As You Like It Act 5, Scene 1 Summary

  • In another part of the forest, Audrey admits to Touchstone that another man is in love with her.
  • Just then, the other man wanders in and Touchstone chats with him about his background.
  • Touchstone sweetly suggests, in both language of the forest and the court, that William get lost or Touchstone will kill him. Here's a little sample: "I will kill/ thee a hundred and fifty ways. Therefore, tremble, and depart."
  • William is off, with a hearty "God rest you merry, sir."
  • With that potential plot-disruption out of the way, Corin is free to enter and announce to Touchstone that Ganymede and Aliena want him immediately. As in, now.
