I do love nothing in the world so well as you

Benedick
I do love nothing in the world so well as you—is not that strange?
Beatrice
As strange as the thing I know not. It were as possible for me to say I loved nothing so well as you, but believe me not, and yet I lie not; I confess nothing, nor I deny nothing. I am sorry for my cousin.
Benedick
By my sword, Beatrice, thou lovest me!
Beatrice
Do not swear and eat it.
Benedick
I will swear by it that you love me, and I will make him eat it that says I love not you.
Beatrice
Will you not eat your word?
Benedick
With no sauce that can be devised to it. I protest I love thee.
Beatrice
Why then, God forgive me.
Benedick
What offense, sweet Beatrice?
Beatrice
You have stayed me in a happy hour. I was about to protest I loved you.
Benedick
And do it with all thy heart.a
Beatrice
I love you with so much of my heart that none is left to protest.
Benedick
Come, bid me do anything for thee.
Beatrice
Kill Claudio.
Benedick
Ha! Not for the wide world.
Beatrice
You kill me to deny it. Farewell.
