As I recall, the # of lines of the major characters of 1HIV is listed in one of
the introductions at the beginning of the Pelican Shakespeare.  I remember that
the # of lines of Falstaff, Hal, and Hotspur are nearly the same.

The multivolume Spevack Concordance has lines numbered and indeed concorded.
But it's been too long since I've had one of those fat tomes in hand to
remember much more.  Is't possible to get that line information from the
various search engines on our different e-texts?  Must be!

Many thanks to all of you who sent me leads for finding number of lines per
character.  You've been a real help.  As a reader-response critic, I have to
confess some amusement at how these countings vary from authority to authority,
T. J. King, Harbage, Rolfe, Spevack.  That's inevitable, I suppose, given the
editorial problems of lineation.  Still, it suggests a real limit to what non
reader-response critics consider as "there."

Again, thanks, and thanks to Hardy Cook for running this excellent list.
