SCENE 1.-A Public Place.
Enter SAMPSON and GREGORY, of the house of CAPULET, with swords and bucklers.
Sampson : REGORY, on my word, we'll not carry coals.
Gre. No, for then we should be colliers.
Sam. I mean, an we be in choler,
we'll draw. Gre. Ay, while you live, draw your neck out o' the collar.
Sam. I strike quickly, being moved.
Gre. To move is to stir, and to be valiant is to stand: therefore, if thou art moved, thou runn'st away.
Sam. A dog of that house shall move me to stand: I will take the wall of any man or maid of Montague's.
Gre. That shows thee a weak slave; for the weakest goes to the wall. The quarrel is between our masters and us their men.
Sam. 'T is all one, I will show myself a tyrant.
Gre. Draw thy tool ; here comes of the house of the Montagues.
Enter ABRAHAM and BALTHASAR.
Sam. My naked weapon is out : quarrel; I will back thee.
Gre. How! turn thy back and run ?
Sam. Let us take the law of our sides ; let them begin.
Gre. I will frown as I pass by, and let them take it as they list.
Sam. Nay, as they dare. I will bite my thumb at them; which is a disgrace to them, if they bear it. Abr. Do you bite your thumb at us, sir?
Sam. No, sir, I do not bite my thumb at you, sir; but I bite my thumb, sir.
Gre. Do you quarrel, sir?
, Sam. If you do, sir, I am for you : I serve as good a man as you.
Abr. No better.
Gre. Say better': here comes one of my master's kinsmen.
Sam. Yes, better, sir.
Sam. Draw, if you be men. Gregory, remember thy swashing blow.
