  • Back in Florence, Italy, Bertram has become a war hero. (Huh, we didn't know he had it in him.)
  • The Duke of Florence gives him props and names him general of his cavalry.
  • Bertram does an aw shucks routine and says he hopes he'll make the Duke proud. Then he prays to Mars, the god of war, and says that he loves warfare but hates love.
