Storyboard Text

  • Act 5, Scene 2 Lines 1-10
  • Pray thee, sweet Mistress Margaret, deserve well at my hands by helping me to the speech of Beatrice.
  • In so high a style, Margaret, that no man living will come over it, for in most comely truth thou deservest it.
  • Thy wit is as quick as the greyhound's mouth; it catches.
  • To have no man come over me! Why, shall I always keep below stairs?
  • Will you then write me a sonnet in praise of my beauty?
  • Act 5, Scene 2 Lines 11-17
  • A most manly wit, Margaret, it will not hurt a woman. And so I pray, thee call Beatrice. I give thee the bucklers.
  • And therefore will come.
  • If you use them, Margaret, you must put in the pikes with a vice, and they are dangerous weapons for maids.
  • Well, I will call Beatrice to you, who I think hath legs.
  • Give us the swords; we have bucklers of our own.
  • Act 5, Scene 2 Lines 18-32
  • The god, of love, that sits above, and knows me, and knows me,how pitiful I deserve-- I mean in singing. But in loving, Leander the good swimmer, Troilus the first employer of panders, and a whole bookful of there quondam carpetmongers, whose names yet run smoothly in the even road of a blank verse, why, they were never so truly turned over and over as my poor self in love. Marry, I cannot show it in rhyme. I have tried. I can find no rhyme for "lady" but "baby"--an innocent rhyme; for "scorn", "horn"-- a hard rhyme; for "school", "fool"--a babbling rhyme; very ominous endings. No, I was not born under a rhyming planet, not can I woo in festival terms.
  • Act 5, Scene 2 Line 33-39
  • Oh, but stay til then.
  • Sweet Beatrice, wouldst thou come when I called thee?
  • "Then" is spoken. Fare you well now. And yet, ere I go, let me go with what I came, which is, with knowing what hath passed between you and Claudio.
  • And yours as blunt as the fencer's foils, which hit but hurt not.
  • Yea, Signor, and depart when you bid me.
  • Act 5, Scene 2 Lines 40-48
  • Thou hast frightened the word out of his right sense, so forcible is thy wit. But I must tell thee plainly, Claudio undergoes my challenge, and either I must shortly hear from him, or I will subscribe him a coward. And I pray thee now tell me, for which of my bad parts dist thou first fall in love with me?
  • Foul words is but foul wind, and foul wind is but foul breath, and foul breath is noisome. therefore I will depart unkissed.
  • Act 5, Scene 2 Line 49-58
  • Suffer love! A good epithet! I do suffer love indeed, for I love thee against my will.
  • In spite of your heart, I think. Alas, poor heart, if you spite it for my sake, I will spite it for yours, for I will never love that which my friend hates.
  • For all of them together, which maintained so politic a state of evil that they will not admit any good part to intermingle with them. But for which of my good parts did you first suffer love for me?
  • Only foul words, and thereupon I will kiss thee.
  • Thou and I are too wise to woo peacefully.
