Set Caliban and his companions free:
Re-enter Ariel, driving in Caliban, STEPHANO,
and Trinculo, in their stolen apparel. Ste. Every man shift for all the rest, and let no man take care for himself; for all is but fortune: Coragio, bully monster, Coragio!

Pro. Mark but the badges of these men, my lords, Then say, if they be true 6:- This mis-shapen knave, His mother was a witch; and one so strong That could control the moon, make flows and ebbs, And deal in her command, without her power ; These three have robb’d me; and this demi-devil For he's a bastard one,) had plotted with them To take my life: two of these fellows you Must know, and own; this thing of darkness I Acknowledge mine. Cal.
I shall be pinch'd to death. Alon. Is not this Stephano, my drunken butler? Seb. He is drunk now: Where had he wine ? Alon. And Trinculo is reeling ripe: Where should
Find this grand liquor that hath gilded them? – How cam'st thou in this pickle?

Go to; away! Alon. Hence, and bestow your luggage where
you found it.
Seb. Or stole it, rather.
[Exeunt Cal. Ste. and Trin. Pro. Sir, I invite your highness, and your train, To my poor cell : where
shall take your rest For this one night : which (part of it,) I'll waste With such discourse, as, I not doubt, shall make it Go quick away: the story of my life, And the particular accidents, gone by, Since I came to this isle: And in the morn, I'll bring you to your ship, and so to Naples Where I have hope to see the nuptial Of these our dear beloved solemniz'd; And thence retire me to my Milan, where Every third thought shall be my grave. Alon.
I long To hear the story of
life, which must Take the ear strangely.
I'll deliver all ; And promise you calm seas, auspicious gales, And sail so expeditious, that shall catch Your royal fleet far off. — My Ariel ;: chick, That is thy charge; then to the elements Be free, and fare thou well ! - [Aside.] Please you draw near.
