SIR HUGH EVANS
Seese is not good to give putter; your belly is all putter.

FALSTAFF
'Seese' and 'putter'! have I lived to stand at the
taunt of one that makes fritters of English? This
is enough to be the decay of lust and late-walking
through the realm. (5.5.134-136)

Falstaff takes a lot of pride in his speech, which is why he can't stand the fact that a foreigner who makes "fritters" of the English language is talking smack to him. For Falstaff (and Shakespeare, too), being a master of English language is a matter of national pride.
