KING
Is there no exorcist
Beguiles the truer office of mine eyes?
Is't real that I see?
HELEN
No, my good lord;
'Tis but the shadow of a wife you see,
The name and not the thing. (5.3.42)

Here, Helen just can't resist making a joke about being the "shadow [ghost] of a wife." Shakespeare seems to be making a joke about Helen coming back to haunt her cheating husband.
