The Merry Wives of Windsor Act 5, Scene 1 Summary

  • At the Garter Inn, Falstaff chats with Mistress Quickly, who promises to help him put together his "Herne the Hunter" costume.
  • Ford shows up in his "Brooke" disguise, and Falstaff tells him all about being beaten by that crazy guy Master Ford.
  • Falstaff admits he's never been beaten so badly in his life, not even when he was a snot-nosed kid who went around causing mischief and playing hooky from school. So, that's saying something.
  • Finally, Falstaff vows to get back at Ford by hooking up with his wife in the woods that night.
