Act V. Scene
Scene III.The Street in Windsor.
Enter MISTRESS PAGE, MISTRESS FORD, and
Mrs. Page. Master doctor, my daughter is in
green: when you see your time, take her by the
hand, away with her to the deanery, and dispatch
it quickly. Go before into the Park: we two
must go together.
Caius. I know vat I have to do. Adieu.
Mrs. Page. Fare you well, sir. [Exit CAIUS.]
My husband will not rejoice so much at the
abuse of Falstaff, as he will chafe at the doctor's
marrying my daughter: but 'tis no matter; better
a little chiding than a great deal of heart break.
Mrs. Ford. Where is Nan now and her troop
of fairies, and the Welsh devil, Hugh?
Mrs. Page. They are all couched in a pit hard
by Herne's oak, with obscured lights; which, at
the very instant of Falstaff's and our meeting,
they will at once display to the night.
Mrs. Ford. That cannot choose but amaze
Mrs. Page. If he be not amazed, he will be
mocked; if he be amazed, he will every way be
Mrs. Ford. We'll betray him finely.
Mrs. Page. Against such lewdsters and their
Those that betray them do no treachery.
Mrs. Ford. The hour draws on: to the oak,
to the oak! [Exeunt.
