    Sir Hugh Evans

    The dozen white louses do become an old coat well; it agrees well, passant. It is a familiar beast to man, and signifies love.

    Sir Hugh Evans

    Yes, py'r lady. If he has a quarter of your coat, there is but three skirts for yourself, in my simple conjectures. But that is all one. If Sir John Falstaff have committed disparagements unto you, I am of the church, and will be glad to do my benevolence to make atonements and compromises between you.

    The Council shall hear it, it is a riot.

    Sir Hugh Evans

    It is not meet the Council hear a riot; there is no fear of Got in a riot. The Council, look you, shall desire to hear the fear of Got, and not to hear a riot. Take your vizaments in that.
