    HERO

    And bid her come hither.

    URSULA

    5Well.

    MARGARET

    Troth, I think your other rebato were better.

    HERO

    No, pray thee, good Meg, I’ll wear this.

    MARGARET

    By my troth, ’s not so good, and I warrant your cousin will
    say so.

    HERO

    10My cousin’s a fool, and thou art another. I’ll wear none but
    this.

    MARGARET

    I like the new tire within excellently, if the hair were a
    thought browner; and your gown’s a most rare fashion, i'
    faith. I saw the Duchess of Milan’s gown that they praise so.

    HERO

    15Oh, that exceeds, they say.
  • HERO, MARGARET, andURSULA enter.

    HERO

    Good Ursula, go wake my cousin and ask her to get up.

    URSULA

    I will, lady.

    HERO

    And request that she come here.

    URSULA

    Very well.
    She exits.

    MARGARET

    Really, I think your other ruff is better.

    HERO

    No, please good Meg, I’ll wear this one.

    MARGARET

    Honestly, it’s not as good as the other one, and I’m sure your cousin will agree with me.

    HERO

    My cousin’s a fool, and you are too. I’ll wear this one and none other.

    MARGARET

    I like your new wig and headdress, though I’d like it more if the hair were a shade browner. And your gown is really stylish. You know, I saw the Duchess of Milan’s gown, the one that everyone praises so highly.

    HERO

    Oh, they say that dress surpasses all others.
