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. Antipholus of Syracuse: What is she? ’ I have but lean luck in the match, and yet is she a wondrous fat marriage.
