ANNE PAGE
Pardon, good father! good my mother, pardon!

PAGE
Now, mistress, how chance you went not with Master Slender?

MISTRESS PAGE
Why went you not with master doctor, maid? (5.5.194)

Both Mr. and Mrs. Page have been conspiring behind each others' backs in hopes that Anne would marry a man of their own choosing. But Anne manages to slip away with Fenton and get hitched, in spite of her parents' scheming. At the end of the day, young love wins out and we learn that Anne Page is a clever girl. Hey, no wonder: her mom is a pretty smart lady, herself.
