Bottom: I play Pyramus! I play Pyramus! I play Pyramus!... What is Pyramus?

Quince, the Carpenter: Come, sit down, every mother's son, and rehearse your parts. And we will do it in action as we will do it before the duke. Pyramus, you begin.
Bottom: Well, I begin. Oh, Thisny!
Quince, the Carpenter: And when you have spoken your speech...
Bottom: Then I stop.
Quince, the Carpenter: No, no.
Bottom: Well, then I go on.
Quince, the Carpenter: No, no! Then you enter into that brake; and so everyone according to his cue. Thisby! Stand forth. Speak, Pyramus.
Bottom: Oh, Thisny, the flowers -...

[He gets a whiff of Flute's breath and recoils]

[Flute erupts into a coughing fit. Bottom throws down his scroll, storms off, and is led back by Quince. He points accusatively at Flute]

Quince, the Carpenter: [handing back Bottom's scroll] Thisby.
Bottom: "But hark, a voice! Stay you but here a while, and by and by I will to you appear."
[He exits the wrong way]
Quince, the Carpenter: Into that brake!

Flute, the Bellows-Mender: "I'll meet thee, Pyramus, at Ninny's tomb."
Quince, the Carpenter: Ninny's?
Flute, the Bellows-Mender: Ninny's.
Quince, the Carpenter: Ninny's.
Flute, the Bellows-Mender: Ninny's.
Quince, the Carpenter: "Ninus' tomb", man!
Flute, the Bellows-Mender: [Flute begins to repeat Quince's words and gestures] Ninus' tomb, man!
Quince, the Carpenter: But you must not speak that yet!
Flute, the Bellows-Mender: But you must not speak that yet!
Quince, the Carpenter: Ohhh...
Flute, the Bellows-Mender: Ohhh...
Quince, the Carpenter: That you answer to Pyramus!
Flute, the Bellows-Mender: That you answer to Pyramus!
Quince, the Carpenter: You speak all your part at once, cues and all!
Flute, the Bellows-Mender: You speak all your part at once, cues... I won't play anymore.


A Midsummer Night's Dream (1999)
Tom Snout: [Puck has turned Bottom into a donkey] Bottom, thou art changed. What do I see on thee?
Bottom the Weaver: What do you see? What; do you see an ass' head of your own, do you?
Peter Quince: [backing away] Bless me. Thou art translated.
[all run off, leaving Bottom alone on the stage]
Bottom the Weaver: Why do they run away? I see their knavery. This is to make an ass of me.

Bottom the Weaver: Since lion vile hath here deflowered my dear...
Peter Quince: DEVOURED.
