pick up boot

This from a Guardian article about father and son actors Timothy and Sam West. I've definitely seen this story before. Sam speaking:

We share quite a lot of tastes and sensibilities. But we are quite different as actors. When we worked together 10 years ago in Henry IV, he was Falstaff and I was Hal so we were on stage together in the first scene and I picked up his script and he picked up mine. At one point I had written, "palliate the follies I can neither avoid nor deny". At the same spot, he had written, "pick up boot"!
