Quote #7

BOYET: I profane my lips on thy foot, my eyes on thy picture, and my heart on thy every part. (4.1.25)

Boyet is reading Armado's letter to Jaquenetta. As was the courtly custom, Armado places himself below her. Even laying his eyes on her picture dirties her. (But this doesn't keep him from imagining his heart on "every part.")

Quote #8

KING: I heard your guilty rhymes, observ'd your fashion,
Saw sighs reek from you, noted well your passion.
'Ay me!' says one. 'O Jove!' the other cries.
One, her hairs were gold; crystal the other's eyes. (4.3.38)

It's funny listening to the King give his friends a hard time, when we figure Berowne must be about to out him. Shakespeare sets up a number of satisfying expectation/fulfillment patterns in the play.

Quote #9

ROSALINE: You'll ne'er be friends with him: 'a kill'd your sister.
KATHARINE: He made her melancholy, sad, and heavy;
And so she died.(5.2.6-7)

This quote is a little depressing. The mention of Katharine's sister's death by love foreshadows the bad news brought by Marcade.
