MOTH. As swift as lead, sir.
ARMADO. The meaning, pretty ingenious? Is not lead a metal heavy, dull, and slow?
MOTH. Minime, honest master; or rather, master, no.
ARMADO. I say lead is slow.
MOTH. You are too swift, sir, to say so: Is that lead slow which is fir’d from a gun?
ARMADO. Sweet smoke of rhetoric! He reputes me a cannon; and the bullet, that’s he; I shoot thee at the swain.
MOTH. Thump, then, and I flee.
