Henry IV, Pt. 1: Act 5, Scene 3

Henry IV, Pt. 1
Act 5, Scene 3

The plain between the camps.

  1. The trumpets sound. The King enters with his power and
  2. passes over.
  1. Alarm to the battle. Then enter Douglas and Sir Walter
  2. Blunt.

Blunt

5 - 7
  1. What is thy name, that in battle thus
  2. Thou crossest me? What honor dost thou seek
  3. Upon my head?

Earl of Douglas

8 - 10
  1.               Know then, my name is Douglas,
  2. And I do haunt thee in the battle thus
  3. Because some tell me that thou art a king.

Blunt

11
  1. They tell thee true.

Earl of Douglas

12 - 15
  1. The Lord of Stafford dear today hath bought
  2. Thy likeness, for in stead of thee, King Harry,
  3. This sword hath ended him. So shall it thee,
  4. Unless thou yield thee as my prisoner.

Blunt

16 - 18
  1. I was not born a yielder, thou proud Scot,
  2. And thou shalt find a king that will revenge
  3. Lord Stafford’s death.
  1. They fight.
  1. Douglas kills Blunt.
  1. Then enter Hotspur.

Hotspur

22 - 23
  1. O Douglas, hadst thou fought at Holmedon thus,
  2. I never had triumph’d upon a Scot.

Earl of Douglas

24
  1. All’s done, all’s won, here breathless lies the King.

Hotspur

25
  1. Where?

Earl of Douglas

26
  1. Here.

Hotspur

27 - 29
  1. This, Douglas? No, I know this face full well.
  2. A gallant knight he was, his name was Blunt,
  3. Semblably furnish’d like the King himself.

Earl of Douglas

30 - 32
  1. A fool go with thy soul, whither it goes!
  2. A borrowed title hast thou bought too dear.
  3. Why didst thou tell me that thou wert a king?

Hotspur

33
  1. The King hath many marching in his coats.

Earl of Douglas

34 - 36
  1. Now by my sword, I will kill all his coats;
  2. I’ll murder all his wardrop, piece by piece,
  3. Until I meet the King.

Hotspur

37 - 38
  1.                        Up and away!
  2. Our soldiers stand full fairly for the day.
  1. Exeunt.
  1. Alarm. Enter Falstaff solus.

Falstaff

41 - 49
  1. Though I could scape shot-free at London, I fear the shot
  2. here, here’s no scoring but upon the pate. Soft, who are
  3. you? Sir Walter Blunt. There’s honor for you! Here’s no
  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
  6. bowels. I have led my ragamuffins where they are pepper’d;
  7. there’s not three of my hundred and fifty left alive, and
  8. they are for the town’s end, to beg during life. But who
  9. comes here?
  1. Enter the Prince.

Prince Henry

51 - 54
  1. What, stands thou idle here? Lend me thy sword.
  2. Many a nobleman lies stark and stiff
  3. Under the hoofs of vaunting enemies,
  4. Whose deaths are yet unreveng’d. I prithee lend me thy sword.

Falstaff

55 - 57
  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

58 - 59
  1. He is indeed, and living to kill thee. I prithee lend me thy
  2. sword.

Falstaff

60 - 61
  1. Nay, before God, Hal, if Percy be alive, thou gets not my
  2. sword, but take my pistol, if thou wilt.

Prince Henry

62
  1. Give it me. What? Is it in the case?

Falstaff

63
  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

66
  1. What, is it a time to jest and dally now?
  1. He throws the bottle at him.
  1. Exit.

Falstaff

69 - 73
  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.
