Enter CELIA and ROSALIND

CELIA

I pray thee, Rosalind, sweet my coz, be merry.

CELIA

Please, Rosalind, my sweet cousin, be happy.

ROSALIND

Dear Celia, I show more mirth than I am mistress of, and would you yet I were merrier? Unless you could teachme to forget a banished father, you must not learn me how to remember any extraordinary pleasure.

ROSALIND

Dear Celia, I already look happier than I feel, and you want me to look even happier? Unless you can teach me to forget my banished father, you shouldn't try to teach me to remember any great happiness.

CELIA

Herein I see thou lov’st me not with the full weight that I love thee. If my uncle, thy banished father, had banished thy uncle, the duke my father, so thou hadst been still with me, I could have taught my love to take thy father for mine. So wouldst thou, if the truth of thy love to me were so righteously tempered as mine is to thee.

CELIA

Now I see that you don't love me as much as I love you. If instead my uncle (your banished father), had banished your uncle (the duke my father), I could have learned to love your father as my own as long as you were still with me. You would do the same, if your love for me was as true and well-forged as mine is for you.

ROSALIND

Well, I will forget the condition of my estate to rejoice in yours.

ROSALIND

CELIA

You know my father hath no child but I, nor none is like to have, and, truly, when he dies, thou shalt be his heir, for what he hath taken away from thy father perforce, I will render thee again in affection. By minehonor I will, and when I break that oath, let me turn monster. Therefore, my sweet Rose, my dear Rose, be merry.
