  4. vanity ! I am as hot as molten lead , and as heavy too . God
  5. keep lead out of me ! I need no more weight than mine own

Falstaff

45 - 47
  1. O Hal , I prithee give me leave to breathe a while . Turk
  2. Gregory never did such deeds in arms as I have done this
  3. day . I have paid Percy , I have made him sure .

Prince Henry

48 - 49
  1. He is indeed , and living to kill thee . I prithee lend me thy
  2. sword .

Falstaff

50 - 51
  1. Nay , before God , Hal , if Percy be alive , thou gets not my
  2. sword , but take my pistol , if thou wilt .

Prince Henry

52
  1. Give it me . What ? Is it in the case ?

Falstaff

53
  1. Ay , Hal , ’tis hot , ’tis hot . There’s that will sack a city .
  1. The Prince draws it out , and finds it to be a bottle of
  2. sack .

Prince Henry

54
  1. What , is it a time to jest and dally now ?
  1. He throws the bottle at him .
  1. Exit .

Falstaff

55 - 59
  1. Well , if Percy be alive , I’ll pierce him . If he do come in
  2. my way , so ; if he do not , if I come in his willingly , let
  3. him make a carbonado of me . I like not such grinning honor
  4. as Sir Walter hath . Give me life , which if I can save , so ;
  5. if not , honor comes unlook’d for , and there’s an end .
  1. Exit .
