Act 3, Scene III
Scene: The Street before Merrythought's House.
Enter Mistress MERRYTHOUGHT.
- Look, George, here comes Mistress Merrythought
again! and I would have Ralph come and fight with
the giant; I tell you true, I long to see't.
- Good Mistress Merrythought, begone, I pray you, for
my sake; I pray you, forbear a little; you shall have
audience presently; I have a little business.
- Mistress Merrythought, if it please you to refrain your
passion a little, till Ralph have despatched the giant
out of the way, we shall think ourselves much bound
to vou. [Exit Mistress Merrythought.] I thank you,
good Mistress Merrythought.
- Boy, come hither. [Enter Boy.] Send away Ralph
and this whoreson giant quickly.
- In good faith, sir, we cannot; you'll utterly spoil our
play, and make it to be hissed; and it cost money; you
will not suffer us to go on with our plot.I pray,
gentlemen, rule him.
- Let him come now, and despatch this, and I'll trouble
you no more.
- Will you give me your hand of that?
- Give him thy hand, George, do; and I'll kiss him. I
warrant thee, the youth means plainly.
- I'll send him to you presently.
- [Kissing him.] I thank you, little youth.
Faith, the child hath a sweet breath, George; but I
think it be troubled with the worms; carduus benedictus
and mare's milk were the only thing in the world for't.
