The Vasty Deep Version 1.1

Wicked Witch: I can call spirits from the vasty deep.
Codger: Why, so can I, or so can any man;
But will they come back when you do call for them?
Wicked Witch: Why I can teach you, cousin, to command the Devil.
Codger: And I can teach thee, coz, to shame the devil---
By telling the truth. Tell the truth and shame the devil.

Shakespeare - Henry the Fourth, Part 1 - Act 3, scene 1, 52-58 with names changed to illuminate the innocent.
