Q. Why doesn’t Proteus go to Milan with Valentine?

Because if he’s around that many mint milanos, he’ll fall off his diet
Because they have a huge falling-out and are no longer friends
Because he doesn’t want to leave behind the woman he loves
Because he can’t afford to
Q. Why does Julia tear up Proteus’ letter?

Because she thinks it is from Valentine
Because it contains her credit card information and social security number
Because Lucetta teases her about it
Because she hates him and refuses to be his wife
Q. Where does Proteus’ father force him to go?

To the Super Bowl. Oh, yeah, twist his arm.
The father-son dance
Q. What does the Duke of Milan see fall out of Valentine’s coat?

He was wearing a trench coat. We’ll let you fill in the blanks.
A dagger and a vial of blood
A sack of money and a codpiece
A love letter and a rope ladder
Q. Why does Julia dress as a boy?

To conceal her identity from Proteus
So that she isn’t accosted by any men
To get into an all-boys school
Have you seen what they made women wear back then? Does she really need another reason?
