The Merry Wives of Windsor: Act V, Scene 3

The Merry Wives of Windsor
Act V, Scene 3

A street leading to the Windsor Park.

  1. Enter Mistress Page, Mistress Ford, Caius.

Mistress Page

1 - 4
  1. Master Doctor, my daughter is in green. When you see your
  2. time, take her by the hand, away with her to the deanery,
  3. and dispatch it quickly. Go before into the park; we two
  4. must go together.

Caius

5
  1. I know vat I have to do. Adieu.

Mistress Page

6 - 10
  1. Fare you well, sir.
  2. Exit Caius.
  3. My husband will not rejoice so much at the abuse of Falstaff
  4. as he will chafe at the doctor’s marrying my daughter. But
  5. ’tis no matter; better a little chiding than a great deal of
  6. heart-break.

Mistress Ford

11 - 12
  1. Where is Nan now, and her troop of fairies, and the Welsh
  2. devil Hugh?

Mistress Page

13 - 15
  1. They are all couch’d in a pit hard by Herne’s oak, with
  2. obscur’d lights; which, at the very instant of Falstaff’s
  3. and our meeting, they will at once display to the night.

Mistress Ford

16
  1. That cannot choose but amaze him.

Mistress Page

17 - 18
  1. If he be not amaz’d, he will be mock’d; if he be amaz’d, he
  2. will every way be mock’d.

Mistress Ford

19
  1. We’ll betray him finely.

Mistress Page

20 - 21
  1. Against such lewdsters, and their lechery,
  2. Those that betray them do no treachery.

Mistress Ford

22
  1. The hour draws on. To the oak, to the oak!
  1. Exeunt.
