Much Ado About Nothing
Benedick, didst thou note the daughter of Signior Leonato?
I noted her not, but I look'd on her. (1.1.162)
I have almost matter enough in me for such an embassage; and
so I commit you--
To the tuition of God. From my house--if I had it--
The sixth of July. Your loving friend, Benedick.
Nay, mock not, mock not. The body of your discourse is
sometime guarded with fragments, and the guards are but slightly

your conscience. And so I leave you. (1.1.279)
The Prince and Count Claudio, walking in a
thick-pleached alley in mine orchard, were thus much overheard by a man of mine: the Prince discovered to Claudio that he loved my
niece your daughter and meant to acknowledge it this night in a
dance, and if he found her accordant, he meant to take the
present time by the top and instantly break with you of it.
Hath the fellow any wit that told you this? (1.2.8)
