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.
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
13 Turn, slave, and fight.
14 What art thou?
15 A bastard son of Priam's.
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.
