What, for being a puritan? Thy exquisite reason, dear knight?
Act 2, Scene 3
I have no exquisite reason for ’t, but I have reason good enough.
The devil a puritan that he is, or anything constantly, but a time-pleaser; an affectioned ass that cons state without book and utters it by great swarths; the best persuaded of himself, so crammed, as he thinks, with excellencies, that it is his grounds of faith that all that look on him love him. And on that vice in him will my revenge find notable cause to work.
Act 2, Scene 3
What wilt thou do?
I will drop in his way some obscure epistles of love, wherein by the color of his beard, the shape of his leg, the manner of his gait, the expressure of his eye, forehead, and complexion,he shall find himself most feelingly personated.
I have’t in my nose too.
Act 3, Scene 1
I would not by my will have troubled,But, since you make your pleasure of your pains,I will no further chide you.
I could not stay behind you. My desire,More sharp than filèd steel, did spur me forth.And not all love to see you, though so muchAs might have drawn one to a longer voyage,But jealousy what might befall your travel,Being skilless in these parts, which to a stranger,Unguided and unfriended, often proveRough and unhospitable. My willing love,the rather by these arguments of fear,Set forth in your pursuit.
This is the scene in which Malvolio's downfall is plotted. Maria's words show that she is viscous towards and doesn't like Malvolio and is feisty.
This is a continuation of the scene from earlier. Again Maria is shown to clever and witty because she comes up with a really clever plan to make a fool out of Malvolio.
This is the scene in which Sebastien and Antonio was up on the shore of Illyria. This scene shows their true friendship as Antonio is ready to enter a place in which he can be arrested just to give Sebastien company.
