	[Enter CLOTEN and two Lords]

First Lord: Sir, I would advise you to shift a shirt; the
	violence of action hath made you reek as a
	sacrifice: where air comes out, air comes in:
	there's none abroad so wholesome as that you vent.

CLOTEN: If my shirt were bloody, then to shift it. Have I hurt him?

Second Lord: [Aside]  No, 'faith; not so much as his patience.

First Lord: Hurt him! his body's a passable carcass, if he be
	not hurt: it is a thoroughfare for steel, if it be not hurt.

Second Lord: [Aside]  His steel was in debt; it went o' the
	backside the town.

CLOTEN: The villain would not stand me.

Second Lord: [Aside]  No; but he fled forward still, toward your face.

First Lord: Stand you! You have land enough of your own: but
	he added to your having; gave you some ground.

Second Lord: [Aside]  As many inches as you have oceans. Puppies!

CLOTEN: I would they had not come between us.

Second Lord: [Aside]  So would I, till you had measured how long
	a fool you were upon the ground.

CLOTEN: And that she should love this fellow and refuse me!

Second Lord: [Aside]  If it be a sin to make a true election, she
	is damned.

First Lord: Sir, as I told you always, her beauty and her brain
	go not together: she's a good sign, but I have seen
	small reflection of her wit.

Second Lord: [Aside]  She shines not upon fools, lest the
	reflection should hurt her.

CLOTEN: Come, I'll to my chamber. Would there had been some
	hurt done!

Second Lord: [Aside]  I wish not so; unless it had been the fall
	of an ass, which is no great hurt.

CLOTEN: You'll go with us?

First Lord: I'll attend your lordship.

CLOTEN: Nay, come, let's go together.

Second Lord: Well, my lord.

	[Exeunt]
