Comedy of Errors: Lines for Angelo

here is neither cheer, sir, nor welcome; we would fain have either.
if you went in pain, master, this 'knave' would go sore
I'll meet you at that place some hour hence
I'll knock elsewhere, to see if they'll disdain me
Master Antipholus
I'll stop mine ears against the mermaid's song
I know it well, sir, lo, here is the chain. I thought to have ta'en you at the Porpetine: the chain unfinish'd made me stay thus long
Ay, that's my name.
what please yourself, sir: I have made it for you
What is your will that I shall do with this?
Not once, nor twice, but twenty times you have. Go home and please your wife withal; and soon at supper-time I'll visit you and then recieve my money for the chain
Made it for me, sir! I bespoke it not.
You are a merry man, sir: fare you well
I pray you, sir, recieve the money now, for fear you ne'er see chain nor money more.
Even just the sum that I do owe to you is growing to me by Antipholus, and in the insant that I met with you he had of me the chain: at five o'clock I shall recieve the money for the same. Pleaseth you walk with me down to his house, I will discharge my bond and thank you too
Therefore make present satisfaction, or I'll attach you by this officer.
saving your your merry humor, here's the note how much your chain weighs to the utmost carat, the fineness of the gold and chargeful fashion. Which doth amount to three odd ducots more than I stand debted to this gentleman: I pray you, see him presetly discharged, for he is bound to sea and stays but for it
But neither chain nor goldsmith came to me. Belike you thought our love would last too long, if it were chain'd together, and therefore came not.
Then you will bring the chain to her yourself?
and with you take the chain and bid my wife disbourse the sum on the receipt thereof: perchance I will be there as soon as you.
Well, sir, I will. Have you the chain about you?
No; bear it with you, lest I come not time enough.
nay, come, I pray you, sir, give me the chain: both wind and tide stays for this gentleman, and I, to blame, have held him here too long.
An if I have not, sir, I hope you have; or else you may return without your money.
You hear how he importunes me; the chain!
The hour steals on; I pray you, sir, dispatch.
Come, come, you know I gave it to you even now. Either send the chain or send me by some token.
Why, give it to my wife and fetch your money.
The money that you owe me for the chain.
I answer you! What should I answer you?
You know I gave it to you half an hour since.
I owe you none till I recieve the chain.
You wrong me more, sir, in denying it: consider how it stands upon my credit.
You gave me none; you wrong me much to say so.
This touches me in reputation. Either consent to pay this sum for me or I attach you by this officer.
I do; and charge you in the duke's name to obey me.
Here is thy fee; arrest him, officer, I would not spare my brother in this case, if he should scorn me so apparently.
Consent to pay thee that I never had! Arrest me, foolish fellow, if thou darest.
Sir, sir, I will have law in Ephesus, to your notorious shame; I doubt it not.
But, sirrah, you shall buy this sport as dear as all the metal in your shop will answer.
I am sorry, sir, that I have hindered you; but, I protest, he had the chain of me, though most dishonestly he doth deny it.
I will not stay tonight for all the town; therefore away, to get our stuff aboard.
Of very reverend reputation, sir, of credit infinite, highly beloved, second to none that lives here in the city: his word might bear my wealth at any time.
How is the man esteemed here in the city?
I knew he was not in his perfect wits.
To fetch my poor distracted husband hence. Let us come in, that we may bind him fast and bear him home for his recovery.
upon what cause?
the place of death and sorry execution, behind the ditches of the abbey here
O perjured woman! They are both forsworn: in this the madman justly chargeth them.
But she tells to your highness simple truth!
My lord, in truth, thus far I witness with him, that he dined not at home, but was locked out.
Ran hither to your grace; whom I beseech to give me ample satisfaction for these deep shames and great indignities.
He had, my lord: and when he ran in here, these people saw the chain about his neck.
But had he such a chain of thee or no?
That is the chain, sir, which you had of me.
What I told you then, I hope I shall have leisure to make good; If this be not a dream I see and hear.
I think I did, sir; I deny it not.
And you, sir, for this chain arrested me.
