Caius enters the room (babbling to himself in French, like you do) and asks Mistress Quickly to fetch his green box. From the closet.
Quickly manages to grab the box without Doctor Caius seeing Peter Simple. (Whew. Close call.)
Then Caius remembers that, hey, he also needs some medicine from the same closet.
Before Mistress Quickly can stop him, he runs over, flings open the doors, and spots Peter Simple hiding in the closet. (Busted! We told you this was like a wacky sitcom.)
Before Caius can stab Peter Simple in the guts with his sword, Mistress Quickly intervenes and Simple explains that he was delivering a letter asking Mistress Quickly to put in a good word for Slender with Anne Page.
Unfortunately, Simple's explanation doesn't help.
It turns out that Caius also wants to marry Anne and Mistress Quickly has already promised to help him.
Caius whips out a piece of paper and writes a note to Evans, in which he calls him a "scurvy jackanape priest" and threatens to cut out his '"two stones." Yeah, that probably means what you think it means.
Mistress Quickly points out that Evans was asking on behalf of a friend, but Caius doesn't care. He'll kill the priest anyway.
Caius threatens to throw Mistress Quickly out of his house if she doesn't get Anne Page to marry him.
Then he storms out while Mistress Quickly mutters under her breath about Caius being an "ass-head." Hey, we didn't write it.
Before we know it, a guy named Master Fenton shows up and we find out that, you guessed it, Mistress Quickly has also agreed to help him pursue Anne Page. Mistress Quickly may have a little too much on her plate, don't you think?
Quickly tells Fenton what he wants to hear: that Anne is in love with him.
Seriously, Fenton? Just the other day, you guys spent an hour talking about that sexy wart above your eye. (We're not kidding.)
Fenton gives Mistress Quickly a bunch of money for helping him and she promises to talk him up the next time she sees Anne.
Alone on stage, Quickly confesses to the audience that Fenton's a nice guy but she knows for a fact that "Anne loves him not."
