Falstaff: Briefly, I do mean to make love to Ford’s wife. I spy

entertainment in her: she discourses, she carves, she gives the

leer of invitation. I can construe the action of her familiar style,

and the hardest voice of her behaviour – to be Englished rightly – is:

‘I am Sir John Falstaff’s’.

Pistol: He hath studied her well, and translated her will – out of

honesty into English.

Falstaff: … Page’s wife… even now gave me good eyes too,

examined my parts with most judicious oeillades… O, she

did so course o’er my exteriors, with such a greedy intention, that

the appetite of her eye did seem to scorch me up like a burning glass.

… she is a region all Guiana, all gold and bounty. I will be cheaters

to them both, and they shall be exchequers to me. (1.3.40 – 67).

Shallow: Sir Hugh persuade me not. I will make a Star Chamber matter of it. (1.1.1)

Page: I thank you for my venison, Master Shallow.

Shallow: Master Page, I am glad to see you, much good do it your good heart. I wished your venison better. It was ill killed. (1.1.73-77)

Shallow: Knight, you have beaten my men, killed my deer and broke open my lodge.

Falstaff: But not kissed your keeper’s daughter! (1.1.104-6)

Pistol: Prevent, or go thou like Sir Actaeon he … O, odious is the name!

Ford: What name, sir?

Pistol: The horn, I say (2.1.105 – 110)

Page: If he should intend this voyage toward my wife, I would turn her loose on him, and what he gets more of her than sharp words, let it lie on my head.

Ford: I do not misdoubt my wife, but I would be loath to turn them together. A man may be too confident. I would have nothing lie on my head. (2.1.165 – 170).

Ford: Good plots they are laid, and our revolted wives share damnation together. Well, I will take him … divulge Page himself for a secure and willful Actaeon, and to these violent proceedings all my neighbours shall cry aim (3.2.34 – 40).

  • Mistress Page: For shame…! Your husband’s here at hand: bethink you of some conveyance … Look, here is a basket … he may creep in here, and throw foul linen upon him, as if it were going to bucking.

  • Ford: … How now? Whither bear you this? …

  • Mistress Ford: Why, what have you to do whither they bear it? You were best meddle with buck-washing!

  • Ford: Buck? I would I could wash myself of the buck! Buck, buck, buck! Ay, buck! I warrant you, buck – and of the season, too it shall appear. (3.3.140 – 146)

  • Falstaff: … comes in one Mistress Page, gives intelligence of Ford’s approach; … they conveyed me into a buck-basket.

  • Ford: A buck-basket?

  • Falstaff: by the Lord, a buck-basket! Rammed me in with foul shirts and smocks, socks, foul stockings … on went he for a search, and away went I for foul clothes … In the height of this … I was … thrown into the Thames and cooled, glowing hot, in that surge like horseshoe… I will be thrown into Etna, as I have been into Thames, ere I will leave her thus … Master Brook, you shall cuckold Ford.

  • Ford: Hum – ha! Is this a vision? Is this a dream? …. Awake; awake, Master Ford! There’s a hole made in your best coat, Master Ford. This ’tis to be married, this ’tis to have linen and buck-baskets! (3.5.78 – 132).

  • 5.5 Stage Direction Quarto: ‘Enter sir Iohn with a Bucks head vpon him’

  • Falstaff: I am here a Windsor stag, and the fattest, I think i’th’forest. Who comes here? My doe? My doe with the black scut? Let the sky rain potatoes, let it thunder to the tune of ‘Greensleeves’ … Divide me like a bribed buck, each a haunch … my horns I bequeath your husbands (5.5.12 – 26)

  • Falstaff: His thefts were too open; his filching was like an unskillful singer, he kept not time.

  • Nim: The good humour is to steal at a minute’s rest.

  • Pistol: ‘Convey’ the wise it call. ‘Steal’? Foh! A fico for the phrase!

  • Host: Let them keep their limbs whole and hack our English. 3.1.71

  • Ford: See the hell of having a false woman: my bed shall be abused, my coffers ransacked, my reputation gnawn at; and I shall … stand under the adoption of abominable terms… Terms, names! … cuckold? Wittol? Cuckold! I had rather trust a Fleming with my butter, Parson Hugh … with my cheese, an Irishman with my aqua-vitae bottle … than my wife with herself. Then she plots, then she ruminates, then she devises; that what they think in their hearts they may effect, they will break their hearts but they will effect. God be praised for my jealousy! … Fie, fie, Fie! Cuckold, cuckold, cuckold! (2.2.276-297)
