lines 97-100: The interruption by the Friar and the Host

       "Nay, ther thou lixt, thou Somonour!" quod the Frere.
       "Pees," quod oure Hoost, "for Cristes mooder deere!
Tel forth thy tale, and spare it nat at al."
100       "So thryve I," quod this Somonour, "so I shal!"
       "Nay, there you lie, you summoner!" cried the friar.
       "Peace, for Christ's Mother's sake, call no one liar!"
Our host said. "Tell your tale, nor spare at all."
100       "So thrive I," said this summoner, "that I shall."
