Solutions for Act V Scene 1 - Lime Tucky

The nonsensical title is screaming to be spoonerised to form the two word phrase "time lucky". This fragment seems in complete, a fact that is remedied by the addition of another word: "third", perhaps. This informs the puzzler of the basic mechanic of the whole puzzle: to complete the spoonerisms.

Immediately, though, one will see that the puzzle clues are not well spoonerised, nor are all of them even two words - they are however quite obviously made up of two parts. It isn't hard to start trying synonyms of the parts of the clues that do spoonerise. I good starting point would perhaps be "Satellite 10th letter", which clues "moon J", which spoonerise to form "june may". This implies the missing third of the pair is "April". If we continue this for all the clues we get:
