Why did you come here from the most remote plain of India, unless, of course, the swaggering Amazon, your booted mistress and your warrior lover, is going to be married to Theseus and you have come to wish the couple joy and prosperity?
For shame, Titania, how can you slander my reputation with talk about Hippolyta, when you know I know of your love for Theseus? Didn't you lead him through the glimmering night from Perigenia, whom he raped? And then you made him break his promise to the lovely Aegle and Ariadne and Antiopa?
Those are lies of jealousy. Never, since the beginning of midsummer, have we met on hill, in dale, forest, or meadow, by pebble-bottomed fountain or by rush-lined brook, or along the seashore.
These very children of evil come from our quarrel and from our argument. we are their parents and origin
All I ask for is a little changeling boy to be my page.
Set your heart at rest. You could not buy him from me if you offered your entire fairyland. She, being just a mortal, died delivering the boy. For her sake, I raise her boy, and for her sake, I will not part with him.
How long do you intend to stay in this woods?
Perhaps until after Theseus' wedding day. If you will patiently join in our dance and see our moonlight festivities, come with us. If not, avoid me,
Give me that boy, and I'll go with you.
Not for your fairy kingdom. Fairies, let's be off! We will quarrel outright if I stay any longer.
well, go on your way. But, you will not leave this woods until I punish you for this insult.
