By this hand, I will supplant some of your teeth.
Mome, malthorse, capon, coxcomb, idiot, patch…
A knave, beggar, coward, pander and the son and heir of a mongrel bitch; one whom I will beat into clamorous whining if thou deniest the least syllable of thy addition.
O thou caitiff! O thou varlet! O thou wicked Hannibal!
I will deal in poison with thee, or in bastinado, or in steel. I will bandy with thee in faction; I will o’er-run thee with policy; I will kill thee a hundred and fifty ways.
Pistol’s cock is up, and flashing fire will follow.
Fie, thou dishonest Satan! (I call thee by the most modest terms, for I am one of those gentle ones that will use the devil himself with courtesy.)
Your hearts I’ll stamp out with my horse’s heels and make a quagmire of your mingled brains.
I will beat thee into handsomeness.

Let him that makes but trifles of his eyes first hand me.
Sblood, you starveling, you eel-skin, you dried neat’s tongue, you bull’s pizzle, you stock-fish!
I’ll spurn thine eyes like balls before me! I’ll unhair thy head! Thou shalt be whipped with wire and stewed in brine, smarting in lingering pickle!
O villain! Thou wilt be condemned into everlasting redemption for this.
Thou elvish-marked, abortive rooting-hog!...Thou slander of thy heavy mother’s womb, thou loathed issue of thy father’s loins, thou rag of honour, thou detested—
Thou liest, thou thread, thou thimble, thou yard, three-quarters, half-yeard, quarter, nail! Thou flea, thou nit, thou winter cricket thou!
Out, you green-sickness carrion! Out, you baggage! You tallow face!
For, though I am not splenative rash, yet have I in me something dangerous which let thy wisdom fear.
Get you gone, you dwarf! You minimus, of hindering knotgrass made! You bead, you acorn!
