     Follow me close, for I will speak to them.
     Gentlemen, good-den: a word with one of you.
     And but one word with one of us?
     Couple it with something; make it a word and a blow.

     Romeo & Juliet, Act III Scene I, William Shakespeare, 1594.

[what follows is completely unrelated, on re-reading I see that it might look like some kind of incitement which it is certainly not - a minute of silence on August 17 at 1 PM will be enough. Strange though ... ]

A-and a few more bits of Romeo and Juliet:

     Nay, as they dare. I will bite my thumb at them;
     Which is disgrace to them if they bear it.
     Do you bite your thumb at us, sir?
     I do bite my thumb, sir.
     Do you bite your thumb at us, sir?
     Is the law of our side if I say ay?
     No sir, I do not bite my thumb at you, sir;
     But I bite my thumb, sir.

     Act I Scene I.

     ... I am none of his flirt-gills;
     I am none of his skains-mates.

     Act II Scene IV.

Romeo & Juliet - closer to the original language.
