Troilus and Cressida: Act 5 Scene 6

Scene VI Another part of the plains.

[Enter AJAX]

AJAX
Troilus, thou coward Troilus, show thy head!

[Enter DIOMEDES]

DIOMEDES
Troilus, I say! where's Troilus?

AJAX
What wouldst thou?

DIOMEDES
I would correct him.

AJAX
Were I the general, thou shouldst have my office
Ere that correction. Troilus, I say! what, Troilus!

[Enter TROILUS]

TROILUS
O traitor Diomed! turn thy false face, thou traitor,
And pay thy life thou owest me for my horse!

DIOMEDES
Ha, art thou there?

AJAX
I'll fight with him alone: stand, Diomed.

DIOMEDES
He is my prize; I will not look upon.

TROILUS
Come, both you cogging Greeks; have at you both!

[Exeunt, fighting]

[Enter HECTOR]

HECTOR
Yea, Troilus? O, well fought, my youngest brother!

[Enter ACHILLES]

ACHILLES
Now do I see thee, ha! have at thee, Hector!

HECTOR
Pause, if thou wilt.

ACHILLES
I do disdain thy courtesy, proud Trojan:
Be happy that my arms are out of use:
My rest and negligence befriends thee now,
But thou anon shalt hear of me again;
Till when, go seek thy fortune.

[Exit]

HECTOR
Fare thee well:
I would have been much more a fresher man,
Had I expected thee. How now, my brother!

[Re-enter TROILUS]

TROILUS
Ajax hath ta'en AEneas: shall it be?
No, by the flame of yonder glorious heaven,
He shall not carry him: I'll be ta'en too,
Or bring him off: fate, hear me what I say!
I reck not though I end my life to-day.

[Exit]

[Enter one in sumptuous armour]

HECTOR
Stand, stand, thou Greek; thou art a goodly mark:
No? wilt thou not? I like thy armour well;
I'll frush it and unlock the rivets all,
But I'll be master of it: wilt thou not,
beast, abide?
Why, then fly on, I'll hunt thee for thy hide.

[Exeunt]
