Antipholus of Syracuse and Dromio of Syracuse are on a journey to
ANTIPHOLUS OF SYRACUSE Why, how now, Dromio! where runn'st thou so fast?
DROMIO OF SYRACUSE Do you know me, sir? am I Dromio? am I your man? am I myself?
ANTIPHOLUS OF SYRACUSE Thou art Dromio, thou art my man, thou art thyself.
DROMIO OF SYRACUSE I am an ass, I am a woman's man and besides myself.
ANTIPHOLUS What woman's man? and how besides thyself? besides thyself?
DROMIO OF SYRACUSE Marry, sir, besides myself, I am due to a woman; one
that claims me, one that haunts me, one that will have me.
ANTIPHOLUS OF SYRACUSE What claim lays she to thee?
DROMIO OF SYRACUSE Marry sir, such claim as you would lay to your
horse; and she would have me as a beast: not that, I
being a beast, she would have me; but that she,
being a very beastly creature, lays claim to me.
