Quote #7

BEROWNE: For valour, is not Love a Hercules,
Still climbing trees in the Hesperides? (4.3.93)

Is this Berowne, or Armado? Noble or clown, the boys need to know that someone respectable was once in love, too.

Quote #8

COSTARD: A conqueror and afeard to speak! Run away for shame, Alisander. (5.2.272)

Running away for shame is what the nobles – dressed like Russians – did just a few minutes before.

Quote #9

ARMADO: The sweet war-man is dead and rotten; sweet chucks, beat not the bones of the buried; when he breathed, he was a man. (5.2.329)

The "war-man" part of the King and his men – the part that saw women as the enemy in Act 1 – is also on its way out.
