How say you by that?

I have surely said this before but I don’t know when nor can I remember how, but this is the sort of line I particularly love. It is simple in its construction and its meaning. It’s easily understood but it’s got some STYLE. It feels like an utterly unique way to express “What do you think of that?” or “How ‘bout this?” or “What do you say about that?” or “Whaddya know?”
And it has a rhythm that rolls right off the tongue even in the midst of a very prose-y section of the play. It’s a sentence I feel like I could say 10 times in a row and still be enjoying it on the 11th.
