credit!I'm not that stupid. Ha,ha,ha! Othello:So,so,so,so!The winner always got the last laugh, hasn't he? Iago:I swear, there's a rumor going around that you'll marry her. Cassio: You're kidding! Iago: If it's not true, you can call me a villain. Othello: Have you given me bastard children to raise? All right, then. Cassio: The little monkey must have started that rumor herself. She thinks I’ll marry her because she loves me. She’s just flattering herself. I never promised her anything."
