And therefore, frolick; we will hence forthwith.
Kath. I dare assure you, Sir, 'tis almost two;
Pet. It shall be seven, ere I go to horse: Look, what I speak, or do, or think to do, You are still crossing it. Sirs, let's alone: I will not go to-day; and ere I do, It shall be what o'clock I say it is. Hor. Why, so! this gallant will command the sun,
SCENE I V.
Padua. Before Baptista's House.
Enter TRANIO, and the Pedant dressed like
Tra. 'Tis well;
ini ta' Enter BIONDELLO. Ped. I warrant you: But, Sir, here comes your boy; 'T'were goody he were school'd.
Tra. Fcar you not him. Sirrah , Biondello, Now do your duty throughly, I advise you: Imagine 'twere the right Vincentio.
Bion. Tut! feay not me. Tra. But last thou done thy errand to Baptista ? Bion. I told him, that your father was at Venice; And that you look'd for him this day in Padua.
Tra. Thou’rt a tall fellow; hold thee that to drink. Here comes Baptista ; - set your countenance, Sir.
Enter BAPTISTA and LUCENTIO.
Ped. Soft, son!
Вар. Sir, pardon me in what I have to say: Your plainness, and your shortness, please me well. Right true it is, your son Lucentio here Doth love my daughter, and she loveth him, Or both dissemble deeply their affections :
And, therefore, if you say no more than this,
Bap. Not in my house, Lucentio; for, you know,
Tra. Then at my lodging, an it like you, Sir:
Bap. It likes me well: - Cambio, hie you home,
Tra. Dally not with the gods, but get thee gone. Signior Baptista, shall I lead the way? Welcome! one mess is like to be your cheer: Come, Sir; we'll better it in Pisa. Bap. I follow yon.
(Exeunt-TRANIO, Pedant, and BAPTISTA. Bion. Cambio. Luc. What say'st thou, Biondello ? Bion. You saw my master wink and laugh upon yon? Luc. Biondello, what of that?
Bion. 'Faith nothing; but he has left me here behind, to expound the meaning or moral of his signs and tokens.
Luc. I pray thee, moralize them.
Bion. Then thus. Baptista is safe, talking with the deceiving father of a deceitful son.
Luc. And what of him?
Bion. His daụghter is to be brought by you to the supper.
Luc. And then ?
Bion. The old priest at saint Luke's church is at your command at all hours.
Luc. And what of all this?
Bion. I cannot tell; except they are busied about a counterfeit assurance: Take you assurance of her, cum privilegio ad imprimendum solum: to the church; take the priest, clerk, and some sufficient honest witnesses: If this be not that you look for, I have no more to say, But, bid Bianca farewell for ever and a day. [Going.
Luc. Hear'st thou, Biondello?
Bion. I cannot tarry: I knew a wench married in an afternoon as she went to the garden for parsley to stuff a rabbit; and so may you, Sir; and so adieu, Sir. My master hath appointed me to go to, saint Luke's, to bid the priest be ready to come against you come with your appendix.
(Exit. Lùc. I may, and will, if she be so contented: She will be pleas'd, then wherefore should I doubt? Hap what hap may, I'll roundly go about her; It shall go hard, if Cambio go without her. [Exit.
Pet. Come on, o'God's name; once more toward our
father's. Good Lord, how bright and goodly shines the moon!
Kath. The moon! the sun; it is not moonlight now. Pet. I say, it is the moon that shines so bright. Kath. I know, it is the sun that shines so bright, ,
Pet. Now, by my mother's son, and that's myself, It shall be moon, or star, or what I list, Or ere I journey to your father's house : Go on, and fetch our horses back again. Evermore crost, and crost; nothing but crost!
Hor. Say as he says, or we shall iye ver go.
Kath. Forward, I pray, since we have come so far,
Pet. I say, it is the moon.
Kath. Then, God be bless'd, it is the blessed sun:-
Hor. Petruchio, go thy ways; the field is won. Pet. Well, forward, forward: thus the., bow!
should run, And not unluckily against the bias, Girls But soft? what company is coming here?
