ACT V - SCENE VII. Another part of the plains.
Enter ACHILLES, with Myrmidons

ACHILLES
1    Come here about me, you my Myrmidons;
2    Mark what I say. Attend me where I wheel:
3    Strike not a stroke, but keep yourselves in breath:
4    And when I have the bloody Hector found,
5    Empale him with your weapons round about;
6    In fellest manner execute your aims.
7    Follow me, sirs, and my proceedings eye:
8    It is decreed Hector the great must die.
Exeunt

THERSITES
9    The cuckold and the cuckold-maker are at it. Now,
10   bull! now, dog! 'Loo, Paris, 'loo! now my double-
11   henned sparrow! 'loo, Paris, 'loo! The bull has the
12   game: ware horns, ho!
Exeunt PARIS and MENELAUS

Enter MARGARELON

MARGARELON
13   Turn, slave, and fight.
THERSITES
14   What art thou?
MARGARELON
15   A bastard son of Priam's.
THERSITES
16   I am a bastard too; I love bastards: I am a bastard
17   begot, bastard instructed, bastard in mind, bastard
18   in valour, in every thing illegitimate. One bear will
19   not bite another, and wherefore should one bastard?
20   Take heed, the quarrel's most ominous to us: if the
21   son of a whore fight for a whore, he tempts judgment:
22   farewell, bastard.
Exit

MARGARELON
23   The devil take thee, coward!
Exit
