Enter MISTRESS QUICKLY, with two officers; FANG with her and SNARE following
Master Fang, have you entered the action?
Where’s your yeoman? Is ’t a lusty yeoman? Will a'
stand to ’t?
5Sirrah! Where’s Snare?
O Lord, ay, good Master Snare.
Snare, we must arrest Sir John Falstaff.
Yea, good Master Snare, I have entered him and all.
10It may chance cost some of us our lives, for he will stab.
Alas the day, take heed of him. He stabbed me in mine own
house, and that most beastly, in good faith. He cares not what
mischief he does. If his weapon be out, he will foin like any
devil. He will spare neither man, woman, nor child.
15If I can close with him, I care not for his thrust.
