Storyboard Text

  • MESSENGER: Much deserved on his part and equally remembered by Don Pedro. He hath borne himself beyond the promise of his age, doing in the figure of a lamb the feats of a lion. He hath indeed better bettered expectation than you must expect of me to tell you how.
  • LEONATO: A victory is twice itself when the achiever brings home full numbers. I find here that Don Pedro hath bestowed much honour on young Forentine called Claudio. 
  • BENEDICK: I can see yet without spectacles, and I see no such matter. There's her cousin, an she were not possessed with a fury, exceeds her as much in beauty as the first May doth the last of December. But I hope you have no intent to turn husband, have you?
  • LEONATO: Never came trouble to my house in the likeness of your Grace. For trouble being gone, comfort should remain; but when you depart from me sorrow abides, and hapiness takes his leave.
  • DON PEDRO: I shall see thee, ere I die, look pale with love
  • DON PEDRO: Good Seignor Leonato, are you come to meet your trouble? The fashion of this world is to avoid cost, and you encounter it.
  • BENECICK: God keep your ladyship still in that mind! So some gentlemen or other shall 'scape a predistinate scratched face.
  • BEATRICE: A dear hapiness to women: they would else have been troubled with a pernicious suitor. I thank God and my cold blood, I am of your humour for that. I had rather hear my dog bark than a man swear he loves me.
  • CLAUDIO: In mine eye she is the sweetest lady that I ever looked on.
  • BENEDICK: That a women concieved me, I thank her: that she brought me up, I likewise give her my most humble thanks. But that I will have a recheat winded in my forehead, or hang my bulge in an invisible baldrick, all women shall pardon me. Because I will not do them the wrong to mistrust any, I will do myself the right to trust none: and the fine is, for which I may go the finer, I will live a bachelor.
  • DON PEDRO:  I know we shall have revelling tonight: I will assume some disguise, and tell fair Hero I am Claudio, and in her bosom I'll unclasp my heart, and take her hearing prisoner with the force and strong encounter of my amorous tale. Then after, to her father will I break: and the conclusion is, she shall be thine. In practice let us put it presently.
