Shylock's serving man Launcelot Gobbo also desires and gains his freedom from Shylock. However, it unfolds for him in a slightly different way than he first anticipates.
In Act II, scene ii, Launcelot has a soliloquy in which he goes back and forth between his conscience and "the fiend at [his] elbow." The fiend encourages him to simply flee Shylock and "run away." His conscience, however, suggests that he stay in his service with the Jew (Shylock).
He meets with his father, however, before he can completely decide whether to follow the advice of the fiend or his conscience. He explains to his father that he runs from the Jew because:
I am famished in his service. You may tell every finger I have with my ribs. Father, I am glad you are come. Give me your present to one Master Bassanio, who, indeed, gives rare new liveries. If I serve him not, I will run as far as God has any ground.
And upon that, Bassanio enters. He counsels Launcelot to return to Shylock and take his leave of him and then to enter into service with him. Launcelot agrees, saying, "I'll take leave of the Jew in the twinkling of an eye."
