  I think it just refused to run because it won't stand for you promulgating
misreferenced quotations like that!

William Shakespeare: The Life and Death of King Richard III
3. SCENE III. London. A Room in the Palace. (continued)

 [ ... ]

Tut, tut, my lord, we will not stand to prate; 
Talkers are no good doers: be assur'd 
We go to use our hands, and not our tongues.

Your eyes drop millstones when fools' eyes fall tears: 
I like you, lads;--about your business straight; 
Go, go, despatch.

We will, my noble lord.
