Merchant Of Venice Act 3; Scene 5

Start Yes, truly, for look you, the sins of the father are to be laid upon the children. Therefore I promise ye I fear you. I was always plain with you, and so now I speak my agitation of the matter. Therefore be o’ good cheer, for truly I think you are damned. There is but one hope in it that can do you any good, and that is but a kind of bastard hope neither.
JESSICAAnd what hope is that, I pray thee? Marry, you may partly hope that your father got you not, that you are not the Jew’s daughter.
JESSICAThat were a kind of bastard hope indeed. So the sins of my mother should be visited upon me. Truly then I fear you are damned both by father and mother. Thus when I shun Scylla your father, I fall into Charybdis your mother. Well, you are gone both ways.
JESSICAI shall be saved by my husband. He hath made me aChristian. Truly, the more to blame he. We were Christians eno’ before, e’en as many as could well live one by another. This making Christians will raise the price of hogs. If we grow all to be pork-eaters.
LORENZOHow every fool can play upon the word! I think the best grace of wit will shortly turn into silence, and discourse grow commendable in none only but parrots. Go in, sirrah. Bid them prepare for dinner. That is done, sir. They have all stomachs.
LORENZOGoodly Lord, what a wit-snapper are you! Then bid them prepare dinner. Wilt thou show the whole wealth of thy wit in an instant? I pray thee, understand a plain man in his plain meaning. Go to thy fellows, bid them cover the table, serve in the meat, and we will come in to dinner. For the table, sir, it shall be served in. For the meat, sir, it shall be covered. For your coming in to dinner, sir, why, let it be as humours and conceits shall govern.
