MVW Acts 2 & 3

Falstaff: I will not lend thee a penny

Pistol: Why, then the world’s mine oyster, which I with sword will open.

Falstaff: Not a penny. I have been content, sir, you should lay my countenance to pawn.

This struck me as Pistol being honest. I think this passage shows Pistol as a motivated person. By saying the “world’s mine oyster” he is saying he can do anything.  Life is his for the taking. I also took this as Pistol saying that he will unlock the truth of what Falstaff is doing. It’s almost like he is holding something over Falstaff’s head and he will drop the ball at any second. He’s putting himself in charge.
