Act 5, scene 4
Doll Tearsheet is arrested.⟨Enter Hostess Quickly, Doll Tearsheet, and Beadles.⟩
HOSTESS 3256 No, thou arrant knave. I would to God that I
3257 might die, that I might have thee hanged. Thou hast
3258 drawn my shoulder out of joint.
BEADLE 3259 The Constables have delivered her over to me,
3260 5 and she shall have whipping cheer ⟨enough,⟩ I
3261 warrant her. There hath been a man or two ⟨lately⟩
3262 killed about her.
DOLL 3263 Nut-hook, nut-hook, you lie! Come on, I’ll tell
3264 thee what, thou damned tripe-visaged rascal: an the
3265 10 child I ⟨now⟩ go with do miscarry, thou wert better
3266 thou hadst struck thy mother, thou paper-faced
HOSTESS 3268 O the Lord, that Sir John were come! I would
3269 make this a bloody day to somebody. But I pray God
3270 15 the fruit of her womb ⟨might⟩ miscarry.
BEADLE 3271 If it do, you shall have a dozen of cushions
3272 again; you have but eleven now. Come, I charge you
3273 both go with me, for the man is dead that you and
3274 Pistol beat amongst you.
DOLL 3275 20I’ll tell you what, you thin man in a censer, I will
3276 have you as soundly swinged for this, you bluebottle
3277 rogue, you filthy famished correctioner. If you be
3278 not swinged, I’ll forswear half-kirtles.
BEADLE 3279 Come, come, you she-knight-errant, come.
HOSTESS 3280 25O God, that right should thus overcome
3281 might! Well, of sufferance comes ease.
DOLL 3282 Come, you rogue, come, bring me to a justice.
HOSTESS 3283 Ay, come, you starved bloodhound.
DOLL 3284 Goodman Death, Goodman Bones!
HOSTESS 3285 30Thou atomy, thou!
DOLL 3286 Come, you thin thing, come, you rascal.
BEADLE 3287 Very well.
