WILLIAM: Good even, Audrey.
AUDREY: God ye good even, William. 
WILLIAM: And good even to you, sir.
TOUCHSTONE: Good even, gentle friend. Cover thy
head, cover thy head; nay, prithee, be covered. How
old are you, friend?
WILLIAM: Five and twenty, sir. 
TOUCHSTONE: A ripe age. Is thy name William?
WILLIAM: William, sir.
TOUCHSTONE: A fair name. Wast born i' the forest
WILLIAM: Ay, sir, I thank God. 
TOUCHSTONE: 'Thank God;' a good answer. Art
WILLIAM: Faith, sir, so so.
TOUCHSTONE: 'So so' is good, very good, very
excellent good; and yet it is not; it is but so so. Art 
WILLIAM: Ay, sir, I have a pretty wit.
TOUCHSTONE: Why, thou sayest well. I do now
remember a saying, 'The fool doth think he is wise,
but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.' The 
heathen philosopher, when he had a desire to eat a
grape, would open his lips when he put it into his

eat and lips to open. You do love this maid?
WILLIAM: I do, sir. 
TOUCHSTONE: Give me your hand. Art thou learned?

WILLIAM: Which he, sir?
TOUCHSTONE: He, sir, that must marry this woman.

vulgar leave,-- the society,‹which in the boorish is

female, or, clown, thou perishest; or, to thy better

ado, or in steel; I will bandy with thee in faction; I
will o'er-run thee with policy; I will kill thee a
hundred and fifty ways: therefore tremble, and depart. 
AUDREY: Do, good William.
WILLIAM: God rest you merry, sir.
CORIN: Our master and mistress seeks you; come,
TOUCHSTONE: Trip, Audrey! trip, Audrey! I attend,
