Jupiter (Canada) (search for this): act 4, scene 2
AESTRIO Of those that are parents by him true warriors are born, and his sons live eight hundred years. MILPHIDIPPA aside to PALAESTRIO. Fie on you for a fibber! PYRGOPOLINICES Why, straight on, from age to age, they live for a thousand years. PALAESTRIO I spoke within limits, for the reason that she mightn't suppose I was telling lies to her. MILPHIDIPPA aside. I burst, I die! Aloud. How many years will he live himself whose sons live so long? PYRGOPOLINICES Wench, I was born the day after Jupiter was born of Ops. PALAESTRIO If he had only been born the day before the other was, he would have had the realms of heaven. MILPHIDIPPA aside to PALAESTRIO.

It contained nearly two English gallons. full of Philippean gold coins. PALAESTRIO Besides your treasures. Then, of silver, he has mountains, not ingots; Aetna is not so high. MILPHIDIPPA aside. By the stars! O, what a lie! PALAESTRIO to MILPHIDIPPA, aside. How rarely I am playing him off! MILPHIDIPPA to PALAESTRIO, aside. And I; how do I do it? Ain't I gulling him? PALAESTRIO aside. Rarely. MILPHIDIPPA But, prithee, do let me go now. PALAESTRIO to the CAPTAIN. But do you give her some answer, either that you will do it, or that you won't do it. Why cause this poor lady so much anguish of mind, who has never deserved any ill of you? PYRGOPOLINICESB
