0 Before LEONATO’S house.
 
1 [Enter LEONATO, HERO, and BEATRICE, with a Messenger]
 
2 Leonato.
3       I learn in this letter that Don Peter of Arragon
4       comes this night to Messina.
5 Messenger.
6       He is very near by this: he was not three leagues off
7       when I left him.
8 Leonato.
9       How many gentlemen have you lost in this action?
10 Messenger.
11       But few of any sort, and none of name.
12 Leonato.
13       A victory is twice itself when the achiever brings
14       home full numbers. I find here that Don Peter hath
15       bestowed much honour on a young Florentine called Claudio.
16 Messenger.
17       Much deserved on his part and equally remembered by
18       Don Pedro: he hath borne himself beyond the
19       promise of his age, doing, in the figure of a lamb,
20       the feats of a lion: he hath indeed better
21       bettered expectation than you must expect of me to
22       tell you how.
23 Leonato.
24       He hath an uncle here in Messina will be very much
25       glad of it.
26 Messenger.
27       I have already delivered him letters, and there
28       appears much joy in him; even so much that joy could
29       not show itself modest enough without a badge of
30       bitterness.
31 Leonato.
32       Did he break out into tears?
33 Messenger.
34       In great measure.
35 Leonato.
36       A kind overflow of kindness: there are no faces
37       truer than those that are so washed. How much
38       better is it to weep at joy than to joy at weeping!
39 Beatrice.
40       I pray you, is Signior Mountanto returned from the
41       wars or no?
42 Messenger.
43       I know none of that name, lady: there was none such
44       in the army of any sort.
45 Leonato.
46       What is he that you ask for, niece?
47 Hero.
48       My cousin means Signior Benedick of Padua.
49 Messenger.
50       O, he's returned; and as pleasant as ever he was.
51 Beatrice.
52       He set up his bills here in Messina and challenged
53       Cupid at the flight; and my uncle's fool, reading
54       the challenge, subscribed for Cupid, and challenged
55       him at the bird-bolt. I pray you, how many hath he
56       killed and eaten in these wars? But how many hath
57       he killed? for indeed I promised to eat all of his killing.
58 Leonato.
59       Faith, niece, you tax Signior Benedick too much;
60       but he'll be meet with you, I doubt it not.
61 Messenger.
62       He hath done good service, lady, in these wars.
63 Beatrice.
64       You had musty victual, and he hath holp to eat it:
65       he is a very valiant trencherman; he hath an
66       excellent stomach.
67 Messenger.
68       And a good soldier too, lady.
69 Beatrice.
70       And a good soldier to a lady: but what is he to a lord?
71 Messenger.
72       A lord to a lord, a man to a man; stuffed with all
73       honourable virtues.
74 Beatrice.
75       It is so, indeed; he is no less than a stuffed man:
76       but for the stuffing,—well, we are all mortal.
77 Leonato.
78       You must not, sir, mistake my niece. There is a
79       kind of merry war betwixt Signior Benedick and her:
80       they never meet but there's a skirmish of wit
81       between them.
82 Beatrice.
83       Alas! he gets nothing by that. In our last
84       conflict four of his five wits went halting off, and
85       now is the whole man governed with one: so that if
86       he have wit enough to keep himself warm, let him
87       bear it for a difference between himself and his
88       horse; for it is all the wealth that he hath left,
89       to be known a reasonable creature. Who is his
90       companion now? He hath every month a new sworn brother.
91 Messenger.
92       Is't possible?
93 Beatrice.
94       Very easily possible: he wears his faith but as
95       the fashion of his hat; it ever changes with the
96       next block.
97 Messenger.
98       I see, lady, the gentleman is not in your books.
99 Beatrice.
100       No; an he were, I would burn my study. But, I pray
101       you, who is his companion? Is there no young
102       squarer now that will make a voyage with him to the devil?
103 Messenger.
104       He is most in the company of the right noble Claudio.
105 Beatrice.
106       O Lord, he will hang upon him like a disease: he
107       is sooner caught than the pestilence, and the taker
108       runs presently mad. God help the noble Claudio! if
109       he have caught the Benedick, it will cost him a
110       thousand pound ere a' be cured.
111 Messenger.
112       I will hold friends with you, lady.
113 Beatrice.
114       Do, good friend.
115 Leonato.
116       You will never run mad, niece.
117 Beatrice.
118       No, not till a hot January.
119 Messenger.
120       Don Pedro is approached.
 
121 [Enter DON PEDRO, DON JOHN, CLAUDIO, BENEDICK, and BALTHASAR]
 
122 Don Pedro.
123       Good Signior Leonato, you are come to meet your
124       trouble: the fashion of the world is to avoid
125       cost, and you encounter it.
126 Leonato.
127       Never came trouble to my house in the likeness of
128       your grace: for trouble being gone, comfort should
129       remain; but when you depart from me, sorrow abides
130       and happiness takes his leave.
131 Don Pedro.
132       You embrace your charge too willingly. I think this
133       is your daughter.
134 Leonato.
135       Her mother hath many times told me so.
136 Benedick.
137       Were you in doubt, sir, that you asked her?
138 Leonato.
139       Signior Benedick, no; for then were you a child.
140 Don Pedro.
141       You have it full, Benedick: we may guess by this
142       what you are, being a man. Truly, the lady fathers
143       herself. Be happy, lady; for you are like an
144       honourable father.
145 Benedick.
146       If Signior Leonato be her father, she would not
147       have his head on her shoulders for all Messina, as
148       like him as she is.
149 Beatrice.
150       I wonder that you will still be talking, Signior
151       Benedick: nobody marks you.
152 Benedick.
153       What, my dear Lady Disdain! are you yet living?
154 Beatrice.
155       Is it possible disdain should die while she hath
156       such meet food to feed it as Signior Benedick?
157       Courtesy itself must convert to disdain, if you come
158       in her presence.
159 Benedick.
160       Then is courtesy a turncoat. But it is certain I
161       am loved of all ladies, only you excepted: and I
162       would I could find in my heart that I had not a hard
163       heart; for, truly, I love none.
164 Beatrice.
165       A dear happiness to women: they would else have
166       been troubled with a pernicious suitor. I thank God
167       and my cold blood, I am of your humour for that: I
168       had rather hear my dog bark at a crow than a man
169       swear he loves me.
170 Benedick.
171       God keep your ladyship still in that mind! so some
172       gentleman or other shall 'scape a predestinate
173       scratched face.
174 Beatrice.
175       Scratching could not make it worse, an 'twere such
176       a face as yours were.
177 Benedick.
178       Well, you are a rare parrot-teacher.
179 Beatrice.
180       A bird of my tongue is better than a beast of yours.
181 Benedick.
182       I would my horse had the speed of your tongue, and
183       so good a continuer. But keep your way, i' God's
184       name; I have done.
185 Beatrice.
186       You always end with a jade's trick: I know you of old.
187 Don Pedro.
188       That is the sum of all, Leonato. Signior Claudio
189       and Signior Benedick, my dear friend Leonato hath
190       invited you all. I tell him we shall stay here at
191       the least a month; and he heartily prays some
192       occasion may detain us longer. I dare swear he is no
193       hypocrite, but prays from his heart.
194 Leonato.
195       If you swear, my lord, you shall not be forsworn.
196       [To DON JOHN]
197       Let me bid you welcome, my lord: being reconciled to
198       the prince your brother, I owe you all duty.
199 Don John.
200       I thank you: I am not of many words, but I thank
201       you.
202 Leonato.
203       Please it your grace lead on?
204 Don Pedro.
205       Your hand, Leonato; we will go together.
 
206 [Exeunt all except BENEDICK and CLAUDIO]
 
207 Claudio.
208       Benedick, didst thou note the daughter of Signior Leonato?
209 Benedick.
210       I noted her not; but I looked on her.
211 Claudio.
212       Is she not a modest young lady?
213 Benedick.
214       Do you question me, as an honest man should do, for
215       my simple true judgment; or would you have me speak
216       after my custom, as being a professed tyrant to their sex?
217 Claudio.
218       No; I pray thee speak in sober judgment.
219 Benedick.
220       Why, i' faith, methinks she's too low for a high
221       praise, too brown for a fair praise and too little
222       for a great praise: only this commendation I can
223       afford her, that were she other than she is, she
224       were unhandsome; and being no other but as she is, I
225       do not like her.
226 Claudio.
227       Thou thinkest I am in sport: I pray thee tell me
228       truly how thou likest her.
229 Benedick.
230       Would you buy her, that you inquire after her?
231 Claudio.
232       Can the world buy such a jewel?
233 Benedick.
234       Yea, and a case to put it into. But speak you this
235       with a sad brow? or do you play the flouting Jack,
236       to tell us Cupid is a good hare-finder and Vulcan a
237       rare carpenter? Come, in what key shall a man take
238       you, to go in the song?
239 Claudio.
240       In mine eye she is the sweetest lady that ever I
241       looked on.
242 Benedick.
243       I can see yet without spectacles and I see no such
244       matter: there's her cousin, an she were not
245       possessed with a fury, exceeds her as much in beauty
246       as the first of May doth the last of December. But I
247       hope you have no intent to turn husband, have you?
248 Claudio.
249       I would scarce trust myself, though I had sworn the
250       contrary, if Hero would be my wife.
251 Benedick.
252       Is't come to this? In faith, hath not the world
253       one man but he will wear his cap with suspicion?
254       Shall I never see a bachelor of three-score again?
255       Go to, i' faith; an thou wilt needs thrust thy neck
256       into a yoke, wear the print of it and sigh away
257       Sundays. Look Don Pedro is returned to seek you.
 
258 [Re-enter DON PEDRO]
 
259 Don Pedro.
260       What secret hath held you here, that you followed
261       not to Leonato's?
262 Benedick.
263       I would your grace would constrain me to tell.
264 Don Pedro.
265       I charge thee on thy allegiance.
266 Benedick.
267       You hear, Count Claudio: I can be secret as a dumb
268       man; I would have you think so; but, on my
269       allegiance, mark you this, on my allegiance. He is
270       in love. With who? now that is your grace's part.
271       Mark how short his answer is;—With Hero, Leonato's
272       short daughter.
273 Claudio.
274       If this were so, so were it uttered.
275 Benedick.
276       Like the old tale, my lord: 'it is not so, nor
277       'twas not so, but, indeed, God forbid it should be
278       so.'
279 Claudio.
280       If my passion change not shortly, God forbid it
281       should be otherwise.
282 Don Pedro.
283       Amen, if you love her; for the lady is very well worthy.
284 Claudio.
285       You speak this to fetch me in, my lord.
286 Don Pedro.
287       By my troth, I speak my thought.
288 Claudio.
289       And, in faith, my lord, I spoke mine.
290 Benedick.
291       And, by my two faiths and troths, my lord, I spoke mine.
292 Claudio.
293       That I love her, I feel.
294 Don Pedro.
295       That she is worthy, I know.
296 Benedick.
297       That I neither feel how she should be loved nor
298       know how she should be worthy, is the opinion that
299       fire cannot melt out of me: I will die in it at the stake.
300 Don Pedro.
301       Thou wast ever an obstinate heretic in the despite
302       of beauty.
303 Claudio.
304       And never could maintain his part but in the force
305       of his will.
306 Benedick.
307       That a woman conceived me, I thank her; that she
308       brought me up, I likewise give her most humble
309       thanks: but that I will have a recheat winded in my
310       forehead, or hang my bugle in an invisible baldrick,
311       all women shall pardon me. Because I will not do
312       them the wrong to mistrust any, I will do myself the
313       right to trust none; and the fine is, for the which
314       I may go the finer, I will live a bachelor.
315 Don Pedro.
316       I shall see thee, ere I die, look pale with love.
317 Benedick.
318       With anger, with sickness, or with hunger, my lord,
319       not with love: prove that ever I lose more blood
320       with love than I will get again with drinking, pick
321       out mine eyes with a ballad-maker's pen and hang me
322       up at the door of a brothel-house for the sign of
323       blind Cupid.
324 Don Pedro.
325       Well, if ever thou dost fall from this faith, thou
326       wilt prove a notable argument.
327 Benedick.
328       If I do, hang me in a bottle like a cat and shoot
329       at me; and he that hits me, let him be clapped on
330       the shoulder, and called Adam.
331 Don Pedro.
332       Well, as time shall try: 'In time the savage bull
333       doth bear the yoke.'
334 Benedick.
335       The savage bull may; but if ever the sensible
336       Benedick bear it, pluck off the bull's horns and set
337       them in my forehead: and let me be vilely painted,
338       and in such great letters as they write 'Here is
339       good horse to hire,' let them signify under my sign
340       'Here you may see Benedick the married man.'
341 Claudio.
342       If this should ever happen, thou wouldst be horn-mad.
343 Don Pedro.
344       Nay, if Cupid have not spent all his quiver in
345       Venice, thou wilt quake for this shortly.
346 Benedick.
347       I look for an earthquake too, then.
348 Don Pedro.
349       Well, you temporize with the hours. In the
350       meantime, good Signior Benedick, repair to
351       Leonato's: commend me to him and tell him I will
352       not fail him at supper; for indeed he hath made
353       great preparation.
354 Benedick.
355       I have almost matter enough in me for such an
356       embassage; and so I commit you
357 Claudio.
358       To the tuition of God: From my house, if I had it,—
359 Don Pedro.
360       The sixth of July: Your loving friend, Benedick.
361 Benedick.
362       Nay, mock not, mock not. The body of your
363       discourse is sometime guarded with fragments, and
364       the guards are but slightly basted on neither: ere
365       you flout old ends any further, examine your
366       conscience: and so I leave you.
 
367 [Exit]
 
368 Claudio.
369       My liege, your highness now may do me good.
370 Don Pedro.
371       My love is thine to teach: teach it but how,
372       And thou shalt see how apt it is to learn
373       Any hard lesson that may do thee good.
374 Claudio.
375       Hath Leonato any son, my lord?
376 Don Pedro.
377       No child but Hero; she's his only heir.
378       Dost thou affect her, Claudio?
379 Claudio.
380       O, my lord,
381       When you went onward on this ended action,
382       I look'd upon her with a soldier's eye,
383       That liked, but had a rougher task in hand
384       Than to drive liking to the name of love:
385       But now I am return'd and that war-thoughts
386       Have left their places vacant, in their rooms
387       Come thronging soft and delicate desires,
388       All prompting me how fair young Hero is,
389       Saying, I liked her ere I went to wars.
390 Don Pedro.
391       Thou wilt be like a lover presently
392       And tire the hearer with a book of words.
393       If thou dost love fair Hero, cherish it,
394       And I will break with her and with her father,
395       And thou shalt have her. Was't not to this end
396       That thou began'st to twist so fine a story?
397 Claudio.
398       How sweetly you do minister to love,
399       That know love's grief by his complexion!
400       But lest my liking might too sudden seem,
401       I would have salved it with a longer treatise.
402 Don Pedro.
403       What need the bridge much broader than the flood?
404       The fairest grant is the necessity.
405       Look, what will serve is fit: 'tis once, thou lovest,
406       And I will fit thee with the remedy.
407       I know we shall have revelling to-night:
408       I will assume thy part in some disguise
409       And tell fair Hero I am Claudio,
410       And in her bosom I'll unclasp my heart
411       And take her hearing prisoner with the force
412       And strong encounter of my amorous tale:
413       Then after to her father will I break;
414       And the conclusion is, she shall be thine.
415       In practise let us put it presently.
 
416 [Exeunt]
 

2. Act I, Scene 2

0 A room in LEONATO’s house.
 
1 [Enter LEONATO and ANTONIO, meeting]
 
2 Leonato.
3       How now, brother! Where is my cousin, your son?
4       hath he provided this music?
5 Antonio.
6       He is very busy about it. But, brother, I can tell
7       you strange news that you yet dreamt not of.
8 Leonato.
9       Are they good?
10 Antonio.
11       As the event stamps them: but they have a good
12       cover; they show well outward. The prince and Count
13       Claudio, walking in a thick-pleached alley in mine
14       orchard, were thus much overheard by a man of mine:
15       the prince discovered to Claudio that he loved my
16       niece your daughter and meant to acknowledge it
17       this night in a dance: and if he found her
18       accordant, he meant to take the present time by the
19       top and instantly break with you of it.
20 Leonato.
21       Hath the fellow any wit that told you this?
22 Antonio.
23       A good sharp fellow: I will send for him; and
24       question him yourself.
25 Leonato.
26       No, no; we will hold it as a dream till it appear
27       itself: but I will acquaint my daughter withal,
28       that she may be the better prepared for an answer,
29       if peradventure this be true. Go you and tell her of it.
30       [Enter Attendants]
31       Cousins, you know what you have to do. O, I cry you
32       mercy, friend; go you with me, and I will use your
33       skill. Good cousin, have a care this busy time.
 
34 [Exeunt]
 

3. Act I, Scene 3

0 The same.
 
1 [Enter DON JOHN and CONRADE]
 
2 Conrade.
3       What the good-year, my lord! why are you thus out
4       of measure sad?
5 Don John.
6       There is no measure in the occasion that breeds;
7       therefore the sadness is without limit.
8 Conrade.
9       You should hear reason.
10 Don John.
11       And when I have heard it, what blessing brings it?
12 Conrade.
13       If not a present remedy, at least a patient
14       sufferance.
15 Don John.
16       I wonder that thou, being, as thou sayest thou art,
17       born under Saturn, goest about to apply a moral
18       medicine to a mortifying mischief. I cannot hide
19       what I am: I must be sad when I have cause and smile
20       at no man's jests, eat when I have stomach and wait
21       for no man's leisure, sleep when I am drowsy and
22       tend on no man's business, laugh when I am merry and
23       claw no man in his humour.
24 Conrade.
25       Yea, but you must not make the full show of this
26       till you may do it without controlment. You have of
27       late stood out against your brother, and he hath
28       ta'en you newly into his grace; where it is
29       impossible you should take true root but by the
30       fair weather that you make yourself: it is needful
31       that you frame the season for your own harvest.
32 Don John.
33       I had rather be a canker in a hedge than a rose in
34       his grace, and it better fits my blood to be
35       disdained of all than to fashion a carriage to rob
36       love from any: in this, though I cannot be said to
37       be a flattering honest man, it must not be denied
38       but I am a plain-dealing villain. I am trusted with
39       a muzzle and enfranchised with a clog; therefore I
40       have decreed not to sing in my cage. If I had my
41       mouth, I would bite; if I had my liberty, I would do
42       my liking: in the meantime let me be that I am and
43       seek not to alter me.
44 Conrade.
45       Can you make no use of your discontent?
46 Don John.
47       I make all use of it, for I use it only.
48       Who comes here?
49       [Enter BORACHIO]
50       What news, Borachio?
51 Borachio.
52       I came yonder from a great supper: the prince your
53       brother is royally entertained by Leonato: and I
54       can give you intelligence of an intended marriage.
55 Don John.
56       Will it serve for any model to build mischief on?
57       What is he for a fool that betroths himself to
58       unquietness?
59 Borachio.
60       Marry, it is your brother's right hand.
61 Don John.
62       Who? the most exquisite Claudio?
63 Borachio.
64       Even he.
65 Don John.
66       A proper squire! And who, and who? which way looks
67       he?
68 Borachio.
69       Marry, on Hero, the daughter and heir of Leonato.
70 Don John.
71       A very forward March-chick! How came you to this?
72 Borachio.
73       Being entertained for a perfumer, as I was smoking a
74       musty room, comes me the prince and Claudio, hand
75       in hand in sad conference: I whipt me behind the
76       arras; and there heard it agreed upon that the
77       prince should woo Hero for himself, and having
78       obtained her, give her to Count Claudio.
79 Don John.
80       Come, come, let us thither: this may prove food to
81       my displeasure. That young start-up hath all the
82       glory of my overthrow: if I can cross him any way, I
83       bless myself every way. You are both sure, and will assist me?
84 Conrade.
85       To the death, my lord.
86 Don John.
87       Let us to the great supper: their cheer is the
88       greater that I am subdued. Would the cook were of
89       my mind! Shall we go prove what's to be done?
90 Borachio.
91       We'll wait upon your lordship.
