Quote #1

To Master Brooke you yet shall hold your word, For he tonight shall lie with Mistress Ford. (5.5.221-222)


By the end of the play, Ford realizes he's been acting like a fool and promises to never mistrust his wife again. He even manages to crack a joke about his jealous ways when he tells Falstaff that "Master Brooke" is going to sleep with Mistress Ford tonight. Remember, Ford disguised himself as a guy named "Brooke" earlier in the play in an attempt to catch his wife cheating. We've just got one question, Shmooperinos: does this weird joke make you feel as uncomfortable as it makes us?
