Changes to another part of the island.
Enter Caliban, Stephano and Trinculo. Ste. Tell not me; when the butt is out, we will drink water, not a drop before; therefore bear up, and board 'em, fervant-monster ; drink to me.
Trin. Servant-monster! the folly of this island! they say, there's but five upon this isle ; we are three of them, if the other two be brain'd like us, the state totters.
Ste. Drink, servant-monfter, when I bid thee; thy eyes are almost set in thy head.
Trin. Where should they be fet else ? he were a brave monster indeed, if they were set in his tail.
Ste. My man-monster hath drown'd his tongue in sack: for my part, the sea cannot drown me. I swam, ere I could recover the shore, five and thirty leagues, off and on ; by this light, thou shalt be my lieutenant, monster, or my standard.
Trin. Your lieutenant, if you lift ; he's no standard:
Trin. Nor go neither : but you'll lie like dogs, and yet say nothing neither.
Ste. Moon-calf, speak once in thy life, if thou beest a good moon-calf.
Cal. How does thy honour ? let me lick thy shoe ; I'll not serve him, he is not valiant.

Cal. Lo, how he mocks me : wilt thou let him, my lord ?
Trin. Lord, quoth he! that a monster should be such a natural !

Ste. Trinculo, keep a good tongue in if

Cal. I thank my noble lord. Wilt thou be pleas'd to hearken once again to the suit I made to thee?
Ste. Marry, will I ; kneel and repeat it; I will stand, and so shall Trinculo.
Enter Ariel invisible. Cal. As I told thee before, I am subject to a tyrant, a sorcerer, that by his cunning hath cheated me of the Hand.
Ari. Thou lieft.
Cal. Thou lieft, thou jesting monkey, thou; I would, my valiant mafter would destroy thee: I do not lie.
Ste. Trinculo, if you trouble him any more in's tale, by this hand, I will supplant some of
Trin. Why, I said nothing.
Ste. That's most certain.
Cal. Yea, yea, my lord, I'll yield him thee asleep, Where thou may'st knock a nail into his head.
Ari. Thou liest, thou canst not.
Cal. What a py’d ninny's this? thou scurvy patch! I do beseech thy greatness, give him blows, And take his bottle from him ; when that's gone, He shall drink nought but brine, for I'll not shew him Where the quick freshes are.
Ste. Trinculo, run into no further danger: interrupt the moniter one word further, and, by this hand, I'll turn my mercy out of doors, and make a stock-filh of thee.
Trin. Why, what did I? I did nothing; I'll go
