  • My dear Antonio, I need to borough more money in order to go see the fair lady Portia.
  • Bassanio, my money is at sea with my ships, but there might be another way for us to get the money.
  • You want to borough 3,000 ducats. Okay, but if you don't pay me back in 3 months I get to take a pound of your flesh.
  • Shylock, I need to borough 3,000 ducats for my friend Bassanio.
  • All you need is 3,000 ducats. Take 60,000 ducats and go save your friend.
  • Portia, my dear friend Antonio's ships have sunk and he is in trouble. I must go save him, but I will need some money. I will 3,000 ducats.
  • I will have my bond!
  • Yes you will, but the bond states that you can only have exactly one pound of flesh, no more or no less. It also doesn't say you can take his blood.
  • Shylock, you must become a Christian and when you die, your leftover wealth will go to Jessica and Lorenzo. That is your punishment.
  • Can I take the money instead?
  • No. You had your chance to show mercy and you didn't, so now you will be punished for not following through on the bond.
