A Midsummer Night's Dream

Puck riding on a mouse   Oberon dropped some of the love-juice on Titania's eyelids.   Lysander addressed her in terms of extravagant love and admiration.   Hermia and Helena now fell to high words together.   The queen of the fairies crowned the ass's head with flowers.

As You Like It

Ganymede and Orlando.   And now the wrestling match began.   "I am out of suits with fortune, or I would give you a more valuable present."   Ganymede answered that he came of as good parentage as he did.

King Lear

King Lear and his daughter.   He told her that her virtues were a dowry above a kingdom.   He laid the unmannerly slave in the kennel.   He chose rather to encounter the utmost fury of the storm abroad, than stay under the same roof with these ungrateful daughters.

The Taming of the Shrew

Petruchio watches Katharine walk by.   She broke his head with her lute for presuming to find fault with her.   Petruchio, pretending to find fault with every dish, threw the meat about on the floor, and ordered the servants to remove it.   Katharine addressed the old man as her husband ordered her.
