The Merchant of Venice

Bassanio: Antonio, I am married to a wife
Which is as dear to me as life itself;
But life itself, my wife, and all the world,
Are not with me esteem’d above thy life:
I would lose all, ay, sacrifice them all
Here to this devil, to deliver you.

Antonio:

Romeo and Juliet, ~The greatest love story every told~

Romeo: Everything is terrible! My life is over!

Benvolio: I’m sorry? What?

Romeo: I’m dying of grief! No one has ever suffered like I suffer! The woman I love hates me! You’re laughing at me, aren’t you?

Benvolio

Romeo: Rosaline is perfect! She is witty and brilliant and she has just sworn to be chaste!

Benvolio: Listen, Romeo, just forget about her. If you meet another lady you’ll get over this one. Let’s party! You’ll see someone there you’d like.

Romeo: My pain is too deep! I’d have to forget how to think! No one else can compare to her!

Benvolio, Mercutio, everyone ever:

Romeo: This party sucks! I am so miserable! I miss Rosaline! Ughghhgh—

Juliet:

Romeo:

The Merchant of Venice

ANTONIO:
In sooth, I know not why I am so sad

SHYLOCK:
let the forfeit
Be nominated for an equal pound
Of your fair flesh, to be cut off and taken
In what part of your body pleaseth me.

ANTONIO: Content, i’ faith: I’ll seal to such a bond
And say there is much kindness in a Jew


BASSANIO: I like not fair terms and a villain’s mind.

The Tragedy of Richard the Third

KING RICHARD:
Queen, I have a proposal. Let me marry your eleven year old daughter, my niece.

QUEEN ELIZABETH
…You just murdered my husband. And my two young sons.

RICHARD: 
No, it’s cool. Because if you let me marry your daughter, I’ll bury them in her nest of spicery, and then they’ll be born anew and you’ll totes feel better about me having them killed!

ELIZABETH:



[Meanwhile, in the audience: Wait, did he just refer to an eleven year old’s uterus as a nest of spicery]?

OTHELLO:
Villain, be sure thou prove my love a whore, Be sure of it; give me the ocular proof: Or by the worth of man’s eternal soul, Thou hadst been better have been born a dog Than answer my waked wrath!

IAGO:

No touch of bashfulness? What, will you tear
Impatient answers from my gentle tongue?
Fie, fie! you counterfeit, you puppet, you!

HERMIA:

Boys Will Be Boys

ROMEO: Is love a tender thing? it is too rough,
Too rude, too boisterous, and it pricks like thorn.

MERCUTIO:

Misfits Locker Room

If love be rough with you, be rough with love;
Prick love for pricking, and you beat love down.
