    SCENE VII. Another part of the plains.

    Enter ACHILLES, with Myrmidons
    ACHILLES
    Come here about me, you my Myrmidons;
    Mark what I say. Attend me where I wheel:
    Strike not a stroke, but keep yourselves in breath:
    And when I have the bloody Hector found,
    Empale him with your weapons round about;
    In fellest manner execute your aims.
    Follow me, sirs, and my proceedings eye:
    It is decreed Hector the great must die.

    Exeunt

    Enter MENELAUS and PARIS, fighting: then THERSITES

    THERSITES
    The cuckold and the cuckold-maker are at it. Now,
    bull! now, dog! 'Loo, Paris, 'loo! now my double-
    henned sparrow! 'loo, Paris, 'loo! The bull has the
    game: ware horns, ho!

    Exeunt PARIS and MENELAUS

    Enter MARGARELON

    MARGARELON
    Turn, slave, and fight.

    THERSITES
    What art thou?

    MARGARELON
    A bastard son of Priam's.

    THERSITES
    I am a bastard too; I love bastards: I am a bastard
    begot, bastard instructed, bastard in mind, bastard
    in valour, in every thing illegitimate. One bear will
    not bite another, and wherefore should one bastard?
    Take heed, the quarrel's most ominous to us: if the
    son of a whore fight for a whore, he tempts judgment:
    farewell, bastard.

    Exit

    MARGARELON
    The devil take thee, coward!
