Quote #10

The devil take Henry of Lancaster and thee! (5.5.7)

It's about time Richard did something to defend himself. Here he fights for his life against the men who have come to execute him while he's in prison. He even manages to grab someone's sword and use it! Unfortunately, it's too little, too late: Richard is killed and falls to the ground once and for all.
