How we cite our quotes:

Quote #4

Where we almost, yea, more than married are. (line 11)

They are "almost" married because their bloods have mixed, but they haven't had, you know, like the whole ceremony, without which you can't be married! Jeez. On the other hand, they are "more than married" because they have already consummated the marriage inside the flea.

Quote #5

Just so much honour, when thou yield'st to me, (line 26)

Not if, but when. You can say one thing about this guy: he's got confidence.
