τιμωρήσωμαι. This echoes the τιμωρήσομαι of 213 D.

Οὗτος. “Ho, there!” Cp. 172 A.

ἐπὶ τὰ γελοιότερα. “To make fun of me”: cp. Phileb. 40 C (ἡδοναὶ) μεμιμημέναι τὰς ἀληθεῖς ἐπὶ τὰ γελοιότερα (“caricatures”): so ἐπὶ τὰ αἰσχίονα Polit. 293 E, 297 C.

ἐπαινέσει. Plato always uses the middle form of the future, with the doubtful exception of Laws 719 E (where Burnet, after Bekker, corrects ἐπαινέσοι to ἐπαινέσαι), see Veitch Gk. Verbs s.v.

Οὐκ ἂν φθάνοιμι. Sc. τἀληθῆ λέγων: iamiam dicam. Cp. 185 E, Phaedo 100 C, Euthyd. 272 D (in all which places the participle is expressed).

καὶ...ποίησον. Hommel rashly proposes to read ποιήσων for ποίησον and remove the stop after the word. For καὶ μέντοι, see Madv. Gr. S. § 254.

ἐπιλαβοῦ. “Pull me up,” “call me to order.” Cp. Gorg. 469 C, 506 B ἐπιλαμβάνου ἐάν τί σοι δοκῶ μὴ καλῶς λέγειν.
