The Merry Wives of Windsor

Act V, Scene 2

Windsor Park.
 
[Enter PAGE, SHALLOW, and SLENDER]
 
PAGE
Come, come; we'll couch in the castle-ditch till we see the light of our fairies. Remember, son Slender, my daughter.
 
SLENDER
Ay, forsooth; I have spoke with her and we have a nay-word how to know one another: I come to her in white, and cry mum; she cries budget; and by that we know one another.
 
SHALLOW
That's good too: but what needs either your mum or her budget? the white will decipher her well enough. It hath struck ten o'clock.
 
PAGE
The night is dark; light and spirits will become it well. Heaven prosper our sport! No man means evil but the devil, and we shall know him by his horns. Let's away; follow me.
 
[Exeunt]
