Quote #10

George: You don't make it in the sack, you're a houseboy. […]
Nick: Tell him I'm not a houseboy.
Martha: No; you're not a houseboy. (3.157-3.159)

Martha is lying to her husband in code, saying that she did indeed sleep with Nick. Is her motivation simply to hurt him? What other levels of sexual warfare are going on here?
