Act III, Scene 3
Illyria. A street.
- Enter Sebastian and Antonio.
Sebastian1 - 3
- I would not by my will have troubled you,
- But since you make your pleasure of your pains,
- I will no further chide you.
Antonio4 - 13
- I could not stay behind you. My desire
- (More sharp than filed steel) did spur me forth,
- And not all love to see you (though so much
- As might have drawn one to a longer voyage)
- But jealousy what might befall your travel,
- Being skilless in these parts; which to a stranger,
- Unguided and unfriended, often prove
- Rough and unhospitable. My willing love,
- The rather by these arguments of fear,
- Set forth in your pursuit.
Sebastian14 - 20
- My kind Antonio,
- I can no other answer make but thanks,
- And thanks; and ever oft good turns
- Are shuffled off with such uncurrent pay;
- But were my worth as is my conscience firm,
- You should find better dealing. What’s to do?
- Shall we go see the reliques of this town?
- Tomorrow, sir; best first go see your lodging.
Sebastian22 - 25
- I am not weary, and ’tis long to night;
- I pray you let us satisfy our eyes
- With the memorials and the things of fame
- That do renown this city.
Antonio26 - 30
- Would you’ld pardon me.
- I do not without danger walk these streets.
- Once in a sea-fight ’gainst the Count his galleys
- I did some service, of such note indeed,
- That were I ta’en here, it would scarce be answer’d.
- Belike you slew great number of his people?
Antonio32 - 39
- Th’ offense is not of such a bloody nature,
- Albeit the quality of the time and quarrel
- Might well have given us bloody argument.
- It might have since been answer’d in repaying
- What we took from them, which for traffic’s sake
- Most of our city did. Only myself stood out,
- For which if I be lapsed in this place
- I shall pay dear.
- Do not then walk too open.
Antonio41 - 45
- It doth not fit me. Hold, sir, here’s my purse.
- In the south suburbs at the Elephant
- Is best to lodge. I will bespeak our diet,
- Whiles you beguile the time, and feed your knowledge
- With viewing of the town. There shall you have me.
- Why I your purse?
Antonio47 - 49
- Haply your eye shall light upon some toy
- You have desire to purchase; and your store
- I think is not for idle markets, sir.
Sebastian50 - 51
- I’ll be your purse-bearer, and leave you
- For an hour.
- To th’ Elephant.
- I do remember.
