Yes, I wish you happiness. and when the time comes, I shall be married too!
I have found one. You saw the lady, and I saw the maid. I got her on the condition that you choose the right casket.
..... don't you need wife for that.
Oh congratulations my lady!
Antonio sends his regards, as well as this letter.
Mentally, it is hard to tell. The letter explains it all.
How is he?
Salerio enters with Lorenzo and Jessica
I wonder what it is that is making him look so upset. Bassanio, I will soon be your other half, so tell me what is going on.
Oh Portia, this is one of the hardest things that I have ever had to read. I told you of my wealth when I declared my love for you, but it is a lie. I have nothing. I owe money to one of my dearest friends, and him to his enemy. Not one successful ship, they all are crashed or ruined.
How much does he owe?
Is that all? Well we can double that. Go to him. You will not stay with me while your friend is in trouble. Nerissa and I will be fine.
Well if I have your consent to go, then I will go! But I will try to hurry back!
Guard him well!
I'll have my money without hearing any protest from you! I fell into your little Christian trap, but I won't have any more of it!
Please Sir! Listen to what I have to say!
Have you ever heard of such a terrible man?
There is no point. I understand his reasoning. The laws cannot be changed. It would hurt our country, for we always follow the laws.
