IAGO

Will you think so?

IAGO

Do you think so?

OTHELLO

Think so, Iago?

OTHELLO

Think what, Iago?

IAGO

What,To kiss in private?

IAGO

What, that they kissed in private?

OTHELLO

An unauthorized kiss!

OTHELLO

An inappropriate kiss!

IAGO

Or to be naked with her friend in bedAn hour or more, not meaning any harm?

IAGO

Or because she was naked in bed with a friend for just an hour or more, not meaning any harm?

OTHELLO

Naked in bed, Iago, and not mean harm! It is hypocrisy against the devil. They that mean virtuously, and yet do so, The devil their virtue tempts, and they tempt heaven.

OTHELLO

Iago, naked in bed and not meaning any harm? That would be like tricking the devil. If they were acting this way but had virtuous intentions, they were tempted by the devil and they were tempting God to damn them.

IAGO

So they do nothing, ’tis a venial slip. But if I give my wife a handkerchief—

By heaven, I would most gladly have forgot it. Thou saidst—Oh, it comes o'er my memory, As doth the raven o'er the infectious house, Boding to all—he had my handkerchief.

Lie with her? lie on her? We say “lie on her” when theybelie her! Lie with her—that’s fulsome. Handkerchief—confessions—handkerchief! To confess, and be hanged for his labor. First to be hanged, and then toconfess—I tremble at it . Nature would not invest herself in such shadowing passion without some instruction. It is not words that shake me thus. Pish! Noses, ears, and lips. Is ’t possible? Confess!—Handkerchief!—Oh, devil!—

Stand you awhile apart, Confine yourself but in a patient list. Whilst you were here o'erwhelmèd with your grief— A passion most resulting such a man— Cassio came hither. I shifted him away And laid good ’scuses upon your ecstasy, Bade him anon return and here speak with me, The which he promised. Do but encave yourself, And mark the fleers, the gibes, and notable scorns That dwell in every region of his face. For I will make him tell the tale anew Where, how, how oft, how long ago, and when He hath, and is again to cope your wife. I say, but mark his gesture. Marry, patience, Or I shall say you are all in all in spleen, And nothing of a man.

Now will I question Cassio of Bianca, A huswife that by selling her desires Buys herself bread and clothes. It is a creature That dotes on Cassio, as ’tis the strumpet’s plague To beguile many and be beguiled by one. He, when he hears of her, cannot refrain From the excess of laughter. Here he comes.
