Subject:        Biondello

We're doing Shrew at the moment and have been blessed with an amazing
12-year-old Biondello who had us in the floor last night with the
"horse" speech.  He and I have a question about IV.4, the line, "I knew
a wench married in an afternoon as she went to the garden for parsley to
stuff a rabbit..."

What is that about?

And does anyone have any insight as to why Tranio, disguised as
Lucentio, suddenly starts talking like Hortensio in III.2, the "waiting
for Petruchio" scene?  All I can figure is that Hortensio was in the
scene and then someone pointed out to Bill that Hortensio was in fact in
disguise as Litio at that point.
