Dr. Weller, an Eastern Washington University professor of English and Shakespearean scholar for more than 50 years.
Note to Much Ado About Nothing, 5.1.16: "cry 'hem!' when he should groan"
cry 'hem!': i.e., say "drink up." In Shakespeare's The First Part of Henry IV Prince Henry says that bartenders "cry 'hem'" whenever they think someone isn't drinking fast enough.
