ACT I - SCENE II. The same. A public place.
Enter CLOTEN and two Lords

First Lord
1    Sir, I would advise you to shift a shirt; the
2    violence of action hath made you reek as a
3    sacrifice: where air comes out, air comes in:
4    there's none abroad so wholesome as that you vent.
CLOTEN
5    If my shirt were bloody, then to shift it. Have I hurt him?
Second Lord
Aside
6     No, 'faith; not so much as his patience.
First Lord
7    Hurt him! his body's a passable carcass, if he be
8    not hurt: it is a thoroughfare for steel, if it be not hurt.
Second Lord
Aside
9     His steel was in debt; it went o' the
10   backside the town.
CLOTEN
11   The villain would not stand me.
Second Lord
Aside
12    No; but he fled forward still, toward your face.
First Lord
13   Stand you! You have land enough of your own: but
14   he added to your having; gave you some ground.
Second Lord
Aside
15    As many inches as you have oceans. Puppies!
CLOTEN
16   I would they had not come between us.
Second Lord
Aside
17    So would I, till you had measured how long
18   a fool you were upon the ground.
CLOTEN
19   And that she should love this fellow and refuse me!
Second Lord
Aside
20    If it be a sin to make a true election, she
21   is damned.
First Lord
22   Sir, as I told you always, her beauty and her brain
23   go not together: she's a good sign, but I have seen
24   small reflection of her wit.
Second Lord
Aside
25    She shines not upon fools, lest the
26   reflection should hurt her.
CLOTEN
27   Come, I'll to my chamber. Would there had been some
28   hurt done!
Second Lord
Aside
29    I wish not so; unless it had been the fall
30   of an ass, which is no great hurt.
CLOTEN
31   You'll go with us?
First Lord
32   I'll attend your lordship.
CLOTEN
33   Nay, come, let's go together.
Second Lord
34   Well, my lord.
Exeunt
