To prick the sides of my intent, but only
Vaulting ambition, which o’erleaps itself
And falls on th’ other.

Uncapable of pity, void and empty
From any dram of mercy.
Give me my robe. Put on my crown. I have
Immortal longings in me.

Claudio: Well… what do you want, then?
Benedick: I don’t know! I just wanna be with her all the time. I wanna hear about her day and tell her about mine. I wanna hold her hand and smell her hair. But I don’t wanna be her stupid boyfriend.
Most of the time living in LA is the best except for those times when it’s not New York.
Peace! I will stop your mouth.

Still the hottest line ever.
