  • ''It's three rioters, I have to tell Who, long before the morning service bell, Were sitting in a tavern for a drink.'' (Chaucer 173)
  • Chaucer stated that "At once the three young rioters began to run, and reached the tree, and there they found A pile of golden florins on the ground'' (176)
  • "Well, sirs,” he said, “if it be your designTo find out Death, turn up this crooked wayTowards that grove, I left him there todayUnder a tree, and there you’ll find him waiting" (Chaucer 176)
  • “If one could only get the gold away, Back to my house, or else to yours, perhaps— For as you know, the gold is ours, chaps— We’d all be at the top of fortune, hey? But certainly it can’t be done by day" (Chaucers 176)
  • “Well,” said his friend, “you see that we are two, And two are twice as powerful as one. Now look; when he comes back, get up in fun To have a wrestle; then, as you attack, I’ll up and put my dagger through his back While you and he are struggling, as in game; Then draw your dagger too and do the same." (Chaucers 177)
  • "For later on there’ll be the corpse to bury.”And, as it happened, reaching for a sup,He took a bottle full of poison upAnd drank; and his companion, nothing loth,Drank from it also, and they perished both." (Chaucers 179)
