Dirty old Shakespeare

In The Taming Of The Shrew, there was the line:

LUCENTIO: Sir, give him head; I know he'll prove a jade.

In Romeo and Juliet, the bawdiness is saved for the stage directions:

ROMEO: Farewell, farewell! one kiss, and I'll descend.

[He goeth down]

Apparently he meant that he was going to descend the wall that leads to
Juliet's balcony, but it sounds a bit sus to me...
