Measure for Measure, Act V, Scene I. The city gate

Duke. What, are you married?
Mariana. No, my lord.
Duke. Are you a maid?
Mariana. No, my lord.
Duke. A widow, then?
Mariana. Neither, my lord.
Duke. Why, you are nothing, then: neither maid, widow, nor wife?
Lucio. My lord, she may be a punk; for many of them are neither maid, widow, nor wife.
