Enter Beadle and three or four Officers with Hostess Quickly and Doll Tearsheet.
No, thou arrant knave, I would to God that I might die, that I might have thee hang’d. Thou hast drawn my shoulder out of joint.
The constables have deliver’d her over to me, and she shall have whipping cheer, I warrant her. There hath been a man or two kill’d about her.
Nuthook, nuthook, you lie. Come on! I’ll tell thee what, thou damn’d tripe-visag’d rascal, and the child I go with do miscarry, thou wert better thou hadst strook thy mother, thou paper-fac’d villain!
O the Lord, that Sir John were come! I would make this a bloody day to somebody. But I pray God the fruit of her womb miscarry.
If it do, you shall have a dozen of cushions again; you have but eleven now. Come, I charge you both go with me, for the man is dead that you and Pistol beat amongst you.
I’ll tell you what, you thin man in a censer, I will have you as soundly swing’d for this—you blue-bottle rogue, you filthy famish’d correctioner, if you be not swing’d, I’ll forswear half-kirtles.
Come, come, you she knight-arrant, come.
O God, that right should thus overcome might! Well, of sufferance comes ease.
Come, you rogue, come bring me to a justice.
Ay, come, you starv’d bloodhound.
Goodman Death, goodman Bones!
Thou atomy, thou!
Come, you thin thing, come, you rascal.
