Cal. I thank my noble lord. Wilt thou be pleas'd to hearken once again to the suit I made to thee?
Ste. Marry, will I ; kneel and repeat it; I will stand, and so shall Trinculo.
Enter Ariel invisible.
Ari. Thou lieft.
Cal. Thou liest, thou jefting monkey, thou;
Ste. Trinculo, if you trouble him any more in's tale, by this hand, I will supplant some of your teeth.
Trin. Why, I said nothing.
Cal. I say, by forcery he got this ille ;
Ste. That's most certain.
Ste, How now shall this be compaft ? canst thou bring me to the party ?
Cal. Yea, yea, my lord, I'll yield him thee asleep, Where thou may'st knock a nail into his head.
Ari. Thou liest, thou canst not.
Cal. What a py'd ninny's this? thou scurvy patch!
Ste. Trinculo, run into no further danger: interrupt the monster one word further, and, by this hand, I'll turn my mercy out of doors, and make a stock-fifh of thee.
Trin. Why, what did I? I did nothing; I'd go further off.
Ste. Didst thou not say, he ly'd ?
[Beats him. As you like this, give me the lie another time.
Trin. I did not give thee the lie; out o’your wits, and hearing too? A pox o' your bottle! this can fack and drinking do. A murrain on your monster, and the devil take your fingers !
Cal. Ha, ha, ha.
Ste. Now, forward with your tale ; pr'ythee, stand further off.
Cal. Beat him enough ; after a little time I'll beat him too.
Ste. Stand further. Come, proceed.
Cal. Why, as I told thee, 'tis a custom with him I'th' afternoon to Neep; there thou may'st brain him, Having first seiz'd his books : or with a log Batter his skull, or paunch him with a stake, Or cut his wezand with thy knife. Remember, First to possess his books; for without them He's but a fot, as I am ; nor hath not One spirit to command. They all do hate him, As rootedly as I. Burn but his books ; He has brave utensils, (for so he calls them,) Which when he has an house, he'll deck withal. And that most deeply to confider, is The beauty of his daughter ; he himself Calls her a non-pareil : I ne'er faw woman, But only Sycorax my dam, and she : But she as far surpasses Sycorax, As greatest does the least.
Ste. Is it so brave a Lass?
Cal. Ay, lord ; she will become thy bed, I warrant, And bring thee forth brave brood,
Ste. Monster, I will kill this man: his daughter and I will be King and Queen, save our Graces : and Trine culo and thy self shall be Vice-Roys. Dost thou like the plot, Trinculo?
Ste. Give me thy hand ; I am sorry, I beat thee: but, while thou liv'ft, keep a good tongue in thy head.
Cal. Within this half hour will he be asleep;
Ste. Ay, on my honour.
Cal. Thou mak'st me merry; I am full of pleasure;
Ste. At thy request, monster, I will do reason, any reason: come on, Trinculo, let us sing. [Sings. Flout 'em, and skout 'em; and skout 'em, and flout
'em ; thought is free. Cal. That's not the tune.
[Ariel plays the Tune on a Tabor and Pipe. Ste. What is this same ?
Trin. This is the tune of our catch, plaid by the picture of no-body.
Ste. If thou be'ft a man, shew thy self in the likeness; if thou be'st a devil, take't as thou lift.
Trin. O, forgive me my sins !
Ste. He that dies, pays all debts: I defie thee. Met. cy upon us !
Cal. Art thou afraid?
Cal. Be not afraid ; the ise is full of noises, [not.
Ready to drop upon me; that when I wak'd,
Ste. This will prove a brave kingdom to me, where
Cal. When Prospero is destroy'd.
Trin. The found is going away ; let's follow it, and after do our work.
Ste. Lead, monster; we'll follow. I would I could see this taborer. He lays it on.
Trin. Wilt come? I'll follow Stephano. [Exeunt.
