ἓν λείπεται. See cr. n. ἐλλείπεται (which Hermann and others retain) is less pointed, in view of the two alternatives κρείττους γένεσθε μένετ᾽ αὐτοῦ. For λείπεται said of the μεταξύ τι (Symp. 202 A) or third alternative, cf. Theaet. 188 A ἄλλο γ᾽ οὐδὲν λείπεται περὶ ἕκαστον πλὴν εἰδέναι μὴ εἰδέναι.

ὡς -- διανοεῖσθε: ‘well, you may make up your mind that we shall refuse to listen.’ Cf. (with Stallbaum) Crat. 439 C διανοηθέντεςὡς ἰόντων ἁπάντων ἀεὶ καὶ ῥεόντων. μὴ is owing to the imperative: cf. Soph. O. C. 1154 and Jebb's note.
