William Shakespeare: Romeo and Juliet, Act IV, Scene II
Enter Capulet, Lady Capulet, Nurse, and two Servingmen
Exit First Servant
Marry, sir, 'tis an ill cook that cannot lick his own fingers: therefore he that cannot lick his fingers goes not with me.
Exit Second Servant
What, is my daughter gone to Friar Laurence?
Of disobedient opposition
To you and your behests, and am enjoin'd
By holy Laurence to fall prostrate here,
And beg your pardon: pardon, I beseech you!
Henceforward I am ever ruled by you.
And gave him what becomed love I might,
Not step o'er the bounds of modesty.
This is as't should be. Let me see the county;
Ay, marry, go, I say, and fetch him hither.
Now, afore God! this reverend holy friar,
Our whole city is much bound to him.
To help me sort such needful ornaments
As you think fit to furnish me to-morrow?
Exeunt Juliet and Nurse
And all things shall be well, I warrant thee, wife:
Go thou to Juliet, help to deck up her;
I'll not to bed to-night; let me alone;
I'll play the housewife for this once. What, ho!
They are all forth. Well, I will walk myself
To County Paris, to prepare him up
Against to-morrow: my heart is wondrous light,
Since this same wayward girl is so reclaim'd.
