A Midsummers Night Dream
written by William Shakespeare

Puck: If we shadows have offended, think but this; and all is mended that you have but slumbered here while these visions did appear and this weak and idle theme no more yielding but a dream. Gentles--do not reprehend if you pardon, we will mend. And, as I am an honest Puck if we have unearned luck. Now to scape the serpents tongue. We will make amends ere long else the Puck a liar call. So--goodnight unto you all. Give me your hands if we be friends. And Robin shall restore amends.

Note: Of course, Puck has been played by many many people, mind you. Including here, in "Dead Poets Society" by Robert Sean Leonard, but in the past, also by Mickey Rooney, Ian Holm, and Stanley Tucci ("The Imposters", "Big Night") (in a version also starring Kevin Kline and Michelle Pfeiffer (see IMDb for more info). It was placed here for convenience sake).
