HOTSPUR, WORCESTER, Lord MORTIMER, and Owen GLENDOWER enter.


MORTIMER
These promises are fair, the parties sure,
And our induction full of prosperous hope.
MORTIMER
These commitments are reliable, our allies are solid, and the beginning of our project bodes well.

HOTSPUR
Lord Mortimer and cousin Glendower,
Will you sit down? And Uncle Worcester—
A plague upon it, I have forgot the map.
HOTSPUR
Lord Mortimer, and kinsman Glendower, won’t you please sit? And Uncle Worcester—Dammit! I forgot the map!





10
GLENDOWER
No, here it is. Sit, cousin Percy
Sit, good cousin Hotspur, for by that name
As oft as Lancaster doth speak of you
His cheek looks pale and with a rising sigh
He wisheth you in heaven.
GLENDOWER
Here it is. Sit, kinsman Percy. Sit, good cousin Hotspur. For that is the name King Henry calls you, and whenever he says it, he grows pale, and with a sigh he wishes you were in heaven.


HOTSPUR
   And you in hell,
As oft as he hears Owen Glendower spoke of.
HOTSPUR
And you in hell, whenever he hears someone say “Owen Glendower.”

GLENDOWER
I cannot blame him. At my nativity
The front of heaven was full of fiery shapes,
Of burning cressets, and at my birth
The frame and huge foundation of the earth
Shaked like a coward.
GLENDOWER
I don’t blame him. The sky was full of fiery meteors and comets when I was conceived, and when I was born, the entire earth shook like a coward.



HOTSPUR
   Why, so it would have done
At the same season if your mother’s cat
Had but kittened, though yourself had never been born.
HOTSPUR
Why, the same thing would have happened if your mother’s cat had given birth to kittens that day, whether you’d been born or not.

GLENDOWER
I say the earth did shake when I was born.
GLENDOWER
I say there was an earthquake when I was born.
