Shakespeare on prevarication

Trying to find this Shakespeare passage: two guards talking idly, something about prevaricators being first in line for hell, etc. Ring a bell for anyone? thanks!

My first thought was the porter scene in Macbeth, but it's only one person. Here's a link to the scene.

Might you be thinking of the Porter in MacBeth?

ooh you have it!! I did have a sense it was in Macbeth but the word prevaricator instead of equivocator threw off my searches

My favorite alcohol description!
Drink, sir, is a great provoker of three things . . . nose-painting, sleep, and urine. Lechery, sir, it provokes, and unprovokes; it provokes the desire, but it takes away the performance.
