Enter Sampson and Gregory (with swords and bucklers) of the house of Capulet.Samp. Gregory, on my word, we'll not carry coals.Greg. No, for then we should be colliers.Samp. I mean, an we be in choler, we'll draw.Greg. Ay, while you live, draw your neck out of collar.Samp. I strike quickly, being moved.Greg. But thou art not quickly moved to strike.Samp. A dog of the house of Montague moves me.Greg. To move is to stir, and to be valiant is to stand.Therefore, if thou art moved, thou runn'st away.Samp. A dog of that house shall move me to stand. I will takethe wall of any man or maid of Montague's.Greg. That shows thee a weak slave; for the weakest goes to thewall.Samp. 'Tis true; and therefore women, being the weaker vessels, are ever thrust to the wall. Therefore I will push Montague's menfrom the wall and thrust his maids to the wall.Greg. The quarrel is between our masters and us their men.Samp. 'Tis all one. I will show myself a tyrant. When I have fought with the men, I will be cruelwith the maids- I will cut off their heads.
